Sounds like the Biebs got himself into some BIG trouble today!
While Justin Bieber didn’t get into a physical altercation with the paparazzi (this time!), his incident today DID still involve some pesky paps!
Reportedly, Justin was racing down the 101 Freeway in El Lay — at speeds over 100mph — as he attempted to escape the photogs who were trailing him!
The witness who called 911 on JB for going to fast and too furious? L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine…who was also an LAPD motor officer for 18 years!
"Bieber was driving like a maniac. He was weaving in and out of traffic. There was hardly any space between cars as he weaved from lane to lane. If I was on patrol, I would have arrested him for reckless driving. I was going 60 and he drove by me like he was in a rocket ship. He was a maniac."
Definitely not very safe, Bieber!
Zine didn’t put the blame solely on Justin, however, saying how the paps were “incredibly irresponsible” as well, and were an extreme hazard on the road!
The councilman reports that at least 4 paparazzi were swarmed around Justin's car when he was eventually pulled over!!
As for Bieber’s team? Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun said:
“[Zine] is just a councilman looking for a headline."
Justin was cited for going 80 mph and even after he was ticketed, the paps STILL chased him down, prompting him to call 911.
Officials are currently investigating the paparazzi for causing what could possibly have been an EXTREMELY dangerous situation!
Wow, we are glad this incident didn't take a turn for the worst!
Add Bieby to the list of celebs who should hire themselves a driver…or at least buy a less recognizable car!
