Justin Bieber

Cops May Have Fudged Police Report

EXCLUSIVE

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."

So there saying the cops screwed up the report so now he's going to get away with it. One he is still under age. 2 he admitted what he was on then tried blaming it on his Mommy. He needs to start taking responsibility for what he does money will only get you so far.

Isnt drinking under 21 still illegal no matter what? Couldnt he be charged with underage consumption? Or was the only one lucky enough for that charge in college?

I don't care what his blood alcohol level was unless it was zero. He is 19, it should only be zero! Not sure if it is like this in other states by where I live, if a minor is found to have any amount of alcohol in their system on arrest, they automatically get a minor in possession charge as well. I think they should tack on that charge as well!

Guarantee the smell of alcohol was that Cough Sirrup (codeine) crap he drinks with soda. That's why it di not register on the test and why he was still acting like an idiot.

Just because he was only .014, doesn't mean he didn't smell like alcohol!

"A zillion problems" What... is your law enforcement "source" a 14 year old girl? Is it really a zillion? or is it closer to a bajillion?

Here's the irritating thing about TMZ: You report like a lion and then raise questions in a effort to kiss the celebs ass. He's underage so ANY alcohol in his system is illegal...seriously! Do you have a special team that works the 2nd end of the story? "How can we spin this so Justin will talk to us again????"

See but here is where Justin messed up, yes his breathalyzer reading was .014, legal reading is .08 BUT HES STILL UNDERAGE! In this case, he doesnt need to have a high breathalyzer reading cus hes not even legal to drink. Doesnt change the fact he resisted arrest or was drag racing in a public street. Dudes career has been on a spiral downfall. He hasnt released a hit song in a while, all hes managed to do it wreck his image and career.

so i guess in miami its okay to have any level of blood alcohol even if your under age as long as it's less than .08. The differences between Miami and Chicago I guess. Here he would have been charged with underage drinking at the least.
