Justin Bieber’s arrest for drag racing and DUI in Miami Beach early this morning all could have been avoided — if he’d listened to those closest to him.
Life & Style has learned friends and family urged the 19-year-old to go to rehab after recent run-ins with the law.
“Scooter [Braun, his manager], rounded up Justin’s security team and several of his friends to stage an intervention,” an insider says in the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now.
“They packed Justin’s bags for him and wanted him to go to rehab in the middle of the night, but Justin flipped out and was adamant about not going.”
The behavior is starting to take a toll on his family.
Justin’s mother, Pattie Mallette, “is fed up with his behavior,” the insider explains to the mag, especially after the Jan. 14 police raid that led to the discovery of numerous drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Even ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez “thinks Justin needs rehab, and she’s felt that way for a long time,” the source adds.
Unfortunately, the raid did not curb his wild behavior.

Days after he left his ‘mark’ in urine on the snow during a trip to Colorado, the pop star was arrested for drag racing a rented Lamborghini under the influence of alcohol and drugs in Miami Beach on Jan. 23.
According to the police report, Justin questioned the officer who pulled him over, saying, “Why did you stop me?”
Once the cop explained he noticed the entertainer had been racing another vehicle and was impaired, Justin said, “Why the f**k are you doing this?”
Upon getting out of the car, he kept going into his pockets and refused to comply with the officer’s orders to keep his hands on the Lamborghini.
“I ain’t go no f**king weapons. Why do you have to search me? What the f**k is this about?” the report claims Justin said.

The “As Long As You Love Me” crooner was transported to the Miami Beach Police Department.
While en route, he questioned why he’d been arrested, and denied he was under the influence.
He ended up failing field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests.
It was later learned he’d also been driving with an expired Georgia State driver’s license, which is an additional charge.
He is now being held at another Miami facility and will appear before a judge sometime today.
