Teen pop star Justin Bieber was spotted enjoying a beach holiday in Panama on Saturday (January 25) just two days after his tumultuous life off-stage landed him in jail in Florida.
Bieber was arrested on Thursday for drunk driving after he was caught drag racing on a main Miami Beach street in a rented Lamborghini.
The 19-year-old Canadian initially resisted arrest, cursed at police officers and later told them he had consumed alcohol, pot and prescription drugs, police said. Then, changing his demeanour, he grew cooperative and even smiled for his mug shot, coiffed hair perfectly in place.
A judge set bail at $2,500 and released the "Boyfriend" singer. If convicted, Bieber could face jail time of up to six months, although experts say he will likely get off with a lighter sentence for his first offence.
Bieber's arrest is his most serious run-in with the law during a year in which his problems have ranged from allegations of speeding through his gated community near Los Angeles to a felony investigation into whether he pelted a neighbour's house with eggs.
