Reports: Justin Bieber arrested in Miami

Posted: Updated:
MIAMI, FL (WNEM) -

Police have identified the person who was arrested with pop singer Justin Bieber for alleged drag-racing on a Miami Beach street as an R&B singer known as Khalil.

Police confirmed the arrest in a tweet from the department's official account Thursday morning.

According to police, Bieber was driving a Lamborghini and Khalil was driving a Ferrari.

Police say the pair will be taken for a first appearance at a Miami-Dade County jail.

Sgt. Bobby Hernandez says Bieber failed a field sobriety test. Bieber and Khalil both face drag-racing and driving under the influence charges.

He is already facing trouble in California, accused of vandalizing a neighbor's house and causing $20,000 in damage. 

Officials have said that detectives in California recently searched Bieber's home looking for surveillance footage that might serve as evidence the pop star was involved in an egg-tossing vandalism case that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a neighbor's home.

In that case, authorities arrested one member of Bieber's entourage on suspicion of drug possession.

He has not been formally charged in that case.
