Justin Bieber’s DUI arrest earlier this week tainted his seemingly choirboy image as photos of his “smug shot” popped up on the Web. The 19-year-old "Baby" singer was hauled off to jail by Miami police for driving while intoxicated and drag racing on a Miami Beach street.

According to the police report, Bieber was also driving with an expired license and resisting arrest. His bail was set at $2500, which he paid and waved to fans as he left the police station. As Daily Mail reports (Jan. 25), Bieber fled to Punta Chame, Panama to apparently take a break from all the frenzy of his recent troubles.

New pictures of the young Canadian pop star in Panama surfaced on Twitter Saturday, posted by one of Justin Bieber's fan accounts. In one of the photos posted by @JBCrewdotcom, Bieber is spotted in the company of 21-year-old Miami model Chantel Jeffries sunbathing on the beach. Another set of photos shows Bieber with friends and a bodyguard walking along the beach.

Bieber and a blonde companion (likely Jeffries) reportedly left Bieber’s Miami mansion Friday night to head off to Central America. Photos of the two arriving at the airport in Panama were also leaked, likely taken early Saturday morning. “Just arrived in Hartford. Slight delay leaving panama due to justin Bieber arriving by surprise. Paparazzi, JB is hiding out in Panama!!,” according to a tweet from user @RobertMenegoni at 4:45 AM EST Saturday.
