The 19-year-old was greeted at the station by a frenzy of television crews, news photographers and screaming teenage fans on Wednesday.

He was booked less than a week after being arrested in Florida and accused of drink-driving and other charges, the BBC reports.

Police say Mr Bieber will appear in court at a later date.

Also on Wednesday, a petition requesting Mr Bieber's expulsion from the United States attained 100,000 signatures. The petition was filed on a White House website by a member of the public.

The US president has no power to order an individual's deportation, and it is unclear whether the White House will respond to the petition.
