Justin Bieber recently angered a whole host of Calabasas residents — including NFL star Keyshawn Johnson — by driving at freeway speeds in a 25 mph zone. And it looks like the X Factor mentor might not get off easy this time. An investigation is currently under way and, if angry residents get what they want, could lead to misdemeanor charges for the Biebs.
He might be a celebrity, but that does not mean that Justin Bieber can get away with endangering the lives of others with his crazy driving. Or at least, that’s the position famous athlete and concerned father Keyshawn Johnson is taking. Keyshawn and several other Calabasas residents have complained about Justin’s out of control behavior, which included treating the roads of a small residential community as if they were personal race tracks.
Keyshawn Johnson may not have had the opportunity to speak directly with Justin Bieber, but he’s determined to make sure the celeb gets the message loud and clear. This could mean legal action, for Keyshawn is certainly not the only witness to observe Justin’s reckless driving. A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s detectives reports that an investigation is currently underway — and that there are already multiple witnesses providing clear information on the incident. “Their eyewitness testimony to our deputies was definitive — not only the speed, not only the vehicle, but Mr. Bieber was sitting and driving in the driver’s side seat…We take this very seriously and if this actually did occur, which it appears that it did, it is unacceptable behavior from anybody, anywhere, anytime.”
Chances are, the current investigation will result in the filing of reckless driving report to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office…and from there, potential misdemeanor charges. Will this be enough to put a stop to J Biebs’ reckless behavior? Probably not, but it’s worth a try.
