Justin Bieber is making headlines thanks to his need for speed. According to reports, the singer just got cited for speeding on California’s 101 Freeway.
Who’s to blame for this, though? Apparently it’s L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine- a former LAPD motor officer- who told KNBC-TV Channel 4 that he called 911 after "driving down the road, minding" his own business when he spotted the "careless" Bieber allegedly driving at more than 100 mph.
"Bieber was driving like a maniac. He was weaving in and out of traffic. There was hardly any space between cars as he weaved from lane to lane," Zine told TMZ.
He added: "If I was on patrol, I would have arrested him for reckless driving. I was going 60 and he drove by me like he was in a rocket ship."
Apparently Justin was trying to escape a group of paparazzi, who Zine says were also being irresponsible, driving on the freeway’s shoulder!
The singer’s manager, Scooter Braun, told TMZ that Zine "is just a councilman looking for a headline." Scooter claims J was cited for driving at 80 mph and that shortly after getting ticketed, the paps continued chasing him.
Sources say officials are also investigating the paparazzi for creating a hazardous situation.
