Justin Bieber: Panama Now Refuge After DUI Drag Racing Arrest

By Alexandra Ward   |   Monday, 27 Jan 2014 10:56 AM

After a high-profile DUI arrest last week, Justin Bieber regrouped on a Panama beach over the weekend surrounded by an entourage that included manager Scooter Braun and singer Usher Raymond.

In what some are calling an intervention of sorts, the group was seen at an action sports facility in Panama's Nitro City on Saturday, a source told People magazine, adding that Raymond and Braun were planning to have a "sit down" with the 19-year-old. Bieber's mom Pattie Mallette was also reportedly in attendance.

Raymond, 35, and Braun, 32, have served as Bieber's mentors ever since discovering the Canadian singer through YouTube in 2008.

Bieber was pulled over by Miami Beach police in the early hours of Thursday morning for drag racing his rented Lamborghini and was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence. He later admitted to drinking, smoking marijuana, and taking prescription pills.

He was released Thursday afternoon on $2,500 bail.

The incident was just the latest in a string of recent run-ins with the law. Earlier this month Bieber was accused of trespassing on his neighbor's property and throwing eggs at the home. As part of the investigation, detectives raided the singer's Calabasas, Calif., mansion and reportedly made one drug-related arrest.

In November, Bieber was accused of spraying graffiti in Brazil and last year he was photographed smoking what appeared to be a joint. Neighbors have also previously complained to police about him speeding recklessly through the residential streets of his gated community.

Rumor has it that the singer's hard partying ways are getting the best of him — something insiders hope Raymond and Braun can straighten out.

"While the word intervention has reportedly not been used, the spirit of the meeting is sure to be similar," HollywoodLife.com reported. "It’s not yet clear whether Justin’s mom and the others want him in rehab, or if they just want him to slow his lifestyle down."
