Justin Bieber

GPS Records Show NO DRAG RACING

EXCLUSIVE

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.

All this proves is that he is a lousy drag racer.

You are fools. These records are not a constant record but a pulse record generated by the devices. .A lot could have happened between recordings.

Proof; Note that the Escalade travelled 26.6 miles in 1 hour in Miami traffic at 2:23:15 am. Somehow it managed to travel that distance for an hour without stopping one time. No stop lights in Miami?

Cops actually calibrate the speed indicator 10 miles over the speed limit so the speed indicator starts making noise, telling them you are speeding. So, if the speed indicator in the cop car said 55 the would have been doing 44. That is IF the cops calibrate them at start of shift. They usually set it over the speed limit because if not every car would be speeding and setting off the indicator. BUT, if the posted speed limit on the street is 25 and he was doing 44 it can still be viewed as trying to drag or at least speeding ;)

He's still in trouble anyway. Check this out - from a REAL news outlet:
-
(Regarding his breathalyzer test on the day of the arrest):
"After cops explained that this was a very simple test and they believed he was purposely not doing it correctly, Biebs got agitated and countered "that he was blowing into the hose like he blows into his trumpet." Eventually, he blew a 0.08 and 0.078."
-
Did you read that? .08 is DUI for an ADULT. The legal limit for anyone underage in FL is .04. He was twice that - driving w/o a license, and sassing off to the cops.

Well good thing he was not in Ontario Canada.
If you sit idoling a car, with a substance in your blood, it is instantly taken as a DUI.

Is Harv still on vacation? The flawed logic in this TMZ post is incredible. I'm guess if you are great at sucking Harv cu***ber you get a job. These records only prove that the car was driven. Average speed. Point in time. All different. Prosecutors will ask for black box in car and that data will tell true story like max speed.

One glaring error in this story thread.
Street Racing is defined as "side-by-side racing"
of two cars or more. They could be going 25 mph
and it would STILL BE "drag racing".

So, enough with the speed analysis.
it is an empty argument.

The GPS will be inadmissible in court, There was no chain of command in acquiring this. It will be like when TMZ Allegedly found Amanda Bynes Bong she Allegedly threw out the window. This could have been tampered with?
