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.
There is no effective way to estimate the level of alcohol in your blood by counting the units of alcohol you drink, as alcohol is absorbed at different rates depending on factors including: height, weight, tiredness, stress levels, and how much and how recently you have eaten.
