One Direction Runs Red Lights While Outrunning Aussie Fans! Officials Investigate, But 1D Rep Says They Had Police Escort!

One Direction must have been listening to a little Miley Cyrus while cruising around in Australia. Because they apparently can't stop at red lights!

When the 1D boys arrived in Perth this week, they found themselves in hot pursuit by their fans! In order to outrun them, the One Direction entourage sped from the airport to the hotel, ignoring 3 red lights along the way!

Dangerous!

Local police soon found out about this wild ride and are now looking into whether One Direction should be charged with breaking the law!

Western Australia Assistant Commissioner Nick Anticich spoke out about the allegations, saying:

"It's unacceptable behavior. It breaches the law and we will deal with every person in the same way. By virtue of the fact that they are rock stars is not a license to break any laws or be any different from anyone else. One Direction they may be, but the only direction in relation to this type offending will be to the courts!"

ZOMG!

We doubt Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall or Zayn were the ones behind the wheels of the Mercedes vans that were whizzing them through town. But still, the boys should know better than to drive like that!

Tisk, tisk, 1D!

UPDATE: One Direction's rep issued this statement in response…

"The primary focus of the security team is always fan safety.

Despite earlier reports that the band's convoy of 3 Mercedes vans had ignored sets of red traffic lights on Great Eastern Highway while en route to the hotel, it was actually a five-car convoy of Hyundai vans, the convoy stopped so that One Direction’s security team could ask fans to obey road rules after becoming concerned about their dangerous driving which ended in two fans running red lights.

I can confirm that they did indeed pull over at a petrol station, where upon they spoke to the fans explaining concerns about their safety and dangerous driving.

The band’s head driver, five-strong security team and tour manager all reiterated the same thing – fans were driving erratically as the band tried to get from Perth airport to their hotel.

the only time they have gone through red lights is under a police escort and this was done in Adelaide."

    Re: tom – I'm pretty sure that's the entire appeal of any celebrity, they're "attractive" and "desirable" because of their fame (and money) even though some are physically attractive while others are not.

    I hope the boys are managing their money well. history has shown, that peak fame doesn't last very long.

    they ran red lights in New York City as well, and literally did 60mph out of their hotel..guess no one investigated that one

    I cannot believe this is being reported on. What would a police dispatcher say to someone calling them and saying "Yeah Police? I saw someone run a red light. I know who they are and can give you their name!"

    I am sure the response would be something like "Oh dear! Well, we can't have that! We definitely need to look into that, but right now we have a cat stuck in a tree and all of our resources are tied up with that at the moment!"

    Seriously, the Australian Law Enforcement must be utterly incompetent if they rely on phone calls from witnesses about people running red lights. And then for it to be big enough for some "Assistant Commissioner" (whatever that is) to attack One Direction (who are probably helping that area out a lot by coming to play there) and talk about them not being above the law and not being treated as special.

    Well, all I can say is, unless the police investigate the many calls they get when people report others running red lights, then yes, One Direction is being treated differently…they are being treated far worse than if they were some random citizen.

    If I were them, I simply wouldn't go back to perform there again.

    some people are so ignorant. there were 10-15 fans waiting at the airport to meet the boys and them and their security had absolutely no intention of stopping for them because let's be honest, they care about the money in australia, not the fans. to avoid fans and the 7 or so cars who decided to follow them to their hotel they sped, they went through red lights, they even stopped dead in the middle of the road nearly causing a smash to stop any cars from continuing down their path. all of which could have been avoided if they had stopped for a few minutes to meet the handful of fans waiting for them. they are fucking ridiculous and so is their security. they're just pissed because australia named and shamed them and their security guards on our national news. come to oz, follow their rules or fuck right off and don't take their money.

    Maybe police should investigate why they DIDN'T provide them escort and stop any fans chasing them?? This happened near 2am. If they ran lights its likely they saw no traffic coming and had two bad choices, one run light even though no cars at intersection or two stop and then have chasing cars pull up next to them or block them and then have fans running out of cars on a road and mobbing them and hope no one gets run over. Funny how some think its ok to chase them in their cars just because they didn't sign autographs. Like you think they will sign them if you chase them in cars?
