Justin Bieber Got Stopped for Doing More Than 100 Miles Per Hour Friday

7/9/2012




JUSTIN BIEBER 
was pulled over for doing more than 100 miles per hour on the 101 Freeway in San Fernando, California on Friday.  Ten people who saw Justin speeding in his Fisker Karma sports car called 911, including Dennis Zine, a Los Angeles city councilman and former L.A. cop.  Zine said, "It was a very dangerous, chaotic situation.  I was driving 60 to 65 miles per hour.  When he passed me, he was driving in a careless, reckless fashion." 

Justin told police he was being chased by paparazzi, and Zine even backs that up.  He says there were other cars following Justin and driving just as recklessly.  Later in the day, Justin filed a complaint with police against one of the drivers who had been chasing him. 

Cops visited him on the set of a video shoot to take his statement.  As luck would have it, the guy driving that other car was there trying to get pictures of Justin.  So cops took a statement from him, too.  For the record, Justin's people say he was "only" doing around 80.  Still, Zine told TMZ he thinks Justin should have been ARRESTED.  (You can listen to his interview here.)

(Meanwhile, Justin and SELENA GOMEZ fought back against those breakup rumors with a DATE NIGHT on Thursday.  You can read more about it and see a picture of them holding hands here.)
