Justin Bieber

Cops May Have Fudged Police Report

EXCLUSIVE

0124-bieber-car-01
There may be a gigantic hole in the case against Justin Bieber ... because we've now learned the singer had next to NO alcohol in his system yet cops at the scene said he reeked of alcohol.   

We have now confirmed Justin's actual blood alcohol level ... it was .014 -- next to nothing.  Legal intoxication is .08.  Law enforcement sources told TMZ Thursday Bieber had a .04 ...  but we've now confirmed that is NOT true.  He had a .014 -- an enormous difference.

Someone Justin's size would probably have higher than a .014 with a single beer.  So the question ... how could cops say they were overpowered by the smell of alcohol?

According to the police report ... the arresting officer was leaning into the car, talking to Justin just after the stop and the cop says, "I immediately smelled an odor of alcohol eminating [sic] from the driver's breath."

The police report goes on ... Justin was then arrested and taken to a holding facility, where another officer said he smelled "... the odor of an alc bev on his breath."

Justin insisted at the scene he was NOT drunk.  Cops say he failed his field sobriety test.

Sources connected to the case tell us ... this could well come down to a credibility case, with Justin's people accusing cops of lying.  Fact is ... the Miami Beach PD has had credibility issues in the past.  One law enforcement source confided in us ... "That police force has had a zillion problems."

That's a NON STARTER Harvey... There was alcohol and drugs - so to say there was no impairment or no smell of alcohol will be a disasterous defense. The best chance he has is with the cops saying he was driving over the speed limit (they did not have radar) so that is an opinion...not a fact. Beib lawyer can say the Lambo looks fast and sounds fast so the cops thought he was speeding. Suppress the stop and the whole case is dismissed.

Doesn't matter what his alcohol content was/is. He is still under the legal age to consume alcohol. Drag racing, speeding? Still chargable offenses. Resisting arrest? Chargable offense. It's the classic "smear campaign" by his camp in an attempt to discredit the police department. It is a proven "fact" that if a breathalizer is administered at the scene at the time of the stop the alcohol content is a higher reading than if the suspect refuses the breathalizer and is transported to the station and a breathalizer is later administered. There is a time factor that allows the body to breakdown the alcohol content within. If you watch the video footage you first posted of the initial stop where Mr. Bieber was first administered his field sobriety tests, you can clearly see that he is unstable on his feet as you can see him weaving back and forth while standing still. Someone who is NOT under the influence does not do this unless they have a diagnosed medical condition. Enough with the coverups... the kid needs help. If his parents gave a crap about him they would see that he got it. He is headed down a road they don't want to be on.

The hole in that is Bieber confessed to drinking beer. It's not just that the police smelled it. Justin told them he had drank some beer, been smoking weed all day and took prescription medicine that he feigned not knowing what it was. #CelebrityJustice

The legal limit for a minor is 0.0 in Miami. Since the officer leaned into Bieber's car to talk to him, it's possible that he could have smelled a strong odor, not just from him, but from his passenger as well. I have a very sensitive nose and I can smell one beer on someone's breath.

Also, Bieber CONFESSED to drinking, smoking and taking drugs. He also FAILED the field sobriety test.

The alcohol smell was enough to ask him to get out of the car and the confession was definitely enough to arrest him.

Regardless of the Miami PD's credibility issues, that was definitely enough to arrest your average person. However, since this is Justin Bieber, his lawyer will try and get him a pass.

Getting the book thrown at him would be the best possible thing for Bieber. He believes he can do whatever he wants and that attitude will get either him or some innocent person hurt or killed.

Regardless of his BAC, he was still committing about 5 crimes at the time of his arrest. Unfortunately, ANYTHING that draws question to the validity of the police report can cause all charges to be dropped (even stuff he's obviously guilty of). Although, it might be that the cops did smell an odor of alcohol even if he wasn't drunk. He had a passenger, didn't he? Or alcohol could have been spilled on him.

Well it level would have been lower due to the time from the stop to the blood test.. Also being on RX drugs and Weed can still give you a DUI..

He shouldnt have ANY alcohol he is under 21. Also if he had a beer earlier in the night then his breath could very well smell of beer. Cops can pick stuff up like that real quick. Plus he admitted he smoked pot and took pills so where exactly is this gigantic hole?
