Justin Bieber

L.A. Councilman Says

Arrest His Ass!

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber
just got cited for speeding on the freeway, and the witness who called 911 -- who happens to be an L.A. City Councilman -- tells TMZ, Bieber should have been cuffed, locked up, and stripped of his driving privileges.

L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine -- who ironically was an LAPD motor officer for 18 years -- was on the 101 Freeway when he saw Justin in his chrome Fisker Karma roaring down the freeway at speeds that Zine says exceeded 100 mph.

Zine tells us ... Bieber was trying to shake a team of paparazzi (NOT TMZ) that was on his tail. 

Zine says, "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."

Zine says, "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." Zine called in to "TMZ Live" moments ago to explain exactly why he thinks Bieber belongs behind bars.

070612_zine_tmzlive_v2_launchZine also says the paparazzi were incredibly irresponsible, driving on the shoulder of the freeway and causing an extreme hazard. After he was pulled over, at least 4 paps were swarming Bieb's car.

070612_bieber_ticket_v2_launchBieber's manager, Scooter Braun, tells TMZ, Zine "is just a councilman looking for a headline."  Braun says Justin was cited for going 80 mph and he was being chased by the paparazzi. Braun adds a short time after getting ticketed, the paparazzi resumed their pursuit and Justin called 911.

Law enforcement sources tell us, after Bieber called 911, police caught up to his car and pulled him over again ... along with the paparazzi following him. We're told the cops warned the paparazzi to behave themselves, and everyone was sent on their way.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the CHP is investigating the paparazzi for creating a hazardous situation.

Message to Scooter Braun: YOU ARE SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE. Don't try and cover up a wrong with a wrong. 80 MPH is still over the speed limit and accidents happen within a mili-second from being distracted. Justin was JUST as wrong in this case. He should have pulled over, called the police and waited. Don't start giving him a "pass" just because he's your meal ticket. There seems to be warning signs brushed off as "casual incidents" in the news lately concerning the Beiber camp, I suggest as a good manager, you encourage the RIGHT decisions and behavior, instead of making excuses for the bad. We have already banned Miley from our household, don't let Justin be the next. Young children everywhere are watching.

Don't drive a freakin chrome car! Also, so what if the paps r following you? What are they going to do? Take your picture? I know the rich and famous get sick and tired of it, but you signed up for it. It's not worth risking the lives of innocent people by driving crazy down a freeway. Use your stupid little pea brain Bieber!

He's probably too young to remember the lesson of Princess Diana...who was also just trying to escape the Paparazzi. His car should have been impounded, and he should have been arrested. Same for the Paps. They're putting innocent lives at risk.

bieber is not the only one that drives like that most cali people do cause they get away with it... i live in arizona in a city were a lot of cali people like to visit and they all drive fast not only down highways but residential and business areas also... both bieber and the paps are to blame but also you have to blame the police who arent doing there. the only reason he got pulled over was cause it was called in. i bet if a cop actually saw him doing that they would have not done ****.... cali traffice enforcement sucks!!!

I remember reading a story saying that Justin bought himself a $20,000 racing motorcycle that is one of the fastest in the world. That's what every mother with an 18 year old son just loves to hear about isn't it?

If Justin takes that breakneck fast bike that goes 0-60... mph in 2 seconds onto the streets instead of the track where it belongs he's going to end up a greasy spot on the road and a few million teenage girls might have to be brought to the hospital for hyperventilation or maybe even a heart attack. Now would you want that to happen to your fanbase Justin?

You do realize that you aren't going to shake the paps in a CHROME PLATED CAR!! Props for flashiness, but in that car you're saying you want to be seen.
