An eighteen-year-old and an exotic pricey sports car are usually an adrenalin-rushing mix.
Toss in a celebrity heartthrob – and frenzied paparazzi in hot pursuit – and the intense scenario is capable of quickly transforming into a high-speed chase with potential disasters waiting to unfold out-of-the-blue at the blink of-an-eye.
Such was the case yesterday, when Justin Bieber roared down Highway 101 Highway (he was alleging zig-zagging in-and-out of traffic in his $100,000.00 Fisker Karma sports car at dizzying speeds of up to 100 m.p.h.) in a bold-faced effort to elude aggressive celebrity photographers out to chronicle his every move in the San Fernando Valley.
Fortunately, a concerned citizen by the name of Councilman Dennis Zine (also a driver on that stretch of the busy road yesterday morning when the incident occurred) spotted the erratic behaviour of the motorists and called 911 to report the incident.
Within minutes, the “Bieb” was screeching to a halt curbside in a quiet neighborhood at the
keen direction of a California Highway Patrol Officer.
“It was so exciting,” one tourist exclaimed to a TV news reporter first on the scene.
“We're staying in the Motel across the street. When the car pulled over, right way, we knew it must be someone rich because the vehicle was so expensive.”
Her children were elated to learn a few minutes later that it was - in fact - Justin Bieber behind the wheel of the high-end sports car.
“My daughter yelled out…We Love you, Justin…Will you marry me?”
Meanwhile, a couple of the paparazzi sped off, out of harm’s way. Undoubtedly, they were concerned that they might be charged for violating California's anti-paparazzi laws, so they took off before they could be identified and charged.
Meanwhile, Zine was fuming over the fact the young pop star got off with a citation.
“This reminds me of the Princess Diana situation.”
The politician felt that Bieber and the paparazzi should have been arrested and charged with reckless driving on the 101 freeway.
Is the Bieb on the fast lane to oblivion?
