Justin Bieber

Cops Claim of

Drag Racing Doesn't Hold Water

1/25/2014 3:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0124-justin-bieber-drivingMiami Beach cops claim Justin Bieber was drag racing at the time of his arrest Thursday ... but the facts seem to show the allegation is MADE UP ... because we've learned they were actually UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT in the middle of the so-called drag race.

According to the police report ... cops spotted Justin and his buddy Khalil drag racing at around 4 AM.

The police report says ... an officer observed the 2 vehicles reaching speeds between 55 and 60 MPH.

Now the problems.  

Cops say they noticed the "drag race" on the 2600 block of Pine Tree Drive.  Cops were traveling in the opposite direction so they made a U turn and pursued the cars for 15 blocks.

Mind you ... Justin was driving one of the fastest race cars around -- a Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder.  Khalil was driving a Ferrari 16M.  Cops claim 2 SUVs in Justin's entourage actually blocked off traffic to give the 2 a clear path.  

So how could a 15-block drag race in those cars reach speeds of ONLY 60 MPH?


TMZ has learned ... the place where Justin and Khalil rented the cars attached a GPS device that also tracks speed. 

The GPS clocked both cars at 27 MPH at the 3500 block of Pine Tree Drive ... smack in the middle of the so-called "drag race."

There's only one time they ever broke 50 MPH and that was long before the pursuit started.  When Justin and Khalil left the club, one car was briefly clocked at 52 MPH and the other 47 MPH. Both drivers slowed down pretty quick and 5 blocks before cops noticed them they were going 34 MPH in a 30 MPH zone.   Blocks later, they were steady at 27 MPH.

 So it seems cops goosed the facts to justify the stop.

And that's not the only problem with the police report.  TMZ broke the story ... Justin's blood alcohol level was .014 -- a barely measurable amount.  Yet cops claim Justin reeked of alcohol both at the scene and at the police department.

Uhhhhh the point is,whether he was under the influence or not the cops didn't have probable cause. You people are the same ones fighting for your gun rights yet everytime you allow am injustice to occur BC you think someone"deserves"it, you're setting us back. welcome to the police state where people are pulled over,detained and harassed with no just cause. Treading dangerous waters. In any case,I'm willing to beat this whole thing will disappear if Bieber goes to"rehab" and falls back in line. Some of you guys know what's up,...the rest of y'all are still asleep. Sheeple...smh

A couple of issues with your story. Since when are 19 year olds allowed to rent cars? You need to be 21 even to rent a ford focus. Why was it necessary for his entourage to block off streets if he wasn't racing? Someone in his posse rented those cars for him.

If he failed the field sobriety test and they have video, he can be hit with a DUI even if his bac was as low as tmz claims in this story (which is only a little below the DUI/ lost license limit for under 21). The bac legal limit is just the level at which it's rather pointless to contest. You can be charged with DUI if you are shown to be impaired, as by the field test, even if your bac is below the legal limit.

He was caught racing on a near-by private surveillance camera in the residential neighborhood of Miami captured Justin drag racing his yellow Lamborghini with a police car following close behind him. The video also shows a red Ferrari, which Khalil was driving, closely behind, along with black SUVs — possibly the ones that blocked off the residential street — and police cars a bit further behind the cavalcade.

Mr Bias    

Cops lie on reports without consciousness. They are the real criminals. I hope they are prosecuted. Let this be a lesson to law enforcement everywhere; your lies and corruption are slowly coming to an end. We the people are fighting back against these peasants of society.

Justin Bieber didn't pay the cops when they raid his house, or the 7-8 times they stopped him for speeding, or when he was seeing in strip clubs or did bull**** that he pretty much does everyday. But we all just try to justify that for once he actually did nothing so you all say he paid to set free. He didn't pay no one to have his whole face on every single channel as a criminal. You all you love to hate and I hope someday you will go through the same thing.

When the cops tested The Beaver they said he was a .04, when it was really a .014.

The .014 registered that high because of the Sizzurp/Lean he drank 3 days before. The Lean was still in his system..

Now The Beaves went to Panama to by a new Liver.

Poor Beaves, who in their right mind would want to travel to Panama, what a lousy place to relax.

Wait until he gets bite by a Bot Fly and it lays a huge sack of eggs under his skin.

The only way to get them out is to put a piece of Duct Tape over the area where the fly nite was, and the Tape blocks the oxygen to the eggs and the Bot Fly Larvae tries to exit the body. After 2-3 days of the Duct Tape on the skin the fly Larvae is close to the outside of the body, then when you pull the tape off you can grab the Larvae with some tweezers right away.

If The Beaver stays out on the beach after dark, the chances are high he could get bite and catch The Bot Fly.

When we were there my friend had one in his body and his girlfriend had 2 of the critters.
I used plenty of OFF and was lucky to not catch one. They are painful. We squeezed 1/2 tube of Neosporin in the hole in their bodies.

They were big ones like in this video,
Pamama is full of Bot Flies.

Now white people, this is why black people hate police because they are liars, star struck with agendas in their eyes. If a black people did what Justin Beaver fake did, that black person would be dead.
