Lil Twist

Beats DUI Rap

NOT STONED ENOUGH

Lil Twist
-- who was arrested for DUI, stumbled and swayed during the field sobriety test and admitted to smoking weed just before driving ... BEAT THE RAP because cops say he wasn't THAT stoned.

It's just plain weird.  Twist was stopped a year ago for doing 69 MPH in a 30 and running a red light. Cops noticed a lit blunt in the center console and smelled the weed.  They also noticed his eyes were bloodshot and his speech was "deliberate and lethargic." 

Twist admitted he'd been smoking.  He then failed the field sobriety test ... he couldn't touch his nose, couldn't walk a straight line, and swayed when he tried standing on 1 leg and his eyes were rolling.

Seems like case closed, right?  It was, because the D.A. REJECTED the case. The reasons:

-- Cops waited an hour and 46 minutes before taking a blood sample.  The amount of weed in his system was not high enough to indicate impairment.

-- His field sobriety results were only "moderately bad."

-- The senior criminologist couldn't argue on the stand he was impaired to drive. 

So all Twist ended up with was 3 tickets -- speeding, failing to stop at a red light and possession of less than 1 oz. of weed.

Are the cops in LA stupid ro just plain incompetent. How is it possible if this dumb ass little jerk is too stoned to pass field sobriety tests that the DA rejects the case. How about driving to endanger. There is something wrong with the facts in this case. something doesn't add up. This is why these young stupid morons keep getting away with this ****. They get slaps on the wrist until someone gets mimed or killed.... Then the public rises up in disgust. If they enforce the laws against these, stupid kids, we will all be safer.....

Another injustice brought to you compliments of Beiber's money and a corrupt court system. The judge was probably another star f-er.

If this was his ex friend Justin Bieber, the D.A. might have pushed for the death penalty.

The entire LAPD, DA's Office, Judge, and other members of the court system need to be universally fired for being too lenient and consistently making incompetent decisions.

LA needs to Elect a new D.A who is not afraid to Prosecute Celebrities and their Kids. Obama really did no favors to the City of LA when he gave Hollywood that 4 Billion dollar Stimulus Package.
