Justin Bieber got a speeding ticket for going 100 mph on a CA freeway

Did you know that Justin Bieber owns a $100K chrome wrapped, Fisker Karma electric car? True story. I’m including some photos of the car in this post – it’s actually a really beautiful sports car and I would love a ride in it, in general. If I had The Bieb’s money. I would drop $100K on a fancy sports car too, and bonus points for getting an electric car too. I think the problem I have is that it’s all chrome? It’s pretty to look at, sure, but it seems so impractical. I had a white car once and you could see everything, every little ding and scratch and speck of dirt. Is it the same on a chrome car?

Anyway, The Bieb has his fancy chrome car. And he uses the car whenever he’s in LA, like he was at the end of last week. The Bieb was in town with his still-on girlfriend Selena Gomez, although there are rumors that they’re having problems. The Bieb was driving around – with a bodyguard, it seems – on Friday during the day when he was pulled over by a California Highway Patrol officer. Guess how fast Justin was going? 100 MPH!!! On the 101, which is… what? What’s the speed limit on the 101? 65 MPH? Probably, something like that – Google says it might be 55 mph in some places. Allegedly, Justin told the officer that he was “evading the paparazzi” but no one knows if there were paparazzi tracking him at the time. The Bieb was cited for speeding and given a ticket. Apparently, it was such a weird/awful situation that people were calling 911 to report Justin’s driving antics:

L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine was not the only motorist who reported that Justin Bieber was flying down the freeway at breakneck speed … TMZ has learned, a total of 10 drivers called 911.

We broke the story, Zine — who was an LAPD motor cop for 18 years — believes Bieber was traveling faster than 100 mph. Bieber’s people dispute Zine’s estimate, noting that the singer was cited for ONLY going 80.

But when Bieber was finally stopped by CHP officers, he was several miles from the point Zine spotted him, and Zine told us Friday night his100 mph estimate was “conservative.”

And get this … we’re told someone from Bieber’s security team was a passenger in his car and allowed Justin to put the pedal to the metal. Mind you, Justin was weaving in and out of traffic, barely squeezing in between moving vehicles.

As we reported, Bieber was being chased by paparazzi, but Zine maintains the 18-year-old jeopardized his life and the lives of others and he should have slowed down and pulled off the freeway.

[From TMZ]

Yikes! Bieber is lucky he only got a speeding ticket, although I guess if he was a pretty white female crackhead with a nice rack (see: Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan), he probably would have just gotten off with a warning. If that. Oh, well. It’s nice to see the state of California try to bring at least one celebrity to justice.

    Not a fan of Justin but that car looks awesome!

    • Angel says:

      But can be dangerous as hell. This “color” can be very tricky for the eyes. High speed+full sun+lack of driving skills=disaster.

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    Linnocent Lite. Apparently, his sense of self-entitlement has blossomed to full-on Blohan proportions. Oh, and NOTHING IS EVER HIS FAULT! (The pap was taunting me; the pap was chasing me…you get the idea.)

    Nip it in the bud NOW, LAPD. (Which I’m sure you won’t, as you sent officers to the set of his video to take his complaint report about the aforementioned pap.)

    GAWD, LA “justice!” *smhid*

    • TheOriginalTiffany says:

      At least NINE people called in about the unsafe douche in the flashy car weaving in and out of traffic.

      Cops will give you a break on speed. I got a ticket in central ca driving back from the ranch. He cut it to ten miles over the limit and it was still $354!!!

      That thing would be blinding in LA. It’s a ticket magnet anyway, he is lucky he didn’t kill anyone on the 101. Not a safe highway to go 100+

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Yeah, the place to speed is definitely on the way home from Tahoe or Vegas, not the 101.

        That’s just begging for trouble.

        Congrats on your sis, Tiff! :)

  3. teehee says:

    It should be illegal to drive a car like that– it blinds other drivers and pedestrians! How can this be allowed- and I wonder just how much the insurance costs, if anyone is willing to insure taht thing…

    • First Timer says:

      That is true. I wonder if there is a law about this type of body of a car.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      We have laws about window tint on the front windows (unless it’s actual factory-tinted glass), so I imagine there’s probably something on the books.

    • Amy says:

      This. I can’t believe that thing is street legal with the chrome wrap. If it’s not illegal to wrap your car in something that reflective, it needs to be.

  4. lisa2 says:

    I understand the paps were chasing him.. but a chase only works if you are running. It was dangerous. He is still a relative new driver. So many terrible things could have happened to him or innocent people. And I agree with another poster, the color of that car should be outlawed. PLUS it is a calling card to the paps.. HEY LOOK HERE I AM..HERE I AM.

    He just tries so hard to be cool and grown up. He still looks like a baby. I think it is kind of a version of short man complex.

    I don’t like him. But I’m not a teen so.

    • Maguita says:

      I think the kid is loosing it!

      He used to be so cool, calm, gracious to everyone, now he is picking fights on sidewalks with paps, refusing to sign for fans, and speeding like a maniac on the highway. Either his first big break-up rumors are true, and he is acting out. Or he really is a douche, and it’s starting to show!

    • valleymiss says:

      I agree with the “chase” concept. Why couldn’t Bieber slow down and go 65? What, so a paparazzi then can keep up with him and follow him to another location and snap pics of him? Big deal. How come going 100 mph, putting himself, his passenger, and the other motorists in danger, was a better alternative to just letting the paps take their pictures?

      He wants his privacy? That’s fine. But don’t buy a chrome sports car and complain about the attention it brings. There are plenty of stars, BIG stars, who drive on that freeway every day (along with my family, my friends, and I!) The speed limit on the 101 is 65 AND it’s a heavily travelled, very busy freeway. No room for jerky kids playing in their sports cars. If he can’t follow the speed limits, perhaps he should go back to Canada. I have no sympathy for this d*ck. He could have killed innocent people.

      • Lady D says:

        We Canadians are very happy to share. Keep him as long as you want.
        Wouldn’t it be great if his record kept him out of Canada? Wishful thinking I know.

      • wenderwoman says:

        I drive the 101 every day too and it is a very busy freeway. If he was really going that fast, he should have been cited for reckless driving.

    • M.Arpeggi says:

      I agree about your assessment of the car – it screams *BLING*, which is an interesting choice of colour if one wants to “evade” the paparazzi…

      Perhaps next time, he should choose something a little less LOOK-AT-ME!-HERE-I-AM!!

  5. Kimlee says:

    Bieber has filed a harassment complaint against one of the so called ” paparazzi” that may have or may not have chased him down an L.A. freeway Friday — claiming the guy was a maniac on the road … and put several lives in danger.

    Funny how 10 people call say that the chrome car which is Justins car was driving like a maniac but no mention of another car.

    Even if their was paparazzi fallowing him there is still no reason for him to be doing 100 mph, endangering other people lives. He could have just call 911 to complain like the other drivers did on him. Bieber seems like he just looking to place the blame on someone eles, so he can get out of his ticket.

  6. Jackson says:

    Exactly! Both parties have to participate for it to be a chase!! He probably wanted to lose them and decided to drive like the entitled little twit that he is and, ergo, a chase ensued. Kid needs to grow the eff up and actually start to act like the adult that he tries so hard to convince he is.

    ETA: Oops, was in response to Lisa2.

  7. mia girl says:

    I’ve ridden in a Fisker and it is a truly beautiful piece of machinery. Although the one I rode in was not “bedazzled” like Bieber’s.

  8. liteNOTSObrite says:

    Ugh! I don’t feel like reading this so I’ll just get to the point. I can’t stand this lil punk. END RANT!

  9. Cathy says:

    An ugly car, ugly owner. Nuff said.

  10. I.want.shoes says:

    That specific shade of chrome colour is called “Famewhore chrome”

    • Izzy says:

      *snort LOL! Great comment, and love your handle. Does this mean Kim Kartrashian will be getting one of these cars next? Or did they just name the color after her? :)

      • Shaishai says:

        Snap Izzy, I was JUST thinking the same thing! :-)
        Maybe she’ll just get her face shellacked this colour instead of the day-glo orange it usually is?

  11. LindyLou says:

    I’m glad this little d-bag got a ticket. He’s lucky it was only for speeding and not reckless driving.

    • visciousbitch says:

      where I am from getting sited for 80 in a 65 IS reckless driving and generally they put you in jail. Then again, I am from Tennesee. You also get tickets here for dim tail lights. Jeez I wish I had a car like that when I was 18 but I also work for a living…LOL!

  12. kay says:

    He doesn’t have the experience to be driving a car like that- not just the speed but the car itself.

    As for the paps following, I believe they did, and because he is young and needs more experience, he thought driving faster was better, rather than pulling over. I think some arrogance came into play here, and a lack of knowledge of consequences.

    but ultimately, paps need to back off celebs. we don’t need to know every.single.detail.

    A big story, like the Katie thing, yes, because of the bigger picture (scientology, abuse, etc). But even radar reporting about the time she spends with her lawyers is far beyond what is needed.

  13. lulu says:

    What an incredibly childish and selfish thing to do. Endangering the lives of other people! Kill yourself and your bodyguard if you want Beibs, but leave the rest of us alone. As a Californian and someone who spends hours on the freeways every week, I am not impressed.

  14. Minty says:

    Chrome is a road hazard because of the glare. Could he choose a more attention-grabbing color? This is not flying-under-the-radar-to-avoid-the-paparazzi. This is shouting: “Look at me and my swag, dammit!”

    I don’t see a bright future ahead for this punk. He believes his own hype and thinks he’s a rare talent. You are just one in a long line of teen idols. You are replaceable because there’s an expiration date.

    Justin is not handling the fame side very well. He’s getting into scuffles with the paps and now this speeding ticket. He is acting out, like many former child stars before him. He will crash and burn (no pun intended).

  15. e.non says:

    he really needs to be brought down a peg or …ten. there’s way too much discretionary spending in the hands of tweens that ends up in his bank accounts. … ;-)

  16. mary simon says:

    This kid is a punk, but he is gorgeous. I can see why the girls love him.

    • Missy says:

      Yes. I’m not sexually attracted to him, but I want to take him home and bake cookies for him. He’s ridiculously adorable.

    • NerdMomma says:

      Ew. What? Please say that’s sarcasm.

      • Amy says:

        I’m really hoping that’s sarcasm, too. All I see when I look at him is a eunuch, a castrato. There’s no way he’s playing with a full deck of male hormones.

  17. Missy says:

    One hundred miles per hour is fast. But for anyone who frequents L.A.’s freeways, most people, barring traffic, go well beyond the 65 mph speed limit. Whenever I’m driving at 65, cars are zooming right past me, others coming from behind with the drivers sometimes giving the look that says “Why so slow?”

    • valleymiss says:

      True. Most folks (including me) go about 70 or 75. But to go 100 AND weave in and out of traffic…major 30 car pileup waiting to happen.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        On the 101, big difference. That’s really not a freeway, more like a highway.

        Sure speed on the 15 or the 210 when it is empty or go 75, but 100 weaving in and out of a two lane (one one side) highway is douchetastic and dangerous.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        BIG difference. At times, there are precipitous drop-offs and hills with minimal or no shoulder. Plus, the 101 tends to be highly traveled and traffic rich.

  18. jelynn says:

    He was also passing cars at that speed on the shoulder of the road. He’s an entitled brat.

  19. NM6804 says:

    The douche is blossoming. Soon it will roam the tabloids in full force, leaving its penetrating stank everywhere. Bless his little heart.

    No wonder why he and Gomez are on the verge of splitting up.

  20. moxylady007 says:

    Yo JB- Your desire for privacy from the paps is not worth anyone’s life or well being.


  21. Samigirl says:

    In my state, if you go 25+ speed limit, you automatically get thrown in a police car. That’s dangerous…especially on the highways in Cali!

  22. waitingforsummer says:

    He looks badass with his “tattoos.” *eye roll* He epitomizes douchiness.

  23. bgirl says:

    There are not strong enough words in any language to describe my level of hatred for this entitled a**hole. I can’t wait until he disappears.

  24. A Fan says:

    I said it before, I’ll say it again. There’s something wrong with a kid, a child, being given all that money and all that power. He is a teenage boy – with all that entails – with an unlimited bank account, unlimited power, and, because of that, unlimited ego. Someone that age should never be granted those things…some adults can’t handle that, never mind a teenage boy. It’s not right.

  25. some bitch says:

    If Bieber pulled that sort of stunt on a highway here in Canada his car would have been immediately impounded for 7 days, his license would be suspended for 7 days, he’d earn six demerit points, have to go to court and be forced to pay up to ten grand in fines… and rightly so. This little dork could have easily killed people with his reckless driving.

    Who needs a chrome car anyway? Bieber should look into a Civic or something a little less flashy to evade the paparazzi.

  26. Izzy says:

    Little punk-a$$ douche. Can’t wait until his voice breaks and his skin really breaks out. Maybe then he’ll go away. And hopefully he won’t have killed anyone with that ridiculous car.

  27. Janet says:

    For those of you who forgot or are too young to remember: James Dean literally crashed and burned doing 100 mph on the freeway.

  28. Bird says:

    But…how did the paps know it was Justin’s car? There must be a million chrome Fisker Karmas on the road. He isn’t trying to stand out, or anything. Just a sweet, unassuming kid trying to get to his charity work.

    • Missy says:

      He he!

    • valleymiss says:

      Lol so snarky…I love it. ;-)

      Bieber’s a punk. For all the singers who hate the paps: Please get a regular fulltime job and sing in local clubs at night. If you love your “craft” so much, and don’t care about the fame and $, just do it. Bieber’s forgetting that that very fame is what bought him the $100k car.

      For all the actors who are sick of the paps, get a fulltime normal person job and just do community theater at night and on weekends.

      Don’t whine about the fame. It was your choice to pursue it.

  29. the original liv says:

    I doubt he was going only 80. Most Californian drivers are usually going 75-85 on freeways, so 80 wouldn’t have been such a big deal. So yeah, he was prob going over 100

  30. Deryn says:

    The hair. What?

    Also, did he actually write “Belieber” on the inside of his arm?

  31. Violet says:

    Selena: Honey, can you carry my compact mirror in one of your giant douchey pockets? Justin: No need baby, we’ll just take the famewhore-mobile. …

  32. Genevieve says:

    That car screams douchebag….& that’s putting it nicely.

  33. Cam S says:

    She probably flirted her way outta the ticket

  34. lucy2 says:

    “if he was a pretty white female”…wait…he’s NOT? OMG!

    If he was being chased, HE should have called the police, rather than risking a lot of people’s lives by driving like a moron.

  35. phoenix says:

    He should keep his head down and eyes open with these accidents and bru hahas.

  36. Mom says:

    No one has the right to endanger lives on the CA freeways; not OJ or Bieber.

    I’ve long thought that these young adults missed out on driver’s education traveling, making movies, and are sorely lacking in their driving skills.

  37. Dredz says:

    He looks more and more like a woman every time

  38. chromehearts says:

    I CANNOT get over how much he looks like a woman. . .

  39. Mario says:

    He’s turning into a huge ahole quite rapidly.

  40. Joanna says:

    puuleez, the paps chasing him is just an excuse to get out of a ticket! big deal, 100 mph. i normally do 70-80. i would go faster but i can’t afford a speeding ticket. if the worst he does is speed and cut people off, big deal. i see and do that every day.

    • some bitch says:

      Cutting people off is such a d–k move. Get off the road before you kill somebody, thanks.

  41. skuddles says:

    I don’t give a rats ass if he was being chased by paps or not (and seriously, were the paps chasing him at 100 mph??) – no excuse for putting other people’s lives at risk!

  42. Kosmos says:

    If he doesn’t want the paps chasing him in his car, he shouldn’t drive his car…he definitely should not endanger the lives of other people on the freeway as he did, very bad behavior. Yes, he’s still a kid, growing into a young man who feels entitled and can get away with anything. Unfortunately, now that he’s made a name for himself, he cannot just go to a movie with Gomez, or drive in a stand-out car without being followed and recognized. He can’t have the recognition and fame just when he wants to turn it on or off, sorry, Bieber. The fine won’t make a dent in his millions, but being cited for a moving violation like that should land him in traffic court. It seems unfair that his lawyers can get him out of it when the rest of us would have to suffer the consequences.

  43. Moreaces says:

    He’s starting to look a little less girly.

  44. Snowpea says:

    That kid dresses like shit.

    I have a theory about child stars. Unless you have parents that are willing to guide and mentor you, keep your money in trust and keep a very very tight rein on you, you will absolutely go off the rails.

    A good example of this is Emma Watson. The girl is worth a gazillion pounds, but until recently, her parents doled out a really minuscule allowance as befitting her age. And they insisted she go to university.

    A BAD example is Miss Lindsay Lohan and her trashy famewhoring parents. And dare I say it, this brat. The Biebs seriously looks like he needs to be reined in.

    By 21, he’ll be a has been with a raging cocaine habit and a complete lack of sense of self.

  45. orion70 says:

    Didn’t Ellen give him a/that car? If so, she should take it back.

  46. Blen says:

    Nice rack? Lohan?

    Girl, please.

  47. TXCinderella says:

    If he’s trying to avoid the paps, why would he buy a car that screams “Here I am?”. So dumb.

And what a lame excuse about the paparazzi following him, he should of just rolled up his windows and ignore them. Or called the cops on them for following him and tailgating him. But just because he’s a celebrity doesn’t mean he can step all over the law and speed without getting in trouble. I’m sorry Justin, but you could of killed yourself and others with that wreak less driving. I hope you learned your lesson:/

    The speed on Hwy 101 in California is 65mph, never higher than that though most folks keep a speed of 75-85

    This little prick…he’s like douche’ mosquitoe on my arms, I’d love to just flick this lil prick right off.

    “Justih, babe, yeah, babe, I know you’re like…you know, cool man? But like, going 100mph dude? It could like, totally like kill another bro’ ya know man? Peace out keep it real my brother…”

    Serious prick, damn lucky he didn’t kill anybody too. For an 18 yr old wee man, he sure got a lot of swag, (though I’m not sure he’s completed all stages of puberty)…likes to grab his balls a lot…? and Usher cannot be having a good influence on him

    Hey guys it looks like bieber was right the paps where chasing him they just release 7 other 911 calls about the justin and paparazzi chase

  54. Steve says:

    The car is illegal as hell.
    The body alone relegates it to “show” only use.
    Violation of federal law for on-road use.
