Pop sensation Justin Bieber, 19, was arrested early Thursday morning in the Miami area for DUI, drag racing and resisting arrest. Of course, this isn’t the first encounter with the law for the teen heartthrob.

Let’s look back at some of his earlier mishaps, shall we?

March 2013 – A neighbor of Bieber’s confronted the pop icon about speeding down the streets in his Ferrari. Bieber allegedly spit in the neighbor’s face in retaliation. He was exonerated of any criminal wrongdoing in October.

Later that month, Bieber would run into trouble with German customs officials, who refused to let his pet monkey into the country due to the lack of necessary documentation. The monkey was never returned to Bieber.

May 2013 – Keyshawn Johnson, a former NFL Wide Receiver who owns a home nearby Bieber, confronted the singer after he caught him speeding while Johnson’s kids were playing outside.

June 2013 — A paparazzo sued Bieber for assaulting him at a mall in Calabasas, Calif.

July 2013 – On July 18 an Ohio DJ named Addison Ulhaq filed a police report pertaining to a spitting incident. Ulhaq claimed Justin Bieber spat in his face inside a nightclub in Columbus. Bieber was not charged.

The spit hit the fan again for Bieber later that month, when he was caught expectorating on a crowd gathered outside his hotel in Toronto, Canada on July 25. Although spitting is considered a criminal offense in some cases in Toronto, Bieber was not charged with anything.

November 2013 – He was questioned by Brazilian police for drawing graffiti on an old hotel wall. Bieber claimed that he had received permission to tag the wall beforehand. Bieber was not formally charged.
He was also caught leaving a brothel in Brazil in that same month, according to the New York Post.

January 2014 – The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. searched Bieber’s house and cell phone while investigating an incident of vandalism that occurred on the night of Jan. 9. Bieber’s neighbor claimed he saw Bieber throwing eggs at his house. Bieber has not been charged, but the investigation is ongoing.
