Justin Bieber in High-Speed Paparazzi Chase, Cited for Reckless Driving

by at . Comments

Justin Bieber was involved in both a dangerous and illegal situation this afternoon, and it all went down on the 101 in Los Angeles.

As first reported by TMZ, the artist was pulled over for speeding and reckless driving after L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine - a witness and former LAPD patrolman - spotted Justin barreling down the freeway in his Fisker Karma, allegedly over 100 miles per hour.

Zine believes Bieber should have been arrested on the spot.

"Bieber was driving like a maniac," Zine tells TMZ. "He was weaving in and out of traffic. There was hardly any space between cars as he weaved from lane to lane."

HOWEVER, Zine also acknowledges that Bieber had at least somewhat of an excuse for his actions: the paparazzi were right on his (expensive) tail. Four "reporters" swarmed Justin's car as soon as it was pulled over, in fact.

Sources say law enforcement officials will investigate these journalists for creating a hazardous circumstances, while Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, says his client was cited for going 80 mph and actually dialed 911 himself a short time later because the paparazzi picked up their pursuit.

Man. At least Justin and Selena Gomez are doing better these days.

This kid is an accident waiting to happen. If he is stopped soon it will result in something way more serious. He is an angry boy. Think: If he painted his car and tinted windows so Pap cant see him why did he run and speed. Just a rich kid being a brat. How irresponsible to drive like that. I have family and loved ones on those freeways. Kill yourself Justin your choice not up to you to put other people in danger. Not a wise or grown up decision!!

He became famous because he was a shy kid, undersized, with a lot of talent. Now he's a rude,
arrogant kid who thinks he owns the world. I hope his family steps in before he kills himself
doing things like this. Or kills someone else.

Of course he doesn't get arrested; he's famous and gets special treatment. He's a reckless idiot and deserves to be punished.
