Bieber: Sooo (not) bad!

Mere days after news broke that Los Angeles cops chose not to arrest Justin Bieber after finding oodles and noodles of marijuana and pills at his house, the kid goes and gets himself busted.

Police in Miami Beach on Thursday morning arrested Bieber, 19, and charged him with DUI, resisting arrest without violence, drag racing, and driving (a Lamborghini!) with an expired license.

(A Philly connection: Reports say that at the time of the arrest, the little Bieby was with Chantel Jeffries, ex-gf of Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson!) Also arrested, Bieber pal + soulish singer Khalil, who was piloting a Ferrari. Prior to the bust, Khalil posted an Instagram pic with the caption, "Miami nights ridin thru yo city in that hot wheel." Yo, yo yo. What- ever.

When Bieber was pulled over, he cussed out the arresting officer. He failed a sobriety test and was arrested. Miami Beach police chief Raymond Martinez tells the Miami Herald that Bieber admitted he had ingested pot, booze, and prescription pills.

Reportedly, Bieber had himself a driving adventure in the wee hours, drag racing on a stretch of road blocked off by his posse's flash cars. The Bieb don't drive in traffic, yo.

Bieber Public Enemy No. 1!

Bieber, who is still under suspicion for allegedly throwing lots and lots of eggs at a neighbor's house in L.A., may be in trouble for yet another Florida escapade.

Police in Opa-Locka, in the Miami area, are investigating reports that the singer and his pals were given a police escort while going out on the town, including a trip to a strip club.

He's no Robert Mitchum

Every time Hollywood kiddies like Bieber or Lindsay Lohan misbehave, I think of that classic news photo from 1948 showing Robert Mitchum walking away, cool as a cuke, from a jail cell after being busted for pot. (See it in Kenneth Anger's masterpiece, Hollywood Babylon.) Hard as they try, today's poseurs can't but do that: pose. Sad, really.

Quentin T says no! No! No!

Toasted and roasted wherever he goes, Quentin Tarantino makes headlines with every new film. Just last weekend, there was buzz by Golden Globes news buzzards that he had completed a screenplay for a Western called The Hateful Eight. The script was leaked. And T (allegedly) had a fit. Tarantino, 50, tells that he won't make the pic after all.

"I give it out to six people," he says, "and if I can't trust them to that degree, then I have no desire to make it."

Captain & Tennille split up

The husband-and-wife musical legends Captain & Tennille are no more!

People mag says Cathryn Antoinette "Toni" Tennille has filed papers in an Arizona court to divorce Daryl Dragon. She's 74; he's 71. Who gets divorced at that age?
