Justin Bieber Facing Judge
The Justin Bieber saga continues.
Pop star Justin Bieber is facing driving under the influence and other charges after authorities said he raced through a Miami Beach neighborhood in a rented Lamborghini, cursed at cops as he resisted arrest and admitted to consuming drugs and alcohol.
Bieber wore an orange prison outfit for his first appearance in bond court Thursday afternoon, where Judge Joseph P. Farina ordered him held on $2,500 bond. He has been charged with DUI, resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license.
The incident happened just after 4 a.m. in the area of Pine Tree Drive and West 26th Street, Miami Beach Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez said. After his arrest, the pop star admitted to consuming alcohol and prescription medications and smoking marijuana, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez said.
He posted bond and was released about an hour after his court appearance. As Bieber left the Miami-Dade Jail, he got on top of an SUV and waved to the crowd.
His motorcade drove around Miami-Dade for two hours before arriving at the Icon Brickell tower in Miami.
