Justin Bieber Breaks Twitter, Instagram Silence Following Arrest
One day after Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach, the 19-year-old pop star returned to both Twitter and Instagram on Friday (Jan. 24). Bieber posted an Instagram image that included a photo of himself waving from atop a car as he left the Florida police facility side-by-side with a 2004 photo of Michael Jackson atop a car with his hand upraised in a peace sign outside a California court after Jackson plead not guilty to child molestation charges. Bieber captioned the double-image, "What more can they say."
Later on Friday, Bieber posted a message on Twitter for the first time since his Thursday arrest on suspicion of DUI after allegedly drag racing, tweeting, in part, "BE STRONG GOD IS WITH US ALL" (caps his). His also thanked fans in the tweet, writing, "MY BELIEBERS CHANGED MY LIFE> I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL."
YOU ARE ALL WORTHY NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS >> BE STRONG GOD IS WITH US ALL> MY BELIEBERS CHANGED MY LIFE> I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) January 24, 2014
Aside from the DUI charge, Bieber was also charged with resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. He was released Thursday on $2,500 bail. Doubt was raised about the DUI component of the charges against Bieber when TMZ reported Bieber's blood alcohol level was a mere .014 at the time of arrest, far below the legal limit of .08.
