R&B artist Miguel is in a lot of legal trouble -- and it's not for kicking a fan in the head. 

The singer behind hits "Adorn" and "#Beautiful" with Mariah Carey was arrested for driving while drunk in Los Angeles early Thursday (August 15), TMZ reports. Law enforcement sources say that California Highway Patrol officers pulled the 27-year-old over for speeding and tinted windows around 2:15 a.m., but then noticed that Miguel smelled like alcohol. 

Officers then performed various sobriety tests, all of which he failed. Miguel -- full name Miguel Jontel Pimentel -- took a breathalyzer and blew a .10 and .11 (which is over the .08 legal limit in Calif.). 

Miguel was taken to a nearby station where he was booked and released a few hours later on $5,000 bail. He's scheduled to appear in court in September. »
