Justin Bieber

Cops May Have Fudged Police Report

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."

The reality of the situation is that if the cops lied. The whole case is at risk, no matter what he did or didn't admit to.

Tmz is lying here...go read the police report again....he didn't say Justine reeked of alcohol..he said he noticed a smell of alcohol....even if Justine just took a sip...the cop could have smelled alcohol and had just cause....TMZ is the reason why these punks get away with everything...they help these idiots with PR.

He is only 19. Isn't it zero tolerance?? He shouldn't have any alcohol in his system, no matter how small the amount.

DUI stands for driving under the INFLUENCE. Which can be anything that impair your judgement! If a cars windows are closed and someone in the vehicle was drinking, it will smell like alcohol. Why are you defending this douche??

If he just had 1 beer right before they pulled him over, his breathe would smell like beer. That may have been what happened.

But if he was also smoking weed and on prescription medicine, he most certainly would be impared and could have failed the field sobriety test.

Nothing in this article convinces me the police fudged the report.

Hes under 21 isn't he?? His bac should never be over 0.00 when he's driving... Or ever! In California, he would be charged for driving with a bac over 0.00.
