MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Singer Justin Bieber was arrested early Thursday for drag racing and DUI in Miami Beach, police said.

He made his first appearance in court at around 1 p.m. Thursday. A judge set Bieber's bond at $2,500 -- $1,000 each for charges of DUI and resisting arrest, and $500 for driving on an expired license.

The incident happened at around 4 a.m. in the area of Pine Tree Drive and West 26th Street, Miami Beach Police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez said.

Bieber, 19, was in a rented Lamborghini. He was pulled over along with another car. Bieber's car was being trailed by multiple SUVs when officers gave chase. He was driving north on Pine Tree Drive as such a high rate of speed it took police a significant distance to catch him.

Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez said Bieber was "a little belligerent" with officers at the scene, questioning why he was stopped. After his arrest, Bieber admitted to consuming alcohol and prescription medications and smoking marijuana, Martinez said.

The officer who made the arrest said the cars were going approximately 55-60 mph in a 30 mph zone, Martinez said.

Bieber failed a sobriety test at the scene and was taken into custody, Hernandez said. The other driver, identified by police as rapper Khalil, was also arrested. No one was injured.

The teen pop star was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail Thursday morning.

Bieber has been spotted in different places around Miami Beach the past few days, including a skate shop in a photo posted on Instagram.

The Opa-locka Police Department is also investigating an unauthorized escort of Bieber, a police spokesman said Wednesday.

The arrest is the latest brush with the law for Bieber. A neighbor in his Los Angeles neighborhood accused the singer of causing thousands of dollars of damage by throwing eggs at his home, leading detectives to raid Bieber's mansion in search of evidence. One person at the house was arrested on suspicion of drug possession.

In July, officials at the U.S.-Canada border seized marijuana and drug paraphernalia from one of the singer's tour buses. Bieber was not on that bus at the time.
