Justin Bieber

L.A. Councilman Says

Arrest His Ass!

7/6/2012 1:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

So sick of these arrogant, punky little Hollywood celebrities thinking they are entitled. I agree with Crankymaddog..the rest of us would have been locked up. How the hell did he get away with this???!! That's right...write him a ticket that is pocket change to him for putting the rest of us on the road in danger. Yep, that really taught him not to do it again. Disgusting!!

I don't get why so many people like this kid. He's such an arrogant, spoiled little boy. He did not care who he put in jeopardy on that freeway. He felt entitled to drive that way. I agree with the councilman...lock him up!! That's what would have happened if any of us did it.

Lesson learned: Be careful what you wish for. Isn't Justin the kid who put himself on social media seeking fame? He's driving a chrome Fisker and upset that paparazzi was on his tail, priceless. When his testicles drop, I hope he learns to act like a man; instead of a kid needlessly endangering other lives.

I don't like this rotten kid - never did.

Paparazzi is to blame for chasing him. It's time for laws to restrict their stalking activities.

Bieber's car is illegal. Who was paid off to allow this reflective vehicle on public streets? Reflections of the sun when it's close to the horizon will blind other drivers going in all directions.

Poetic justice: car will blind oncoming driver who will crash into Bieber and his car, taking them both out permanently.

He just annoys me. He did from the start. I will leave it at that.

Like celebrities are the only humans on the planet who speed lol not -___-

Give him a ticket and get the heck over it. Justin shouldn't be driving that fast, so he deserves a ticket. This wouldn't be such a big deal if you didn't know him as "Justin Bieber". People speed every day. He got caught.

"Wow! He's so bad! Bad Bieber. What a brat!"

How about a normal person trying to get away from some annoying a** paps. Everyone makes freaking mistakes and nobody's perfect. Including Bieber.

REMEMBER PRINCESS DIANA. Something needs to be done with the paparazzi also. Justin need to remember that he does not have the right to put every one else in danger.

How is it "ironic" that Dennis Zine was a LAPD motor cop and is now a City councilman? I think it's more "coincidental". Buy a dictionary, you hacks!
