"Justin Bieber arrested" is a top search for Beliebers today after news of his arrest for drag racing and DUI in Miami Beach spread on Twitter on Jan. 23, 2014.

Apparently accusations by Bieber's Los Angeles neighbors that the singer damaged homes by throwing eggs at them isn't enough trouble for the Canadian-born singer.

According to NBC Miami, Bieber was arrested early on Thursday morning after being stopped in his rented Lamborghini.

Miami Police confirmed on Twitter that the singer was taken into custody for both drag racing the rented luxury car and suspicion of DUI.

The pop star has been in Miami for the past few days, most recently posting a photo of himself on Instagram in a Miami Beach skate shop.

The latest trouble for Justin Bieber comes just days after the Opa-locka Police Department began investigating an unauthorized police escort of the music star after he landed on his plane at the Opa-locka Executive Airport earlier in the week. Two officers are involved and the incident is being investigated.

Opa-locka Police spokesman David Chiverton told NBC, “Police departments have off-duty, they have escort services ... to accommodate dignitaries or anybody who [desires] or needs that type of service ... this was un-authorized."

Will Justin Bieber be deported back to Canada? It depends on the charges. Think Progress writes that if Bieber, who is in the U.S. on an O-1 visa, is convicted on felony charges due to the egg-throwing incident, there's a small chance he could be deported. This is due to a 1996 federal immigration law that makes felony convictions a deportable offense.

It is not clear the newest charges of drag racing and a possible DUI would be enough to deport him back to Canada. Speculation in the media is high that he will not have to return at this time, especially because he has a highly paid team of lawyers that will prevent that from happening.

It is not know at this time if Justin Bieber is being held in a Miami jail for his DUI and drag racing charges.
