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.

It's just a matter of time before this spoiled brat is just another splat on the statistic board of life. Unfortunately, he will probably take others with him.

He should have his ass locked up for reckless driving, driving to endanger, speeding, etc. If the paps are behind you and you're in your car, how are they possibly going to "get" you anyway. Speed kills Biebs.......and you're a moron for risking not only your life but the lives of others.

This situation reminds me when Princess Diana was killed. Justin Bieber needs to be reminded of that day when the paparazi was chasing the car that she was in and the results were not good.

Justin did put alot of people in harms way as well as himself, Miley and everyone else.

But a Ford Fiesta you little twerp. If you don't want the Paparazzi bastards to find you, but a less conspicuos vehicle. Your mom should have swallowed.

The damn paparazzi's are to blame. The paps were following after justin bieber and, what do you want justin to do? let the paps smash in his car. I dont think so. The freakin' paps should end up in jail cause they are so disrespectful and everything.

The Part I love about all this? He's a SPOKESMODEL for SAFE DRIVING. It's Amazing the stuff he can get away with because of who he is. A NORMAL teenager would be stripped of their license for getting pulled over as many times as he has for reckless driving! If he were caught doing this in some place like New Orleans. NOPD would've had that **** locked up before he can say OPPS!

Maybe Justin was just confused when he say the 101 Freeway sign he may have thought it was the speed limit. He is just a young man from Canada and may know know all the California signs a laws yet, ya know. It wasn't his fault if he had to keep passing cars that weren't doing what he thought was the speed limit, eh

Leave it to Beaver! If he doesn't want to be a target he shouldn't be driving around in that retarded looking chrome car.
