Jan. 23 (UPI) -- At least Justin Bieber wasn't alone when Miami Beach police arrested him for drunk driving and drag racing early Thursday morning. Cops also handcuffed aspiring R&B singer Khalil, 19, who signed with Def Jam Records in 2008.

The last video to appear on his VEVO channel is "Stars," from June of last year.

Shortly before the arrests, Khalil posted an Instagram photo of his hand on the wheel of what appears to be the red Ferrari he was illegally racing.

He also snapped a photo of Bieber behind the wheel of a yellow Lamborghini, which has since been deleted.

"Miami nights ridin thru yo city in that hot wheel," Khalil captioned the snap.

Miami Beach Police, who have been actively tweeting information regarding the incident, shared a copy of Khalil's arrest report Thursday.

In 2012, Khalil released a documentary called Khalil: A Long Story Short, in which he says he's "not too much of a wild guy."

"I'm all about work, I'm all about studio," he said.
