The troubled Canadian singer, Justin Bieber, was released from jail on Thursday after being arrested for drunk driving, resisting arrest and driving without a valid licence.
Police in Miami Beach pulled him over just after 4am when they saw him racing in a yellow Lamborghini on a residential street that had been blocked by two black SUVs. Officers reported that Bieber, 19, initially resisted arrest, swore at them and demanded to know why he was being picked up.
His friend, Khalil Amir Sharieff, who was driving a red Ferrari, was also arrested.
Bieber, who sported a broad smile for his booking picture, wore bright red jail fatigues when he and Sharieff appeared by video link for their arraignment hearing. They remained silent as their defence attorney, Roy Black, negotiated bond. Bieber's was set at $2,500, Sharieff’s at $1,000.
