Miami Cops May Have Lied About Justin Bieber Drag Racing, GPS Records Emerge (The Libertarian Republic)
Monday February 3rd, 2014
TMZ is reporting that GPS records from Justin Bieber’s rented Lamborghini show that there was no evidence of any drag racing, contrary to police reports. Miami beach cops claimed that they noticed Bieber drag racing, which was the pretext for stopping and arresting him, saying that he was going between 55 and 60 miles per hour. But thanks to the GPS device in the car, that now appears to be false and it could derail the entire case against the singer.
With documents obtained by TMZ, GPS records show that at 4:07 a.m. Bieber left the club at a speed of 44 MPH, then two minutes later the readout registered at 27 MPH. Cops claimed that they noticed the drag race on the 2600 block of Pine Tree Drive, Bieber then came to a stop and was arrested on the 4100 block. The 27 MPH block was recorded on the 3700 block, right in the middle of where Bieber was supposed to be drag racing. So Bieber was going 27 mph in an area where the speed limit is 30 MPH.
Bieber was going UNDER the speed limit.
If Bieber had been drag racing, the records from the GPS in the Lambo would have shown a higher speed, but TMZ’s GPS records have shown that the maximum speed reached on Pine Tree Drive was 27 MPH.
But wait, there’s more!
Officers claimed that 2 Escalades had stopped on Pine Tree in order to allow the drag race to happen. But TMZ acquired the GPS info from the cars and noted that at 4:06, when the cops say Bieber was drag racing, the Escalades were moving and they didn’t stop until Bieber was pulled over. The cars never stopped to accommodate a drag race as the cops had reported.
This is a big problem for the Miami Beach police department, who as The Libertarian Republic has reported in the past, has major credibility issues. TMZ has had their videos of that night subpoenaed by police and they are reporting that they show no evidence of a drag race.
