Miami Dade-Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez tells WSVN in South Florida that officers saw two cars racing at 4:09 a.m. Thursday.

Hernandez says two vehicles apparently had been used to block off an area for the drag race. He says the second car was a red Ferrari, and that driver was also arrested. Both cars were towed.

Hernandez says Bieber failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the Miami Beach police station for a Breathalyzer and processing. Hernandez says Bieber will be transported soon to the Miami-Dade County jail.
