Justin Bieber Chantel Jeffries

Before Justin Bieber was arrested for driving under the influence in the early morning hours on Thursday, he posted snaps of himself cruising around with a beautiful young woman. The pretty model is underground internet sensation Chantel Jeffries, 21, who was arrested in 2011 for excessive speeding.

Hours before the 19-year-old pop sensation is believed to have begun drag racing in Miami Beach, the Instagram model tweeted: ‘Something about the shock factor.’

Earlier in the evening Bieber tweeted a snap of Chantel behind the wheel of the Lamborghini he was later arrested in, with the caption: ‘@chanteljeffries taking me for a ride in the lambo.’

But the Baby singer soon deleted the memento just prior to his arrest for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol at 4.30am on Thursday. RadarOnline claims the model was herself previously arrested in North Carolina in 2011, according to a police report.
