Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Justin blew a .04.  That would not automatically make him a drunk driver -- IF he were 21 or older.  But Justin is 19, and Florida has a zero tolerance for underage drinkers who drive ... and if he blows higher than a .02 it's an automatic license suspension.  

Remember, he was arrested for DUI for both drugs and alcohol.  If booze and drugs impaired his driving -- even if it was just a sip of liquor -- he can be convicted of DUI.

The police report says ... Bieber was defiant from the get go, yelling at the cops, "Why the f**k are you doing this?  He also yelled, "What the f**k did I do.  Why did you stop me?"

When the officer tried to perform a routine pat down, Bieber said, "I ain't got no f**king weapons, why do you have to search me?  What the f**k is this about?"

TMZ reports the resisting arrest charge stems from Bieber refusing to take his hands out of his pockets when ordered to do so by cops.

The arrest occurred early Thursday morning.    

According to TMZ, Bieber is now in custody and is at the police department where he is being tested -- presumably to more precisely measure his blood alcohol level.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Justin was given a field sobriety test at the scene ... and failed. 

His next stop will be jail, where he will be booked and processed and bail will be set.

TMZ reports Bieber had just left SET nightclub and was driving a yellow Lamborghini at the time cops spotted him in a residential neighborhood.   Sources tell TMZ Justin's people actually blocked the street off so Bieber could drag race.

Sources also say the person Justin was racing was also arrested.  TMZ reports that the driver was Khalil, a well-known rapper on Def Jam Records.  He was in a red Ferrari.

According to TMZ, Justin had a passenger in the car -- a model.

The traffic stop was for drag racing and cops determined he was driving under the influence.

There was a photo of Chantel riding in the lambo with Bieber on Instagram, but it's since been removed, even though the pic was NOT taken at the time of the arrest. 


Miami's WiOD obtained audio of Miami Beach Police Detective Vivian Hernandez confirmed the news this morning and is reporting live updates. Listen below:
