Justin Bieber's Miami Beach Arrest Report and Mug Shot: An Extremely Detailed Breakdown
"Why the fuck are you doing this?"
That's what Justin Bieber whined when a Miami Beach Police Department officer halted the 19-year-old pop star and his homies' impromptu, early-morning street-racing escapades along Pine Tree Drive.
According to the MBPD's arrest report, Bieber had "a flushed face, bloodshot eyes, and an odor of alcohol on his breath." He was arrested, failed a sobriety test, and given a Breathalyzer as well as a so-called "drug evaluation."
The Biebz's misdemeanor charges include resisting arrest without violence, DUI, driving with an expired Georgia driver's license, and being a douche.

Justin Bieber's Arrest Report
*Via Miami Beach Police Department
Officially arrested at 4:13 a.m. by an MBPD officer named Medina, the Biebz and his street-racing bros were first spotted by another cop, "Cosner #526," who "observed two Lamborghinis (one yellow and one red)" as well as "two black SUVs" stopping traffic.
"This," the report notes, "facilitated an open road for the two Lamborghinis to race." And after U-turning, the officer witnessed "both vehicles start a contest of speed (drag racing)," which Cosner "estimates... attained an approximate speed of about 55-60 MPH."
Now, that's a pretty slow performance in a motorsport that routinely reaches triple-digit rates of velocity. But it was still obviously illegal to exceed "the speed limit in this residential area... 30 MPH."
So Cosner "advised other units" and stopped the red vehicle (actually a Ferrari driven by the Biebz' rapper buddy Khalil) while Medina in a separate cop car "caught up to the yellow Lamborghini" after it "made a right turn" onto 41st Street.
After he "initiated a traffic stop," Medina "approached the vehicle" and "asked the driver," Bieber, "to place the vehicle in park."
The pop star's response: "Why did you stop me?" and "Why the fuck are you doing this?" and "What the fuck did I do?"
The officer "immediately smelled an odor of alcohol emanating from the driver's breath and bloodshot eyes" and noticed that Bieber "had slow deliberate movements and a stupor look on his face."
Recognizing these "indicators of an impaired driver," Medina ordered the Biebz "to exit the vehicle." But the pop star took his sweet time "as he kept going through his pants pockets."
At that point, "fearing that the driver might have a weapon or contraband," the officer told Bieber to face the Lambo and assume the position for a "cursory patdown."
However, the kid just wouldn't listen, placing his hands on the car, taking them off, and squealing, "I ain't got no fucking weapons! Why do you have to search me? What the fuck is this about?"
One last time, he disobeyed orders and took his hands off the Lambo. So the officer "grabbed his right hand and stated to him that he was under arrest."
Predictably, the Biebz "began to resist... pulling his right arm away" and idiotically asking, "What are you doing?"
After being cuffed, though, the perp caused "no further incident," eventually admitting (according to MBPD chief Raymond Martinez) that he'd been drinking, smoking weed, and popping prescription meds.
He even smiled for the mug shot.
