OPA-LOCKA, Fla. (CBSMiami/AP) —An official says three Opa Locka Police officers were suspended for giving Justin Bieber an unauthorized escort from the airport earlier this week.

Opa-locka Assistant City Manager David Chiverton said Friday that the officers were suspended with pay pending the outcome of an investigation.

Police escorts from the Opa-locka Executive Airport are not uncommon, but they must follow procedure. Chiverton says the one that accompanied Bieber on Monday had not been authorized.

According to Chiverton, investigators are still trying to get more information from the airport and the officers about where police escorted Bieber.

Bieber was free on bail Friday after an arrest on charges of DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest. Miami Beach police say Bieber smelled of alcohol when he was stopped after drag-racing down a residential street early Thursday.
