It's been more than 24 hours now since Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami on suspicion of DUI and drag racing charges. And yet, people are still going crazy over it. The hashtags #WeWillAlwaysSupportYouJustin and #DeportBieber are both trending on Twitter at the moment. TMZ is covering Bieber's arrest from every possible angle. And even the sports world is taking the scandalous story and running with it.
How? Well, those within the sports world are doing it in all kinds of ways. Shortly after Bieber got busted yesterday, two of his Calabasas, Calif. neighbors Keyshawn Johnson and Eric Dickerson responded to his arrest on Twitter. Johnson wrote this:
They finally caught HIM! Glad no one was hurt, no kids in the street. Everyone grows up at some point. Hopefully he learns from it.— Keyshawn Johnson (@Thromedamnball) January 23, 2014
While Dickerson wrote this:
It's about time! Nobody's above the law!— Eric Dickerson (@EricDickerson) January 23, 2014
Then, last night, there were several more Bieber sightings in the sports world. In Texas, the Dallas Stars used Bieber's mugshot to troll the Toronto Maple Leafs midway through a game against them:
in Pennsylvania, a couple Penn State basketball fans scribbled "FREE BIEBER" on a piece of cardboard during a game against Nebraska and held it up for everyone watching the game on ESPNU to see:

And the Bieber arrest story even made an impact out at the NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii. Chantel Jeffries—the woman who was in the car with Bieber just before he got arrested—used to date Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. So reporters got a hold of Jackson at the Pro Bowl to ask him his thoughts on Bieber's arrest, and he had this to say:
DeSean Jackson -- I Don't Pay Attention to Bieber ... Or My Ex-GF http://t.co/3tnPU3iinA— TMZ Sports (@TMZ_Sports) January 24, 2014
So it's official. Everyone is now talking about this Justin Bieber story, including people on Twitter, TMZ, and even some of our favorite athletes and sports teams. So forget #FreeBieber. How about #FreeUsFromBieber?
