Justin Bieber was arrested for DUI early Thursday morning and it wasn't pretty -- cops say Justin was wasted and resisted arrest and cussed the cop out, dropping multiple F  bombs ... TMZ has learned.

Justin posed for a smiley mug shot moments after the arrest -- while sporting a jail-issued orange jumpsuit.

0123-bieber-arrested-02Law enforcement tells us ... Bieber was busted in Miami Beach and it didn't end with DUI ... he was also busted for resisting arrest without violence, drag racing and driving on an expired license.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they believe Justin was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.

We're told ... Justin blew a .04.  That would not automatically make him a drunk driver -- IF he were 21 or older.  But Justin is 19, and Florida has a zero tolerance for underage drinkers who drive. A BAC higher than .02 is ground for an automatic license suspension. 

In fact, officials held a news conference and said, "[Justin] made statements he had consumed some alcohol, been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication."

According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- cops approached Bieber's car and they instantly realized he reeked of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes.  He had a "stupor" look on his face.

The police report says ... Bieber was defiant from the get-go, yelling at the cops, "Why the f**k are you doing this?"  He also yelled, "What the f**k did I do.  Why did you stop me?"

When the officer tried to perform a routine pat down, Bieber said, "I ain't got no f**king weapons, why do you have to search me?  What the f**k is this about?"  Bieber claimed he wasn't drunk and coming back from recording music.  That's not true, because we knew he was at a club.

Now the basis for the resisting arrest charge -- Before the pat down, as Bieber got out of the car, he "kept going into his pants pocket."  The cop ordered him to put his hands on the vehicle, and Bieber initially complied but soon took his hands off the car, turned and then cussed out the cop. The cop then grabbed Justin by the right arm, Justin pulled his arm away, and said, "What the f**k are you doing?"

The report says Justin was driving between 55 and 60 MPH in a 30 MPH residential area.

012314_bieber_busted_launch_v3Bieber was taken into custody and transported to the police department where his blood alcohol level was tested. Our law enforcement sources say Justin was given a field sobriety test at the scene ... and failed.

His was then taken to jail where he was booked and processed.



We're told Bieber had just left SET nightclub and was driving a yellow Lamborghini at the time cops spotted him in a residential neighborhood.   Our sources say Justin's people actually blocked the street off so Bieber could drag race.

Sources say the person Justin was racing was also arrested.  We're told that driver was Khalil, a well-known rapper on Def Jam Records.  He was in a red Ferrari.

Justin had a passenger in the car -- Chantel Jeffries -- a model, who's dated multiple celebs including an NFL superstar.

The traffic stop was for drag racing and cops determined he was driving under the influence.

The photo (below) is Chantel -- the model who was in Justin's yellow Lambo -- and Justin.  The pic was NOT taken at the time of the arrest.

JUSTIN BIEBER

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL

During Court Appearance

Justin Bieber
made a point of showing off his tattoos and his muscles during his court appearance Thursday in Miami Beach.

Bieber appeared via closed circuit TV as the judge set bond in his DUI/resisting arrest/driving on a suspended license case.

Check out how Bieber rolled up his jumpsuit sleeves.  He let his arms do the talking because he said nothing as the judge set bail at $2,500 ... which we're guessing he can afford.

It's not exactly a capital offense, but Bieber hired the best ... attorney Roy Black, who helped William Kennedy Smith beat the rape rap.  He's also repped Rush Limbaugh and Kelsey Grammer.

Bieber should post bail soon.

This can't be happening. I thought his Mom was praying for him? Isnt that the answer for everything?

She is a serious contender for world's worst parent, along with Dina Lohan. He has been out of control for months.

I would say "don't drop the soap", but lets be honest here, Justin probably drops the soap on a regular basis.

It's about time! Now too bad he's gonna get a slap on the wrist and sent on his way. I'll be shocked if tgis kid doesn't either end up dead or broke within the next five years. Hopefully his mommy has a brain and can talk some sense into this kid.

He's gonna take off to Cali or Canada and never go to trial, you better keep him locked up Florida.

I'm glad it didn't happen in Cali, hopefully they won't kiss his lily white a** and he has to pay for what he did! DUI is bad enough but drag racing is worse, I had a friend who's boyfriend drag raced and the other guy killed someone, he went to prison even though he wasn't the guy who actually killed the person and they weren't drunk. Drag racing is no joke you little punk. You are not above the law.

He's going to find out that his pasty little white ass and his Lil's black asses ain't gonna be worth squat in Miami. The only thing I'm bummed about is that a concrete wall didn't stop him before the law did.

ROFLMAO. Exactly what he's been aiming for. What a way to brighten a person's day. Are the Dweeber's Little Fannies on here saying how everybody should just leave him alone, he's only 19 and not hurting anybody and does so much good stuff, this penny ante bad stuff means nothing? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

oops... funny the article didn't mention "underage." In my state if you get busted for DUI and you aren't 21, you lose your license until you are... and ANY alcohol in your system means you're DUI when you're underage in this state.
