Justin Bieber has finally lost his swag. Selena Gomez's ex-beau was arrested in Miami early this morning for drag racing and suspicion of driving under the influence.

According to the Huffington Post, the 19-year-old was arrested in Miami Beach after being stopped in a residential neighborhood after he left a nightclub. He was given a field sobriety test and failed. He was taken into custody around 4 a.m on Pine Tree Drive and 26th, according to a local news station.

Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told The Miami Herald that Bieber was incoherent, kept his hands in his pockets, and resisted arrest without violence. He also told the paper that tests showed that the pop star was under the influence of drugs. 

The former boyfriend of Selena Gomez was driving a rented Lamborghini at the time. Photos were taken of the vehicles and later posted to Twitter.

“Kid needs help,” police spokesperson Bobby Hernandez reportedly told The Miami New Times. He also said that the pop star’s entourage blocked traffic in the area so the singer could drag race his vehicle down the block.
