On Thursday morning, Mickey Arana crashed into a police car injuring two officers. According to The Miami Herald, the officers were taken to Baptist West and Kendall Regional hospitals with back and head injuries. "Thankfully, both of our officers involved in the crash earlier this morning have been discharged from the hospital and continue to recover at home," the Miami-Dade Police tweeted.
Arana, 32, is the head of security for Justin Bieber.
According to the police report, the bodyguard "was speeding in a Chevrolet Tahoe on Kendall Drive at about 2:30 a.m. when he crashed into the police cruiser near Southwest 152nd Avenue. Arana sped away and drove over a median before another pair of officers stopped him at 157th Avenue."
Michael is a Miami native who lives near the crash area. According to the police report he "admitted to police that he had been drinking." Police also said that, "he had crumpled drink receipts in his jean pockets showing that he closed his tab a little after midnight."

According to The Miami Herald, Michael has had two previous run-ins with the law in Miami-Dade — two disorderly conduct arrests in 2007 and 2013. In both cases the charges were eventually dismissed.
By Thursday afternoon he bonded out of jail.
His client, Justin Bieber, has had some trouble with the law himself. The singer was charged with vandalism in 2013 after spray-painting graffiti in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and again in 2014 for egging his neighbors house. The 23-year-old was arrested for a DUI while drag racing in 2014.
