Justin Bieber

GPS Records Show NO DRAG RACING

TMZ has obtained GPS records from the rented Lambo Justin Bieber was driving when he was arrested for DUI ... and there is NO evidence of drag racing.

TMZ broke the story ... Miami Beach cops claimed they noticed Bieber and his buddy Khalil (who drove a red Ferrari) drag racing and that's why they were stopped.  Cops claimed they were going between 55 and 60 MPH.

But the GPS on Justin's car records speed when the car accelerates quickly.  Take a look at the read-out.  At 4:07 AM Justin left the club and zoomed away ... reaching a maximum speed of 44 MPH.  Two minutes later the GPS registered at a max speed of 27 MPH. 

Here's why the read-out is so significant.   Cops claim they noticed the drag race on the 2600 block of Pine Tree Drive.  Bieber came to a stop and was then arrested on the 4100 block.  The 27 MPH read out is on the 3700 block ... smack in the middle of the supposed drag race.  Mind you ... 27 MPH is UNDER the 30 MPH speed limit.

If Justin had been racing ... the GPS would have recorded a higher speed.  Yet the maximum speed on Pine Tree was 27 MPH.

Now check this out.  The cops say 2 Escalades were stopped on Pine Tree to block traffic so Bieber and his buddy could drag race.  We obtained the GPS for one of the Escalades (below) which shows at 2:35 AM the SUV stopped -- and that's when Bieber's dad (who was in the Escalade) went inside the nightclub with his son.  They were there for 1.2 hours.

At 4:06 AM the Escalade started rolling and it didn't stop again until Bieber was pulled over.  So it never stopped to accommodate a so-called drag race.

This could present huge problems for prosecutors, because if the pretext of stopping Bieber's car proves false, it could derail the case.  Which is probably why TMZ's videos of Justin's cars were subpoenaed.  Problem is ... the videos don't show drag racing either.

He may have admitted and tested positive for drugs but he for sure wasn't drag racing so the police in miami should get in big **** for this.

So he wasn't racing and just took a couple of xanax? I can see why he was pretty miffed with the police now.

Why are you idiots continuing to harp on this? HE WAS HIGH. Who gives a frog's fat nuts if he was drag racing or not? Posting GPS reports and other nonsense.

Focus on the fact he's driving around while impaired. I guess that's so commonplace now that no one really cares.

Wow-ee! We must know this is gospel , surely no company would falsify records for a rich bad brat...noooo.. then pass the info on to a celebrity site, one with employees that don't know their right hand from their left, and change articles at the drop of a couple bucks. TMZ get off that speed horse and get on the DUI. Let young people know the dangers of
using drugs, hitting up clubs and generally being a jerk. Your reporting seems to justify enablement of your site as well as enabling parents.

At this point, it wouldn't surpirise me at all if TMZ were the one that called the police and said that LezBeaver was drunk and racing. Just to get the first "scoop" and so Harvey can show off his legalese that he hasn't used for anything useful in years.
Just like when Halle Berry's current husband set up and beat up the last one and then did a citizen's arrest. TMZ is all over it saying that the guy was arrested and then milked the legal story for a couple of weeks.

This kind of thing can easily be faked. I don't buy this at all. The rental company clearly was scared they could lose the car if there was any trouble so they made a fake GPS report.

Justin Bieber is a disrespectful little twerp but Police are a important part of the integrity of our democracy. They should never be able to get away with making up fairy tales to infringe on the rights of citizens without severe penalty. If he was as impaired as they say and he could not pass sobriety tests. Then they could have got him legitimately by simply observing him weaving in the lane.

since when does speed show "racing"?

I've "raced" my friends from light to light before, it would be based on tired tred, "spin out" and acceleration, not overall speed.

Not to mention the fact that he ADMITTED to being on drugs and alcohol and weed.

does this matter at all, considering he's underage and had alcohol in his system and tested positive for marijuana and prescription drugs while behind the wheel...?
