Justin Bieber’s all about his family, even when he’s getting arrested.

According to TMZ, Justin’s dad, Jeremy Bieber, was on hand early this morning (January 23) when his 19-year-old son got taken in by the Miami Beach Police Department. And he wasn’t there because the 38-year-old wanted to intervene. In fact, TMZ reports Jeremy actually helped block off a residential street so his son could drag race, one of the many charges Justin’s now facing.

Jeremy was also spotted with Justin earlier in the day, a day Justin admitted to cops he spent smoking weed and drinking, not exactly how we like to hang with our parents...

There are also photos from January 22 of Jeremy and Justin on the beach with Khalil, the 19-year-old R&B singer who was arrested alongside the Biebs. Too bad those vacation photos will now forever be tinged with the memory of Justin’s first arrest and subsequent mug shot.

Jeremy has yet to publicly comment on his son’s run in with the law. His last tweet, sent January 22, simply says “Miami.” Other than that, Jeremy is keeping quiet on all things Justin just like his son’s manager and mother, Pattie Mallette. Pattie and Jeremy never married but have stayed close while raising Justin.

What do you make of the photos showing Jeremy spending the day with Justin? Think he knew what was up? Tell us in the comments below.
