Just hours earlier the 19-year-old tweeted a picture of himself leaning against the car. He also posted a picture of a female friend driving the Lamborghini, but the images have since been deleted from his account.

But Khalil still has this image on his Instagram page, taken hours earlier.

Justin has been spotted around Miami in the last few days, at a skatepark and enjoying a ride on a Segway.

This arrest is Bieber's latest brush with the law. He was recently accused of causing thousands of dollars of damage by throwing eggs at a neighbor's home in Los Angeles.
