Singer Justin Bieber was arrested early Thursday and charged with drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest in Miami Beach, police said.

The incident happened around 4 a.m. in the area of Pine Tree Drive and West 26th Street, Miami Beach Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez said.

Bieber, who was in a rented Lamborghini, was pulled over in the area along with another car, police said. Bieber's car was being trailed by multiple SUVs when officers gave chase, police sources told NBC 6 South Florida.

He was driving north on Pine Tree Drive at such a high rate of speed it took officers a significant distance to catch him, police said.
