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.

And why should the kid get to call the cops because someone wants to take a picture of him? What justifies the cost of police protection from a pap because they are taking a picture of someone in public?

Bitch please    

I live in LA County and have driven on the 101 alot of times and unless its 1-5am the freeway is always crowded so its highly impossible to do 100 on that freeway unless its really late. Maybe he was on the 2 fwy now that one is never crowded.

Regardless if the paparazzi was after him or not, it's his responsibility to drive safely. Give a child a toy and they will either destroy it or take care of it. He seems to still be a child. If he were arrested, it might and I say might have done him some good, knowing there are consequences to his actions. Another child headed to trouble. Won't be long before we read a headline that will be tragic.

Harvey, nobody chases you if you're not running away from them. This little twit is too good to get his picture taken now, and has to endanger lives to run away from a camera....a camera for christ sake? Justin, a few short years ago, you would have done anything to have a pap even bother taking your pic! Grow up!

Has he not heard of Princess Di? That's not exactly a great game plan to escape having your picture taken. Tell you what Bieber. Give me your money, and Selena, for a year and you can go back to living where no one will give a crap what you are doing. I'm sure there will be some money and some Selena left for you after the year, but not much of either.

here is another example of this stinking s***bag paparazzos chasing a celeb again and almost killing him. WHEN IS A LAW GOING TO GET PASSED PREVENTING THESE JACKOFFS FROM DOING THIS????
start putting big fines on these jackholes and put them in jail for a year minimum, but they are so stupid it probably wouldnt teach them a thing!

Why was Bieber speeding way from the paperazzi, were they chasing him while armed with weapons? What were they going to do when they caught up to him, take his picture? Part of being a celeb in LA is this little gae they play with the paperazzi. When they stop taking your picture that means your career is done. Bieber can go back to Canada any day he likes, there really is no reason for him to be in LA. He likes attention, that's why he drives a one of a kind chrome car, he is saying "look at me, I'm so special" I think people are getting tired of this attention seeking punk

What a douche bag, jeopardizing lives, and for what? Because someone was trying to take his picture. He needs to die before he kills some innocent bystander.
