MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police in Miami Beach say pop singer Justin Bieber has been charged with resisting arrest without violence in addition to drag racing and DUI. Police also say the singer told authorities he had consumed alcohol, smoked marijuana and taken prescription drugs.

Police Chief Ray Martinez told a news conference Thursday morning the singer was initially not cooperative when an officer pulled him over for drag racing. Martinez says the singer also had an invalid Georgia driver's license.

According to police, Bieber was driving a Lamborghini and R&B singer Khalil, who was also arrested, was driving a Ferrari. Both cars were towed.
