Justin Bieber's tumultuous life off-stage landed him in jail for the first time on Thursday when police arrested the singer for drunk driving after he was caught drag racing on a main Miami Beach street in a rented Lamborghini, Reuters reports.
CNN obtained a new footage from surveillance cameras of the drag race on Friday that led to the Canadian teen pop star’s arrest.

The 19-year-old Canadian initially resisted arrest, cursed at police officers and later told them he had consumed alcohol, pot and prescription drugs, police said. Then, changing his demeanor, he grew cooperative and even smiled for his mug shot, coiffed hair perfectly in place.
A judge set bail at $2,500 and released the "Boyfriend" singer. If convicted, Bieber could face jail time of up to six months, although experts say he will likely get off with a lighter sentence for his first offense, according to Reuters.
Soon after his arrest, news reports started emerging that Bieber's run-ins with the law could get him kicked out of the U.S. after a petition on the official White House website was created, aiming to garner 100,000 signatures to send the singer back to his native country.
Following news of Bieber’s deportation, a Canadian comedian took to YouTube and appealed to the American people on behalf of his country to keep the pop sensation in the U.S. for good.
