MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Justin Bieber's mug shot hints at the boy-next-door image he's carefully crafted over the past several years, with a glistening smile and professionally upswept hair.
But the red jail jumpsuit also visible in the photo tells a different story, one about the singer's recent troubles and emergence as a bad boy. The 19-year-old pop star is facing possible jail time after his arrest in Florida on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.
Still, as he has been so many times since achieving stardom at age 15, Bieber was swarmed by crowds of news media and screaming young girls as he left jail Thursday afternoon.
Police said they arrested Bieber after officers saw him drag-racing before dawn Thursday in Miami Beach.
