Late night comedians have been having a field day ever since everyone's favorite punchline Justin Bieber appeared in Miami court on charges of resisting arrest without violence, drag racing and driving under the influence on Thursday.

Jimmy Kimmel offered a Justin Bieber retrospective, trying to determine when things went so wrong for the cute kid who got into "bag of douche" territory (the answer is summer of 2013). Kimmel also made a prediction of what Bieber will look like in 2018:

Conan O'Brien reenacted Bieber's court appearance:

Jimmy Fallon opened his monologue with a string of Bieber jokes, saying that the singer could face up to two years' penalty of "being his own neighbor":

Jay Leno announced that President Obama has arrested Bieber, America's "number one domestic terrorist." "He is in custody! We don't have to live in fear anymore!" Leno exclaimed, to applause:

Not everyone laughed, however: MSNBC took the news so seriously that the network interrupted Congresswoman Jane Harman, who was talking about NSA reform, to inform Americans of Bieber's court hearing. America, folks!
