According to TMZ, Bieber, who is only 19 years old, was taken into police custody, where officers reportedly tested him to get a precise measurement of his blood alcohol level.

The Miami Beach Police Department has actually been all over the story on Twitter — Tweeting the Biebs' mugshot at him. Quite the grin. 

They've also Tweeted out his arrest report. Biebs was going 55-60 mph in a 30 mph zone, and dropped multiple 'f' bombs at police.

This arrest is just the latest in a string of Bieber's run-ins with the law, and it has his family and friends worried.

Bieber's mother told the The Sun Wednesday she prays for her son every day and asked his fans to do the same during "these trying times."

Back in November Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, told The Hollywood Reporter he was worried about Bieber, saying he's "usually up pretty much all night until I know Justin is in." 

Braun also said he was ​"prepared for what may come" with the morning news. Hopefully that's true in this case as well.
