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.

hmm, interesting!! Dennis Zine says "a car chase is going on", there ya go, case closed!! Even if Justin Bieber was speeding trying to get away from the paps, there was no reason for the paparazzi to have to keep up with him! and by Zine saying "car chase" what more needs to be said? can we move on now already!!

Beiber was the person in control of the situation. If he sped up, they would speed up. If he slowed down, they would have slowed down. If he stopped, they would have stopped. Beiber made an extremely dangerous decision by teasing them by speeding thinking his car could out run them. If the cops let him off, he's learned no lesson and will set a poor example to all the young girls that follow him.

The paps made him rich and famous; he couldn't kve made it without them. He was speeding so they could not take pictures. How lame an excuse is that? More likely he was just so taken by his speeding and feeling like he was a Nascar driver.

Justin called 911 after he was first ticketed around 10:45 a.m. indicates that at least three photographers were still hounding him. Papz should be charged with stalking. This is why Alec Boldwin smacks up papz when they get up on his face... Best part was when Alec called the papz a little girl lmao... Priceless @ 1:29 ~ >here is the link

It is easy to say that someone is doing over 100MPH just because they passed you going fast. Unless you have a radar on them you cannot tell and I don't care if you are an ex cop or civilian it is impossible. So Mr. Zine if you say he was doing over 100MPH you must have been cruising near that speed also. Your 15 minutes are over give it up.

He's a 'n inexperienced kid. He either needs to take an evasive driving course or leave the driving for others. As for the chase cars....well those guys need the book thrown at them!
