Oh no! Justin frantically called 911 after getting a speeding ticket! Read on to hear what he said during that scary call!
“I’m just trying to have them not be on my tail,” Justin frantically tells LAPD on the phone. “They have like five cars following me. They are driving really reckless.”
Justin was cited for speeding on July 6– going 20 over the 60 mph speed limit — on the L.A. 101 Freeway. L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine called the police on the 18-year-old heartthrob after he spotted him driving like a “maniac.”
“He was weaving in and out of traffic. “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,” Dennis told TMZ on July 6.
But Justin claims he was just trying to lose the relentless photographers speeding behind him.
“When I tried to explain it to the police officers, they were just being not nice about it,” Justin says in the phone call. “He let all the paparazzi around my vehicle when he was giving me the citation.”
The 10-minute call ends with Justin meeting up with LAPD off the highway who were supposed to keep him safe from the photographers. It definitely sounds like it was dangerous situation for Justin. You can just hear it in his voice that he was scared!
