Justin Bieber was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and drag racing Thursday morning a police spokesman in Miami Beach, Florida, said.

Bieber was driving a yellow Lamborghini that police saw drag racing a Ferrari in a residential area of Miami Beach.

The pop star showed “signs of impairment” and failed a field sobriety test according to spokesman Bobby Hernandez.

The Ferrari’s driver, whom Hernandez called “an associate of Bieber,” was also arrested on a drunken driving charge.

After his arrest, Bieber admitted to consuming alcohol and prescription medications and smoking marijuana, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez said via NBC 6.

Bieber was going between 55-60 in a 30 mph area.

Bieber is still being investigated for an egg incident to his next door neighbor which caused $20,000 in damages.
