The recent news of Justin Bieber's arrest in Miami for allegedly driving while under the influence and drag racing didn't, sadly, come as much of a surprise. The pop star has been frequently acting erratically – and perhaps illegally – for the better part of a year now. We tracked the lowest of the low moments.

February 2014: Flying High

Apparently people deal with flying anxiety in all sorts of ways: During a flight from Canada to New Jersey, Bieber and his father, Jeremy, allegedly ignored a pilot's request to stop smoking marijuana. A source told CNN that flight crew members donned oxygen masks because they didn't want to be test positive for drugs upon landing. With reported antics like this, maybe Bieber wants to be deported.
