The 'Baby' hitmaker - who posted $2,500 bail shortly after appearing at a court hearing in Miami, Florida yesterday, after he was charged with drink driving, resisting arrest and drag racing in the early hours of the morning - jumped on top of a black SUV to wave to fans upon leaving the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Centre before making his way to the airport.

A source told gossip website RadarOnline that the 19-year-old star has a prior commitment in California that he needs to attend to and chartered a private plane to get there.

The Canadian star was arrested in Miami Beach yesterday morning after being stopped for allegedly drag racing in a rented yellow Lamborghini and soon after he failed a sobriety test, was accused of disobeying officer's orders and was found to have an expired licence.

If found guilty of all the charges, the teenager could face up to six months in jail, 50 hours of community service, have his driving privileges suspended for some time and be forced to pay several fines.

Meanwhile, Justin, who cried his eyes out after appearing in court in an orange prison jumpsuit despite smiling in a mugshot, allegedly told police officers that his mother supplied him with prescription drugs.

The singer, who admitted to smoking marijuana and drinking beer before getting behind the wheel, claimed his mother Pattie Mallette also gave him anti-anxiety medication, according to TMZ.com.

Pattie and Justin's father Jeremy Bieber, who was reportedly with Justin at the time of his arrest, split when the star was 10 months old and have yet to comment on the incident.
