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.

Any alcohol in him is illegal as he is underage, as well as driving 44 mph under the influence. Regardless, they had a large group in a residential neighborhood on a weeknight at 4 am. if they weren't racing when caught it was just a matter of time. When people abuse Zanax it makes them act drunk. If you take it appropriately it doesn't make you slur but obviously he couldn't pass the sobriety test and tested positive for THC, i was happy that you all were finally reporting what he deserved and someone from Biebers camp must have gotten to you guys because now its all about what the cops did wrong, it doesn't change the fact that he was underage, had been drinking, smoking weed and had taken enough Zanax to seem drunk. Do you want him on your residential street behind the wheel of that car with your kids walking to school? Nope. And where are all the other speeds on the report? Why only those 2, was the car not moving those other times. If they rent high end cards to celebrities, you really want me to believe they don't have a way to manipulate that? Same with the Escolade report. Come one, be smarter than this. hey was his Mom one of Billy Ray Cyrus' groupies? DNA Test he and Miley, they both act a fool and look exactly alike.. There's a story to run with. LOL

This is going to be the lynch pin to either a 100% dismissal or Beeb takes a Plea/

If the cop can explain he observed the tires spin and high RPM of the Lambo from a starting position - It's called Excessive Acceleration...but the cop did not write a ticket for that but it is "cause" to pull over dude.

ONce he is pulled over (if it holds up) Its game over for Beeb because he had no valid license (arrestable) and then the urine test shows intoxicants.

Here's why the read-out is so insignificant. Drag racing is two cars, side-by-side, both going the same direction. The low speed proves nothing, except that they're kind of ******* to be drag racing on a suburban street-the interstate had to be nearby.

The GPS readings can be misleading. There is a 2 minute gap between gps readings. The 2013 Lamborghini LP550 can go from 0-60... mph in 3.9 seconds. Justin could have very well exceeded the speed limit by a ton and then slowed down again in that 2 minute span. Same issue for the Escalade where there is an over 7 minute gap where the SUV could have stopped and started again.

He admitted to being on drugs so none of this really matters but TMZ looks stupid talking about how they "BROKE THE STORY" of him drag racing and now say there is no evidence he was drag racing. So then you're admitting you published a BS story without any proof. Good job TMZ, idiots.

Theres a 2 minute window with no readings on the Lambo. Thats more than enough for a drag race. And the windows on the Escalade are even longer. Those GPS readouts tell nothing about what actually happened.

So MBP didn't have probable cause to stop him.

The City Attorney will have no choice but to challange the validity of the GPS readouts.

And members of the grand jury will probably except the testimony of the police officer.--they always do. It's a rigged system.

Have we found a police department more creepy than the L.A. Sheriff's ?? It seems impossible but I think we have...

This is the worst cover up in history:
- Bieber failed the sobriety test,
- Bieber admitted being on drugs
- The drug test supported that
- His dad and punk friends blocked off the street illegally
- Bieber's drivers license was expired

Other stories from the past that add up now
- His house in Calabasas was raided and drugs were found
- Justin Bieber got pulled over for speeding like a maniac on the 101
- Speeding in his gated neighborhood
- Bieber assaulting driver
- Bieber hit and run at the laugh factory on Sunset Blvd
- Paparazzi killed chasing Bieber's Fisker

Sure, this kid is perfectly innocent.

Quit acting like Bieber is going to walk on this. He was seen speeding by a police officer and pulled over. While the GPS doesn't show him drag racing he is doing over the posted speed limit. When pulled over he admitted to being high on weed and perscription pills and this has been confirmed by the tests. He is dead to rights on the DUI offense. The drag racing may go away but that won't negate the DUI.
