L.A. City Councilman — Justin Bieber Should Have Been Arrested

Justin Bieber just got cited for speeding on the freeway, and the witness who called 911 — who happens to be an L.A. City Councilman — tells TMZ, Bieber should have been cuffed, locked up and stripped of his driving privileges.

Councilman Dennis Zine — who ironically was an LAPD motor officer for 18 years — was on the 101 Freeway when he saw Justin in his chrome Fisker Karma roaring down the freeway at speeds that Zine says exceeded100 mph.

Zine tells us …  Bieber was trying to shake a team of paparazzi (NOT TMZ) that was on his tail.

Zine says, “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 says, “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.  He was a maniac.”

Zine also says the paparazzi were incredibly irresponsible, driving on the shoulder of the freeway and causing an extreme hazard.  After he was pulled over, at least 4 paps were swarming Bieb’s car (video to come).

Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, tells TMZ, Zine “is just a councilman looking for a headline.”  Braun says Justin was cited for going 80 mph and he was being chased by the paparazzi.  Braun adds a short time after getting ticketed, the paparazzi resumed their pursuit and Justin called 911.

Law enforcement sources tell us … the CHP is investigating the paparazzi for creating a hazardous situation.
