Los Angeles – Justin Bieber has been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and drag racing.

The Boyfriend singer was arrested earlier this morning in Miami Beach, Florida, after driving a rented Lamborghini, police sources told a Florida TV station.

There are no further details about the arrest at this stage, but the news comes after Bieber was spotted in several places around town in recent days.

He posted a photograph on Instagram after a visit to a skate shop in Miami and has been spending time with friends.

Meanwhile, Bieber – who reportedly spent $75 000 (R813 000) at a strip club over the weekend – had his home in Calabasas, California, searched by police last week after he was accused of a vicious egg attack on his neighbour.

Detectives reportedly raided the 19-year-old star’s mansion and one person was arrested on suspicion of drug possession.

In July last year, marijuana and drug paraphernalia was also seized from one of the singer’s tour buses although Bieber was not on the bus at the time.
