Pop star Justin Bieber says he was “unhappy, angry and misled” seven years ago, when he was arrested for drunk driving. Looking back at his arrest in 2014 for Driving Under Influence (DUI) in Miami, the singer said he is not proud of the person he was at that time.

“7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood and angry at god,” he wrote alongside a picture of his arrest.

“I also wore too much leather for someone in Miami,” he quipped. The “Sorry” hitmaker advised his fans to keep faith in God and treat their past as a learning experience. “All this to say God has brought me a long way. From then til now I do realize something.. God was as close to me then as he is right now. My encouragement to you is to ‘let your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you.

“Don’t allow shame to ruin your “today” let the forgiveness of Jesus take over and watch your life blossom into all that God has designed you to be.”

Bieber, 26, was arrested in 2014 for drag racing a yellow Lamborghini on a Miami street and failing a sobriety test. He was charged with resisting arrest, driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.

The singer didn’t have to serve jail time by pleading guilty to reckless driving, making a charitable donation and taking anger management classes.
