Every now and then, the world reminds us that it's still got our backs and does us a solid: Legendary brat and all-around trainwreck has capped off his no good, very bad, terrible, awful month in epic fashion and gone and gotten himself arrested. I'll give you a moment to absorb that, maybe run around your house laughing like a maniac, slide across the floor on your knees, fists raised in a triumphant "V". I know. I needed some time, too.
According to Miami police, Bieber was arrested early Thursday morning after - get this - leaving a nightclub, and then making his entourage block off a residential street in Miami at 4 a.m. so he could drag race his yellow Lamborghini. So we can add that to the ever-growing list of incidents that proves Justin Bieber has absolutely no regard for anyone.
Worse, when he was pulled over, he completely bombed the field sobriety test, with police stating he hurled obscenities at the arresting officer before admitting he had alcohol, pot, and prescription drugs in his system (to the surprise of no one), and was more or less incoherent during his arrest. So you can add a DUI to his list of criminal f*ck-ups this week.
Looks like someone has stolen the King of the Trainwreck Mountain crown from Lindsay Lohan.
Since this is a first-degree misdemeanor, Bieber could face up to six months in jail and have his license revoked for six months, as we--wait, what's that? Bieber was also driving with an expired license? Even better! Tack that onto the count.
Unfortunately, he may be eligible for a first-time offenders' program that downgrades the charge to simple reckless driving. However, as it happened in Florida, which has a zero tolerance policy for underage drinkers, Bieber would have to enter a program that demands he steer clear of all alcohol and drugs. In a way, this could be a blessing in disguise. It's become increasingly clear in recent months that his behavior has spun far out of control, and drugs and alcohol have largely been to blame (along with his sketchy-as-hell entourage, but I digress). Perhaps this will be the wake-up call Bieber needs to boot him back into being a decent human being able to control himself.
But judging from the fact he's all smiles in his booking photo, I doubt that.
