MIGUEL has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).

The 'Beautiful' hitmaker was pulled over by police in Los Angeles for speeding in the early hours of Thursday morning (15.08.13) and officers performed a series of field sobriety tests after noticing a smell of alcohol, according to TMZ.

The 27-year-old singer - whose real name is Miguel Jontel Pimentel - was released on $5,000 bail and is set to appear in court at the end of September.

Miguel last hit the headlines in June when he accidentally kicked a fan during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards.

The singer-songwriter leaped from one stage to another while singing 'Adorn' and caught his leg on the back of Khyati Shah's head, slamming it into the platform.

While it had been claimed Miguel was warned the jump was too dangerous to attempt, his spokeswoman denied this.

Speaking after the incident, she said: "The reports claiming that Miguel was warned by producers not to jump are completely false.

"A number of attempts were made to reach Khyati and her lawyer after the performance to see how she was doing and whether any assistance could be offered. Khyati's well being has been and continues to be of the utmost concern to Miguel."
