911 call of L.A Councilman about Justin Bieber car chase released
Media outlet TMZ has obtained the urgent 911 call placed by Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine about the wild, high-speed car chase which involved Justin Bieber on the 101 Freeway last Friday. A car chase where Bieber allegedly got past the 100 mph limit.
According to the 911 call, Councilman Dennis Zine told the 911 operator at the other end of the line that there’s “a crazy chase going down” — with five or six cars led by 18-year-old pop star Justin Bieber … “cutting off cars” and “weaving in and out” of traffic at hair-raising speeds.
Dennis Zine added that they were “driving like maniacs.”
The Los Angeles City Councilman told TMZ that Justin Bieber was driving at least 100 mph on the 101 Freeway, but on the 911 call, Zine said that the teen singer was going around 90.
As previous reports have stated, the “Baby” singer was being chased by a rogue paparazzi as he sped down the 101 Freeway, weaving in and out of the lane. Dennis Zine, a former Los Angeles Police Department motor cop, told TMZ that if he was on patrol that time, he would have arrested Bieber for reckless endangerment.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the 911 call placed by Zine, and a few miles down the freeway, Justin Bieber was subsequently halted and cited for going 80.
One of the paparazzi in the wild car chase is currently under investigation for harassment.
