Justin Bieber is free after spending less than 24 hours in a Miami, Florida, jail.

The 19-year-old stayed silent while sporting handcuffs and an orange jumpsuit earlier on Thursday as he stood in front of a judge who set his bond at $2,500.

The solemn pop star seemed quite different from the one portrayed hours earlier in a police report detailing his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence and drag racing.

"I ain’t got no f***ing weapons. Why do you have to search me. What’s this all about?" Bieber said right before being placed in cuffs shortly after 4 a.m. ET Thursday, according to his arrest report.

Bieber was quickly escorted out of the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami, Florida, to an awaiting vehicle right after 2 p.m. ET. He managed a brief smile and a wave for the large crowd that had gathered outside the facility. Many snapped pictures on their phones and shouted "I love you" as the singer pulled away.

Bieber was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest without violence and driving with an invalid driver's license. He admitted to officers that he had been drinking alcohol, using marijuana and had taken prescription drugs, according to Miami Police Chief Raymond Martinez.

Because Bieber was arrested for DUI, he had to be held in jail for at least eight hours to sober up, according to the Miami-Dade County Department of Corrections.

Bieber was busted in Miami Beach, while drag racing in a yellow Lamborghini, according to his arrest report, which is riddled with F-bombs (and embedded at the bottom of this story).

The officer who stopped Bieber said in the report that he "immediately smelled an odor of alcohol emanating from the driver's breath and bloodshot eyes. The driver had slow and deliberate movements and a stupor look on his face. These are all indicators of an impaired driver."

When the officer asked Bieber to exit the vehicle, the star allegedly said, "Why the f*** are you doing this?" Bieber kept turning around to face the officer as he was being patted down, according to the report, so the officer decided to place him under arrest.

"The driver began to resist me by pulling his right arm away as he stated, 'What the f*** are you doing.'"

The driver of the other vehicle involved in the incident -- which was a red Ferrari -- has also been taken into custody and identified as Khalil Sharieff. Sharieff also appeared before the judge Thursday and had his bond set at $1,000 for a DUI charge.

We've also learned police in Opa-locka, Florida, have launched an investigation into why officers allegedly gave Bieber a police escort to a strip club. That's according to the city manager who stressed that this was unauthorized and the higher-ups knew nothing about it.

Bieber's rep has told HLN no comment for now.

The singer has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons in the past year.

On New Year's Day last year, a photographer was killed crossing the street after taking pictures of Beiber's Ferrari. Then in April, Bieber was criticized after visiting the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam, for saying he hoped Anne would have been a "Belieber.”

In May, Bieber infuriated his neighbors with his allegedly reckless driving in his Ferrari. Then in October, the Twitterverse couldn't believe the sight of Bieber's bodyguards carrying him up the stairs at the Great Wall of China.

And just last week, sheriff's deputies searched his home after eggs were thrown at a neighbor's house.
