MIAMI — Justin Bieber claimed after a sobriety test in Florida that he was suffering from a hairline fracture in his right foot and made condescending comments to officers, according to a Miami Beach police document released Tuesday.

The police summary of Bieber's performance on various sobriety tests following his Jan. 23 arrest shows that the pop singer told officers he had injured his foot skateboarding three months earlier. The officer had noted that Bieber appeared to sway and have leg tremors during one of the tests, and also winced as if in pain.

"He appeared to have great difficulty,'' the report noted.

Bieber, who has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence and other charges, also told officers he was not drag racing in a rented Lamborghini along with R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff, who was driving a Ferrari when both were stopped. Bieber, who turned 20 on March 1, questioned why he was arrested in the first place.

The report describes Bieber as initially "agitated and condescending'' and using frequent profanity when brought to the police station.

"He then got upset and said, 'I'm 19 years old. I'm just out having a good time,''' the report quoted him as saying. "What were you doing when you were 19?''

The officer replied that he was not driving around in a Lamborghini at that age.

"Yeah, well, I bet you didn't have millions of dollars in your bank account either,'' Bieber was quoted in reply.

The singer told officers that black Cadillac Escalade SUVs following the two sports cars were carrying security personnel and that the group was trying to avoid celebrity photographers who were tailing them.

The officer mentioned to another officer that it appeared Bieber and Sharieff were having difficulty driving the high-end cars.

Bieber was quoted as saying, "What? I've been driving Lamborghinis since I was 15.''

Police drug tests found the presence of the active ingredient in marijuana and Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug. Traces of alcohol were also detected with a breath test, but the level was below the 0.02 threshold considered intoxicated for drivers under age 21.

Bieber faces a May 5 trial date.
