Miguel was arrested on a DUI charge very early this morning in Los Angeles, TMZ reports. The 27-year-old Grammy-winning singer was nabbed by police for speeding in his 2013 BMW X6 and for tinted windows next to an L.A. freeway around 2:15 a.m. Miguel, whose full name is Miguel Jontel Pimentel, smelled of booze and was given field sobriety tests, which he failed.

Miguel also failed a breathalyzer, blowing a 0.10 and 0.11 BAC – over California’s legal limit of 0.8. After he was taken in and booked, Miguel was released a few hours later on $5,000 bail. He has a court date for the charge in September.
