As we've mentioned, Scotland's Mogwai released their eighth album, Rave Tapes, earlier this week, and it was also just announced that the Scottish post-rock greats will be playing Coachella this year. That's big news from the Mogwai camp, but they're not done yet -- Mogwai's channeling their heritage and putting out a limited edition Scotch, RockAct81w, named for the next available slot in the Rock Action catalogue. RockAct81w is being produced at the Glenallachie Distillery, which is in Speyside, so expect something with a lighter profile, possibly grassy or sweet. Only 324 bottles are being made, and it will be available on January 28 for £55.

In other booze-related news, big stuff out of South Florida today as Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami this morning and charged with drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license when police saw Biebs street racing in a residential area of Miami Beach. Bieber was in a tasteful yellow (banana?) Lamborghini, his opponent a red Ferrari. They were doing 55-60mph in a 30. Despite a litany of legal woes, this is Bieber's first arrest.

Some details from CNN, quoting Miami Police Chief Raymond Martinez:

The officer pulled Bieber's car over, but the singer was "was not cooperating with the officer's instructions," Martinez said.

"At first, he was a little belligerent, using some choice words questioning why he was being stopped and why the officer was even questioning him," he said.

"When he opened up the window and confronted Mr. Bieber, he smelled a strong odor of alcoholic beverage," Martinez said. The officer believed "Bieber may have been impaired."

Bieber failed his sobriety test. Martinez told reporters that Bieber "made some statements that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication." According to the arrest report, when pulled over, Bieber asked "Why did you stop me?" and when the arresting officer asked Bieber to exit the vehicle, Bieber asked "Why the fuck are you doing this?" You can read the whole report, with a lot more "What the fuck"s and an "I ain't got no fucking weapons" over at Gawker and video of the arrest is below (via TMZ)

CNN notes that two SUVs blocked the road so Bieber could race, bringing to mind a potential Bieber Fast and Furious casting. South Florida police are also investigating a report that police officers escorted Bieber's caravan between strip clubs in Miami over the weekend without authorization. Back in LA, LA police executed a felony search warrant on Bieber's house, seizing Bieber's iPhone and security camera system in an investigation into who threw eggs at Bieber's neighbor's house. Somehow, the eggs did $20k in damage.

Read about more of Bieber's legal troubles over at CNN, including the one where a neighbor accused Bieber of spitting in his face.

The nadir of brooklynvegan? Reporting on Justin Bieber DUI? Huh. I thought this was a music website for consenting adults.

Does he realize he looking/following the exact trajectory of Vanilla Ice?

I'm going to be laughing in 5 years when this kid is on some bullshit talking about how he almost pulled the trigger if it wasn't for his homeboy God. This shit's so predictable it's not really worth talking about.

He's lucky all he got was a DUI when they could have popped him for that coke they found in his house a few weeks ago

JB's heading down Lindsey Lohan highway. Pills then Crack/Meth - complete meltdown in 1-2 years.

So predictable.

Why does Bieber think he's black?

Posted by Anonymous | January 23, 2014 1:28 PM

he was racing but only doing 55 mph?

getting arrested for "drag racing" a Lamborghini while going 55-60 is as pathetic as holding up a bank and making off with $3.

You ever try to egg off of anything? It's a fucking nightmare, you pretty much have to re-paint.

neighbor's house is probably very expensive too, so while egging your house or apartment might only cause like $10 in damage, it could cost much more on some California mansion, and if any windows broke, forget about it

Speyside whiskeys are great, better than Highlands or Islay in my opinion. Never really associated Mogwai with whiskey, but seems like a cool idea, considering they're Scottish.

***IMPORTANT*** Why is BV covering Justin Beiber stories?

Posted by Anonymous | January 23, 2014 3:03 PM

This is some serious weakass gangster wannabe shit. I can see his publicist saying getting arrested would help toughen up the ol' image (think boy miley). So he gets arrested racing his Lamborghini at double nickels and popped in civil court for what, egging!?? Time for a new publicist.

Yeah Justin sucks and I hope he drops off the face of the earth. Yeah this site has sunken even lower by reporting on this

Having said all that, did you guys check out pictures of the bitch he was with and currently fucking. Check out the Post which has tons of her instagram pictures. Mama Looey that is one of the sexiest hottest girls I have ever seen.

That's the prize you get when you make that kind of cash.

now you all wish there was more HAIM coverage instead of the Biebs. Too bad, too late. You just had to complain about real music played by real musicians, and now this is all you will get for it.

He also cannot drive anywhere in the United States or elsewhere without a valid drivers license and is likely to be barred from applying for a drivers license in the State of California as a result of this DUI arrest in Florida. He is also highly likely to have the automobile insurance here in California terminated on his vehicles for not having a valid drivers license as we have a crosschecking system here in California that will trigger that.

Take me somewhere nice.. :)

35 minutes in and I'm still listening to it has to be a bad sign for what's to come. haha Now I wouldn't fly a radio controlled helicopter to it, but it's nice so far to bleed emotion away. It's what music should be. Produced, not over-produced. Plus my cat is named Mogwai. Seriously. Search for "18 minutes of my cat in slow motion." on youtube or just click my picture icon or name to take you to my page. It's my most recent upload to date. My earlier uploads are all music. Me playing every instrument, etc. I'm actually going to start recording now that I have my home studio coming back together better than ever this time around and you'll see my Mogwaii!

How can these girls be so stupid? Justin bieber doesn't care about you, he only cares about your parents' money.
