Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber has had his fair share of controversies over the years, but perhaps the biggest and most scandalous one was when he was arrested in 2014 for driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license.

The incident occurred in Miami Beach, Florida, in the early hours of January 23, 2014. Bieber was driving a yellow Lamborghini and racing with his friend, the singer Khalil, who was driving a red Ferrari. They were reportedly speeding at around 60 mph in a 30 mph zone and were pulled over by police.

Bieber failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the police station, where he was given a breathalyzer test. The test showed that Bieber had a blood alcohol level of 0.014, which is below the legal limit of 0.08 in Florida, but he was still charged with DUI. He also resisted arrest and was charged with resisting without violence. Furthermore, he was charged with driving with an expired license, which he had allegedly obtained while under the influence of marijuana.

The incident caused a media frenzy, with many criticizing Bieber for his reckless behavior and sense of entitlement. Fans were shocked and disappointed, and many began to question the singer's role model status. The controversy also led to a surge in interest in the topic of driving under the influence and its dangers, especially among young people.

Bieber eventually pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to probation, community service, and a fine. He also had to attend an anger management course and make a $50,000 donation to a children's charity.

The incident was not the first controversy that Bieber had been involved in, nor would it be the last. He had previously been accused of vandalism, assault, and even drug use. However, the DUI arrest was perhaps the most serious and damaging of all the controversies that he had faced.

Despite the controversy, Bieber has continued to be one of the biggest pop stars in the world, and his fans have remained loyal to him. He has also become more introspective and mature in recent years, opening up about his struggles with mental health and addiction. Nevertheless, the DUI arrest will always be a part of Bieber's legacy and a reminder of the dangers of reckless behavior.
