Innocent heartthrob days behind him, Justin Bieber was arrested on DUI charges Thursday.

Miami police say they arrested a bleary-eyed Bieber — smelling of alcohol — after officers saw him drag-racing before dawn on a residential street, his yellow Lamborghini traveling at nearly twice the speed limit.

The 19-year-old pop star later admitted smoking marijuana, drinking and taking a prescription medication.

Bieber was charged with DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest. According to The Associated Press, at one point, he said to an officer, “What the f— did I do, why did you stop me?”

Released about an hour after a court appearance, Bieber’s bond was set at $2,500 by a Miami-Dade County judge.

Bieber’s troubles aren’t limited to Florida.

In California, the troubled pop star is under investigation in a felony vandalism case related to egg-throwing, has been accused of reckless driving and is being sued by a former bodyguard.DUIFeaturesGossipJustin BieberMiami
