Jermaine Dupri

Miami Beach Cops Profiled Bieber

... Just Like Me

0128_jermaine_dupri_tmz_Article
Justin Bieber was nailed for DUI by cops who were desperate to bust him for ANYTHING ... so says music mogul Jermaine Dupri who claims he and Bieber are both victims of celeb profiling by the Miami Beach PD.

Justin's bust sounds very familiar to Dupri ... who accuses Miami Beach officers of targeting HIM back in Dec ... when he and his pals were pulled over by 5 squad cars and a K9 unit.  Police claimed they smelled pot in the car ... but a search turned up ZILCH.  

Dupri tells TMZ it's no secret people openly smoke weed in Miami clubs ... so he thinks cops know there's a good chance anyone leaving a nightspot -- like Bieber last week -- will smell like pot.

He adds ... cops know if they pull over people leaving the clubs "9 times outta 10 they gonna find something."

Of course, up to this point cops don't have much on Bieber. As we reported ... Justin's blood alcohol was only .014 -- and there's no evidence he was speeding in a drag race either.

Dupri says Bieber did make one mistake by being way too flashy on the strip saying, "He brought attention to himself with the car (the canary yellow Lambo)."

Sorry, TMZ, your credibility is zero. In fact you have less credibility than the Miami police. You discount witnesses to the drag race and you discount DUI because you keep attempting to make the criteria .08. A breathalyzer taps the air in the lungs -mouthwash will not affect a breath test. It picks up the gas transfer from the blood stream. Thus .014 would be probably twice that with a blood or urine test.

Somebody tell Jermaine t STFU and go someplace and keep his dental appointment. He knows darn well he and Biebutt are profiled for different reasons. What did he do for this interview? Jump in front of the camera?

If you are under the legal drinking age, you should blow a zero. If you are driving you should not be impaired in any way, shape, or form. Stop coddling him! His behavior isn't okay...

What the hell is he talking about ?? Lambo's in Miami beach are as common as Honda accords?? Cops are used to seeing one every 5 minutes... That's not flashy to the cops that common... He obviously doesn't go to Miami beach enough to know what he's talking about

TMZ - didn't you report that .014 is still illegal for someone under 21? Didn't you report Florida is a zero tolerance state for underage drinking ? So you are now reporting that the cops goosed the case because he wasn't legally drunk (for an adult).. He's 19 and not supposed to have any alcohol in his system .. The kid broke the law - end of story
