Justin Bieber was arrested this morning on charges of drag racing and failing a sobriety test, Miami Beach Police tell New Times this morning.

"Kid needs help," police spokesperson Bobby Hernandez says. Hernandez added that Bieber's entourage blocked traffic at Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street to create a "drag racing strip" so the pop star would have ample space to speed.
