Justin Bieber Drag Race Arrest: Derailed By GPS Data?

by at . Comments

GPS records from the rented Lamborghini Justin Bieber was driving when he was arrested for DUI show the star may not have been racing after all.

Miami Beach police claimed they noticed Bieber and his friend Khalil (who drove a red Ferrari) drag racing and that's why the guys were stopped.

Cops also say they were driving between 55-60 m.p.h. Both claims may not hold water, however, based on the GPS system inside Justin's ride.

At 4:07 a.m. Justin left the club and zoomed away at a maximum speed of 44 m.p.h. Two minutes later, the GPS registered a max speed of 27.

Police say the race took place on the 2600 block of Pine Tree Drive. Justin Bieber then came to a stop and was then arrested on the 4100 block. 

However, the 27 m.p.h. reading was taken smack in the middle of the supposed drag race ... not exactly racing speed. Also under the speed limit (30).

Police also say that a pair of Cadillac Escalades were stopped on Pine Tree Drive to block traffic so that Bieber and his buddy could drag race.

One of them turned off at 2:35, when Justin's dad Jeremy Bieber (who was in the Escalade) went inside the Miami Beach nightclub with his son. 

They were there until 4:06 a.m., at which point the Escalade started rolling and didn't stop until Justin was arrested. It never stopped for any race.

This is very problematic for the police, because if the entire basis for pulling over Bieber's car proves false, it could derail the case against the singer.

Kid's got more issues than we can even list and clearly needs a reality check, but it looks like the police may have seriously overreached here.
