L.A. Councilman's 911 Call

Justin Bieber & Paps

Are 'Driving Like MANIACS'

EXCLUSIVE

0712_dennis_zine_justin_bieber_911_call_article_2
TMZ has obtained the urgent 911 call placed by L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine -- moments after Justin Bieber blew past him on the 101 Freeway last Friday in his sports car  ... allegedly breaking the 100mph barrier.

During the call, Zine tells the operator there's "a crazy chase going down" -- with 5 or 6 vehicles led by "a silver car" ... "cutting off cars" and "weaving in and out" of traffic at breakneck speeds.

Zine says they're "driving like maniacs."

Zine previously told us Bieber was going at least 100mph on the freeway -- but on the 911 tape, Zine says Bieber's going around 90.

You'll recall, Bieber was being chased by paparazzi as he flew down the freeway, weaving from lane to lane. Zine -- a former LAPD motor cop -- told us if he were on patrol he would have arrested the singer for reckless endangerment.

The CHP responded to Zine's call and a few miles down the Freeway Justin was stopped and cited for going 80.

One of the paparazzi in the chase is currently being investigated for harassment.

Bottom line, Justin Bieber should not be driving like that. It's not like the paps had any weapons for him to drive like that. He just didn't want his picture taken and felt like it was better to drive crazy and endanger peoples lives. He can drive like that in Canada but not here! Fine him or take him to jail, I don't care. But this should not be tolerated.

The councilman also stated ON YOUR TMZ live, that he was conservative with about the speed of the drivers during his 911 call.. TMZ you MUST think you readers are DUMB and don't listen to what's being said...Sometimes I wonder why I even come back to this site? STOP INSULTING YOUR READERS INTELLIGENCE !

I don't like this little girl, they should lock her up for being so thoughtless about the other people. She should have his licence revoked and put in jail with a 350 lb lesbo. Enough of this nonsense!

Justin shouldn't have been driving like that. Doesn't he know that being followed and chased by the paps comes with the territory. Point blank, he doesn't have the right to put innocent lives at risk. Can anyone imagine if there were a serious accident caused by this?

but what was the kid doing that he felt he had to drive almost a hundred miles an hour to get away? He's a dumb kid. There is NO excuse for that. Stupid brat.

I blame the paparazzi. That kind of following someone who's photographed billions of times already is just way extreme.
