UPDATED 8:16 AM -- Police have identified the person who was arrested with pop singer Justin Bieber for alleged drag-racing on a Miami Beach street as an R&B singer known as Khalil.

Police confirmed the arrest in a tweet from the department's official account Thursday morning.

According to police, Bieber was driving a Lamborghini and Khalil was driving a Ferrari.

Police say the pair will be taken for a first appearance at a Miami-Dade County jail.

Sgt. Bobby Hernandez says Bieber failed a field sobriety test. Bieber and Khalil both face drag-racing and driving under the influence charges.


MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Police say pop singer Justin Bieber has been arrested after drag racing on a Miami Beach street in a yellow Lamborghini and failing a sobriety test.

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 to race. He says the second car was a red Ferrari, and that driver was also arrested. Both cars were towed.

Hernandez says 19-year-old 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.

Recently in California, detectives searched Bieber's home for evidence he might have been involved in egg-tossing vandalism at a neighbor's home.
