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.

I once saw Quinton Tarentino at a coffee shop. He seemed like a nice guy. He got into a little red car and drove off. It was something my mom would drive.

My point: don't drive a car like that if you're trying to avoid attention. It's like when William ****ner walks around in one of those big mexican hats while he thinks he's disguising himself.

I noticed that the Council man did not say that the paparazzi should be in jail too. They were just as dangerous. Are we waiting for them to kill another person like Princess Di before we control and regulate them

Also TMZ encourages the paparazzi.

I agree with the lawyer when he stated the councilman is just looking for a headline. If he was an officer for 18 years then why make the statement that he would cuff him put him in jail and strip him of driving, when he knows darn well 80mph isnt even reckless driving.

California and New York should make laws that prohibit paparazzi from chasing people in cars. Someone is going to get killed.

I'm sure he's supporting his parents so they are not going to doing anything to stop the golden goose. He should have his licence taken away from him if he was being chased by the PAP's he should have pulled over and called the Police you don't speed up that's what happen with Lady Di and where is she now.

His parents must be so proud of this little brat but then again who knows. He is going to end up in a box, 6 feet under if he keeps this up.
