Justin Bieber has been released from jail after being arrested for drunk driving and driving without a valid licence.

The singer was released on a $2500 (£1505) bond, alongside his friend Khalil Amir Sharieff, whose bond was set lower, at $1000 (£602). The pop singer was pulled over in Miami after his yellow Lamborghini was spotted as one of two vehicles racing at 4.09am.

Miami police spokesman Sergeant Bobby Hernandez revealed that 19-year-old Bieber resisted arrest and failed a field sobriety test after being caught driving at double the 55mph speed limit. Bieber "had been smoking marijuana and he did consume a beer" according to Hernandez. See Bieber's mug shot above.

The Guardian now reports that when the officer attempted to arrest Bieber, the singer said: "Why the fuck are you doing this?... What the fuck did I do? Why did you stop me?"

Miami Beach police chief Raymond Martinez said Bieber was "a little belligerent, using some choice words" upon his arrest. Bieber's arrest marks his second run in with the police in 2014 after he was questioned over the egging of his neighbour's house in Calabasas, California earlier in January.
