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.

I am a little surprised that no one is talking about the bar owners who sold an under aged boy a drink or about the person who rented the car to someone who has an expired drivers licence. I guess money talks.

Not suprised at all,other than politicians cops are just as delusional,and have been known to make a case out of nothing but pure fabrication and speculative fairytales.This kid is guilty of a lot,but now things are being added on, to make him look worse than what he already is.Typical police work.

The Bieber hate on here is comical. He is a punk who is off the rails. He's far from the only 19 year old who doesn't have their ish together. Either he will grow out of it, or he won't. However, your lives will still suck whether he is punished with jail time or not. It's not worth getting so worked up about. There's way bigger problems in the world. Perspective people.

So...what about your petition US of A? Drag racing in a hot car...how fast again? 30 you say?? Wow! Real fast....

Just face the truth...He's 19, has more money than most..and you can't stand it. Just because you don't like his music (my parents didn't like mine either, when I was that age)...doesn't give you the right to kick him around.

You have a lot worse problems than Justin Beiber...

Not taking up for the punk, but there is a flaw in this article. If the GPS registers when the car rapidly accelerates, why are there so many zeros on the printout?

I'm a little confused I thought all the pictures they were showing of the Ferrari being pulled over was a yellow Ferrari but this article says it was Red...?

Any piece of paper can be forged. Was the device turned over to the police?
