Last week police searched the home of 19-year old singer Justin Bieber looking for evidence in which he allegedly egged the house of a neighbor. Now this week the pop star gets arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and drag racing in Miami.
Police saw Bieber in his yellow Lamborghini racing in a residential area and reportedly showed “signs of impairment” and failed a sobriety test. In May of 2013 former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson called police as the two live in the same gated community in response to Bieber’s reckless driving through the community. Johnson even went over to confront him, yet didn’t get the opportunity. Another witness called police as well and according to sheriff Steve Whitmore he said “their eyewitness testimony to our deputies was definitive — not only the speed, not only the vehicle, but Mr. Bieber was sitting and driving in the driver’s side seat.“
From egging a house, driving recklessly in his own gated community and getting arrested for DUI, drag racing Bieber is showcasing his own immaturity. The only hope is that the state of Florida sends him a stiff message that his actions have consequences that will result in a lengthy prison stay.
