Miami Police have confirmed that pop singer Justin Bieber will be taken to Miami-Dade County jail soon, following his arrest on suspicion of drag racing and drink-driving.
Police have also named the other arrested person as an R&B singer known as Khalil. The pair will be taken to a first appearance at Miami-Dade County jail to face driving under the influence and drag racing charges.
Both Bieber's yellow Lamborghini and Khalil's red Ferrari were towed away according to the Miami Police.
Miami Beach Police Department announced Canadian pop star Justin Bieber's arrest on twitter earlier today, with police officers claiming they saw two cars racing in the early hours of the morning, at 4:09am local time.
Bieber allegedly failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the Miami Beach police station for a breath test according to reports.
Miami Police spokesman, Sergeant Bobby Hernandez, said two vehicles had seemingly been used to block off an area for the drag race, with Bieber in a yellow Lamborghini. Another driver involved in the race in a red Ferrari was also arrested.
Drivers who get behind the wheel drunk risk losing more than their licence, the Government has warned.
The Government is urging drivers to consider the "snowball effect" of a drink driving conviction ahead of the Christmas party season, as part of their latest THINK! campaign.
People who drive as part of their job would be particularly at risk if they were caught drunk behind the wheel, as they would be denied access to millions of jobs which use criminal record checks to assess potential employees.
These jobs include professional driving jobs, teachers, care workers and jobs in banks and finance.
Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill has also asked the UK transport secretary for the transfer of powers in areas such as random testing and tougher measures for young drivers:
This government welcomes having the power to set the drink-drive limit but the Scotland Act was a missed opportunity.
The very limited transfer of powers did not go far enough.
We wanted a package to be devolved that would allow us to consider whether the police should be able to carry out breath testing drivers anytime, anywhere, and powers to consider changing the penalties for drink-driving.
We also called for the chance to consider differential drink-driving limits. For example, for young and novice drivers.
None of these were devolved by the UK government and I have written to the Secretary of State for Transport calling for the UK government to reconsider.
Labour's Lewis MacDonald has welcomed the proposal to reduce the limit but said it could potentially have resource implications at a time of cuts to police backroom staff.
"I am not, in principle, opposed to the further devolution of more powers in this area but I am concerned to see the legislation come forward using the powers that are devolved already in order for that to provide the basis to go forwards," he said.
Mr MacDonald praised the former Labour government at Westminster for commissioning Sir Peter North's independent review of the law on drink and drug driving.
"Random testing, for example, was one of the North recommendations that he was able to elucidate strong evidence for," he said.
"I think some of the other issues raised are less evidence-based but I don't think the priority at this stage is the debate around those powers.
"The priority is to ensure that the powers that we have are implemented effectively."
