Earlier today, as I’m sure you are WELL aware by now, popstar Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami, FL on charges of drag racing, driving under the influence and resisting arrest (his smug mug shot was released just a short time ago). It is being reported that JB‘s criminal behavior was aided by the influence of his friends and his father Jeremy Bieber. That’s right, folks, Bieber‘s own father was rolling in his entourage last night/this morning and reportedly played a hand in the criminal activities that led to his son’s arrest. According to new details provided by TMZ, Daddy Bieber was among the folks who helped block the streets so Justin could drag race last night/this morning AND he was in Justin‘s close company in the hours leading up to his arrest during which time The Biebs reportedly confessed to police that he smoked marijuana and took prescription drugs. His father, folks. UPDATE: New information suggests that Bieber‘s mother Pattie Mallette might also have played a role in his criminal activity last night as well.
Justin Bieber’s father helped facilitate the insanely stupid moves of his son that landed him in jail … TMZ has learned. Sources familiar with the situation tell us … 38-year-old Jeremy Bieber was not only present when Justin was arrested early Thursday morning … he was one of the people who helped block off the residential street so his son could drag race. It’s even worse … Jeremy was in SET nightclub just before the arrest with Justin and was around him all day, when the self-confessed little pothead was smoking weed. As we reported … Justin admitted that he was under the influence of Rx drugs, alcohol and weed at the time of his arrest … and Justin’s dad was right there in the mix. Unbelievable.
Wow. Unbelievable, indeed. Here is our first look at Bieber‘s arrest report and a photo of Justin being transported to jail after his arrest:
As you can see, 19 year old Justin Drew Bieber isn’t even old enough to legally drink so I guess we can add underage drinking to his list of growing legal woes. In regards to his father’s involvement in all of this, I mean, yeah … it’s just sad. You’d expect Justin‘s friends and hangers-on to enable his bad behavior because they likely want to stay in his good graces so they can continue to enjoy the fruits of being his friend. That his own father would not only enable his son’s dangerously criminal behavior but would also actively participate in aiding his crimes? It’s insane. With a father figure like this endorsing your bad behavior, OF COURSE a young person is going to feel emboldened to do whatever he or she wants. It’s really hard to feel sorry for an entitled young man like Justin Bieber but as we’ve seen with someone like Lindsay Lohan, the influence of terrible parents can have really damaging effects on a young celebrity. It’ll be interesting to hear what Daddy Bieber has to say in the wake of his son’s arrest. It’ll also be interesting to hear from Mama Bieber.
UPDATE: AND SPEAKING OF MAMA BIEBER, TMZ is reporting that SHE was the person that gave Justin the prescription drugs that he was on when he was arrested this morning!!!
Justin Bieber just ratted on one of his drug suppliers to police — telling cops, HIS MOM is the one who gave him the prescription medication he took shortly before his DUI arrest. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, cops grilled Bieber on what substances he had ingested before his arrest … and the singer admitted he was under the influence of Rx meds, alcohol, and weed. When asked what kind of Rx meds, we’re told Bieber said anti-anxiety (such as Xanax) but he wasn’t sure exactly what kind … because he just takes whatever his mom Pattie gives him. It’s unclear if he has his own prescriptions for the drugs — and his mom just handles them — or if he’s using his mom’s prescriptions … which would be illegal. If Bieber does have a valid prescription , the presence of the substance in his system probably won’t be held against him. As we reported, when police raided Bieber’s house following the infamous egg attack, they found Xanax pills in the home … so it all syncs up. As we reported, Bieber also allegedly had a blood alcohol level of .04 … and that will definitely come back to bite him in the ass. We’ve reached out to Bieber’s mom … so far, no comment.
I would like to believe that his mother would NOT give her son illegal prescription drugs so my guess is that there is a valid prescription for Justin somewhere to be found. But it seems really clear to me that neither parent is really doing a great job of looking out for their son’s best interests … for whatever reason. He gets drugs from his mom, he does drugs around his dad … it all adds up to the mess we see today. Sad.
