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."

Isn't that almost twice? I guess not if you're a white billionaire. Plus he's not of age...

Anyone familiar with Miami knows the police issues/credibility/corruptness there.... Another reason to check your facts regarding the police report, prior to jumping on the JB wagon to print untrue statements in your efforts to take him down... I see that the infamous attorney, Roy Black, didn't hesitate to come to his aid & take charge.. Doesn't hurt that his wife is the Mayor either......Good representation!!!!

OK here it is. He was arrested in FL. I have lived here 30 years. Yes, the drinking age is 21. HOWEVER, a minor drinking and driving has to have a .02 or higher to get a DUI. This is NOT a zero tolerance state. I know it doesn't make sense but that is the law in Florida. So for the alcohol DUI he's off if in fact it is .014. But that doesn't mean he can't get the DUI because of other intoxicants which hopefully they pulled a blood sample and are analyzing.

These comments are pathetic. Bieber sucks, but who cares? Your lives will still suck, even if Bieber goes away. You would probably get bored without him creating stories.

HE'S 19 YEARS OLD. ANY ALCOHOL IN HIS SYSTEM IS ILLEGAL.... he was also on drugs and DRAG racing. Sounds a bit like the 'powers that be' are trying to work the system to help him get away with all of this yet again....

Whether he had .04 or .014 or .002 it should NOT MATTER HE IS UNDER 21!

The Bieb is under 21 so any alcohol is ILLEGAL. Maybe the car reeked of alcohol. He probably spilled a drink in it. The real problem is all of the drugs he took. Mix alcohol and drugs and that's just as wasted.

devil's advocate    

I'm not so sure the police fudged the report. I don't doubt that the cop smelled alcohol on Justin's breath and if he had been smoking weed, it would explain the bloodshot eyes and slow reaction time. I think TMZ fudged things with their OUTRAGES HEADLINES SAYING JUSTIN REEKED OF ALCOHOL SO MUCH THAT THE OFFICER WAS OVERCOME BY THE SMELL., and other ridiculous headlines just to get people to read your site. Why not just post the facts as you know them instead of all the speculation and sensationalism.

No hole in the case. The officer smelled alcohol, Bieber had been drinking, the cop could smell it, so this was an accurate claim. Since Bieber was uncooperative, no field sobriety test was performed, he was arrested and his blood alcohol was measured at the police station. His blood test will measure the other drugs in his system. Rumors about his BAC don't make any difference in the strength of the case, the actual facts do. Bieber the inbiber, a talentless p****.
