Justin Bieber's white Ferrari was pulled over by the authorities less than a mile away from Calabasas neighborhood, just a few days after its owner infuriated neighbors with alleged reckless driving. However, the person behind the sports car wheel this time was Lil Twist, instead of the "Baby" hitmaker.
A picture which was obtained by X17Online shows a law enforcement officer with a motorcycle talking to the rapper who was inside the car. A close-up shot shows that Lil Twist was the one behind the wheel. Twist reportedly was released with a warning.
On Monday night, at least two people witnessed the "Beauty and a Beat" singer driving around his neighborhood in dangerous speed. Bieber's friends told the police who responded to the reckless driving report that the accusation was not true, but the 19-year-old pop star refused to give his statement.
Steve Whitmore of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said, "Mr. Bieber is making statements through others that he was not driving. If he wants to set the record straight, contact us for a sit-down, thorough interview. He has to ask himself this question, 'If you have nothing to hide, why not talk to us?' "
The two witnesses of Bieber's reckless driving are former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson and another neighbor who was disposing trash. Johnson even went to Bieber's mansion to talk to him in person, but the singer ran inside the house. "He was concerned about his daughter and he wanted to talk to Mr. Bieber about that. Mr. Bieber hurried into the home without talking to anybody," Whitemore said.
Another concerned neighbor, NFL Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson, took to Twitter to talk about the incident. "I live in Calabasas too and Justin Bieber needs to slow his a** down. Hey Justin Bieber, I use to have a white Ferrari too, but I knew the speed limit in neighborhoods where kids played," he wrote on Tuesday. He wrote again, "Just to be clear, I think Justin Bieber is a talented young man. But as a parent of young kids the reckless driving concerns me."
