A sober-looking Justin Bieber was released from jail Thursday following his arrest on charges of driving under the influence, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest. Police say they stopped the 19-year-old pop star while he was drag-racing down a Miami Beach street before dawn, The Associated Press reports.
Bieber was arrested after police said they saw him heading down a residential street in Miami Beach in a yellow Lamborghini at twice the speed limit. Officers say he had an expired license, was initially not cooperative when he was pulled over and smelled of alcohol.
Police say Bieber later admitted that he had been drinking, smoking marijuana and taking prescription medication. R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff was arrested in the same incident. He is charged with driving under the influence. Police said Khalil was driving a Ferrari.
Bieber and Khalil, wearing bright red jail fatigues, made their initial court appearance via a video link from jail. They remained silent while defense attorney Roy Black negotiated bond. Bieber's bond was set at $2,500. Khalil's bond was set at $1,000.
Black, a high-profile lawyer whose clients have included Rush Limbaugh and William Kennedy Smith, said he thought the case would proceed "hopefully as any other case would" in light of Bieber's celebrity status.
Authorities say Bieber was arrested after police saw him and Khalil racing two luxury vehicles down the street at 4:09 a.m., with two other vehicles apparently being used to block off the area. Police say Bieber was clocked at 55 mph to 60 mph in a 30 mph zone.
Earlier Thursday, police chief Ray Martinez said at a news conference that the singer was initially not cooperative when the officer pulled him over. Martinez said the singer also had an invalid Georgia driver's license and admitted to smoking marijuana, taking prescription medication and drinking.
According to the arrest report, Bieber "had slow deliberate movements" and a look of stupor on his face when the officer ordered him to exit his vehicle. Bieber was placed under arrest after repeatedly refusing to put his hands on his vehicle so the officer could pat him down to look for weapons, the report said. It says he cursed several times at the officer and demanded to know why he was being arrested.
Bieber failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the Miami Beach police station for a Breathalyzer, police said. Results haven't been released.
His publicist, Melissa Victor, did not offer an immediate comment.
Colin Jost will take Seth Meyers' place at the Weekend Update desk for "Saturday Night Live" when Meyers leaves the show to begin hosting "Late Night," Variety reports.
Jost, who is also the show's head writer, will join Cecily Strong beginning March 1. He has been on the writing staff at "SNL" since 2005, and head writer since 2012.
Their biggest hit was "Love Will Keep Us Together," but '70s singing duo the Captain & Tennille are getting a divorce.
Toni Tennille, whose real name is Cathryn Antoinette Tennille, 73, filed for divorce on Jan. 16, the Prescott, Ariz., City courthouse confirms to People.
Daryl Dragon, 71, also known as the Captain, was a keyboard player for the Beach Boys before meeting his wife. They released their first album in 1974, winning a Grammy the following year.
Tennille revealed on her blog in 2010 that Dragon was suffering from a neurological condition similar to Parkinson's that causes him to have tremors, which she said were "pretty severe at times" and interfered with his ability to play the keyboard.
The couple have no children. RumorFix was the first to report the couple's divorce.
"Murder, She Wrote" will not be getting a reboot at NBC, and at least one person is happy about that: Angela Lansbury.
The veteran actress starred in the original "Murder, She Wrote" for 12 seasons and more than 200 episodes. She told the BBC she was "terribly pleased and relieved" to hear NBC isn't going forward with the new version of "Murder, She Wrote" starring Octavia Spencer.
"I knew it was a terrible mistake," she said. "I didn't want to sully the memory."
Lansbury was outspoken about NBC's plans to revive the "Murder, She Wrote" brand. The planned reboot had Oscar winner Spencer attached to star as an amateur sleuth, and, according to Deadline, Lansbury was in talks to also have some kind of presence on the proposed series.
"Octavia Spencer is a superb actress," Lansbury told the BBC. "She had no business being put into a situation that she couldn't win."
Lansbury was nominated for numerous Emmys for playing J.B. Fletcher from 1984-96.
Tori Spelling's husband, Dean McDermott, has entered rehab, his publicist, Jill Fritzo, confirmed Thursday, the AP reports.
The 47-year-old actor said he's being treated for "some health and personal issues." He said in a statement to People magazine that he's "truly sorry for the mistakes I have made and for the pain I've caused my family."
Spelling, 40, is an actress, author and reality star. The couple have four children. He has a son from a previous marriage.
