Justin Bieber is known for his smooth moves and vocal pipes, but the pint-sized popstar wasn't looking too good on Jan. 23, when officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department arrested him for DUI and drag racing.
According to the police's DUI test report that was just released, which chronicled the 19-year-old's arrest and field sobriety tests, the "Believe" singer struggled to complete the tests properly. Here's what we learned from the report (See the full report here):
1. He smelled like reefer. According to the arresting officer, "While en route to the station, I noticed the strong odor of marijuana coming from the back seat of my vehicle. At one point, I told the defendant that he reeked of marijuana. Defendant stated, 'Yeah, we were smoking all night at the studio.'"
2. Do I have to take the breathalyzer? Bieber was asked to use an Intoxilyzer, the machine used to measure his level of intoxication. At first he wasn't so sure about it. According to the report, "the defendant asked several questions about what would happen to his license if he changed his mind and refused to take the test."
3. This breath test is so complicated. "Defendant was told not to touch or grab the hose. Defendant continually attempted to grab the hose throughout the testing process. Defendant could not blow continuously for more than a couple of seconds."
4. Unlike the Big Bad Wolf, he couldn't blow the house down. "Defendant advised that he was blowing as hard as he could, and told me to look at how red his face was. Another 3 minutes eventually passed with no valid breath sample." After cops explained that this was a very simple test and they believed he was purposely not doing it correctly, Biebs got agitated and countered "that he was blowing into the hose like he blows into his trumpet." Eventually, he blew a 0.08 and 0.078.
5. What meds? When the officer asked if Bieber had taken any medications he replied "that he did, but did not know what specific medications. Defendant explained that he took medications for anxiety." When officers asked how he didn't know what meds he was on he replied, "Well, my mom takes care of all that stuff for me." (He tested positive for Xanax.)
6. Who knew he had a torn meniscus? During his Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST), the "Believe" singer told officers that his "right knee had a torn meniscus."
7. He can dance, but he can't walk and turn. The standard test recorded that Bieber "loses balance during instructions, starts before told to do so, doesn't touch heel to toe, steps off line one or two times, raises one or both arms six or more inches to maintain balance, does not turn correctly or loses balance during turn." He didn't fare any better on the one-leg stand test. Yikes.
8. Eye check and attitude fail. The Biebs could not smoothly follow a moving object with either eye. The report also recorded his attitude as "excited, talkative, profanity, cooperative, insulting, and cocky. Unfortunately, the box for "polite" was left unchecked.
9. Sometimes you have to pee in a cup — not a custodian bucket. "Defendant was later given a drug influence evaluation and he provided a urine sample."
10. He suffered from a case of dry mouth. "Defendant had a dry mouth during my interaction with him. Defendant repeatedly asked for water. After the breath test, I bought defendant a bottle of water from a nearby vending machine."
11. Khalil fared a little better. Bieber's buddy was noted as "cooperative" on his report and was able to complete his walking and turning tests with better results, only swaying a little bit and stopping momentarily to catch his balance.
So there you have it, folks. It looks like The Biebs was not feeling so #confident on that fateful day. Apparently, he is now, though:
