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."

Just because he wasn't drunk doesn't mean he couldn't have failed a sobriety test...weed, pills etc were probably all factors....None the less he will probably skate on this now....

It don't matter if he was drunk or not that makes it even worse you had not one beer but in your mind you was still ballsy enough to shut down an entire street to drag race atleast he could say that he was under the influence and drinking and driving is wrong when he spins the story but not now. Smh

Though it hurts their case that the BAC wasn't as high as first reported, he is still.

1. Underage and can not legally drink
2. Was drag racing
3. Caused his handlers to act in a dangerous way
4. Resisted arrest which gives the police the right...
5. To place him under arrest and legally search him..
6. Was found to have non-prescribed drugs on him

There is a reason why you should keep your month shut when getting pull over by a cop. Don't admit anything!

Does it really matter when he ADMITTED drinking beer, smoking weed and taking Rx meds before driving?? There's plenty of ways to impair one's driving besides alcohol.

How is a 0.14 next to nothing? Come on TMZ that double legal limit.

Reports this morning, 1-24, say that the legal limit in Florida for alchohol in a minor is .02, so if he was actually .04 he's still in trouble there. .08 only applies to over 21. Didn't see where TMZ "confirmed" that he was .014.

This doesn't surprise me at all. His problem is, he stupidly told the cops he was on Xanax. If they took blood and it's in his system, it unfortunately won't help him. NEVER talk to the cops people!!!! Let them take you to jail and talk to your attorney. If they didn't take his blood to test for Xanax (or pee) he will get off. Roy Black will tear this case up. Sorry haters. Hopefully he will learn from this though and reconsider his direction on this earth. You only get to walk the earth one time Justin!!

He admitted to being high, that's driving under the influence (trust me personally I went through this) so he threw himself under the bus. Also whether he was drink or not the bottom line is he's underage he broke the law he needs to Pay for it so quit trying to defend him TMZ
