Justin Bieber wasn’t speeding … so that makes it okay then?

Justin Bieber

Yesterday, we found out that Justin Bieber was high on weed and Alprazolam (Xanax) when he was pulled over and arrested in Florida. But that’s okay, because based on speed reports from a GPS in his car, he was never drag racing as we originally thought. See? He wasn’t drag racing while high! He was just driving at normal speeds while high! And everyone knows you can drive impaired as long as you just drive really slowly. TMZ reports …

TMZ broke the story … Miami Beach cops claimed they noticed Bieber and his buddy Khalil (who drove a red Ferrari) drag racing and that’s why they were stopped. Cops claimed they were going between 55 and 60 MPH. But the GPS on Justin’s car records speed when the car accelerates quickly. Take a look at the read-out. At 4:07 AM Justin left the club and zoomed away … reaching a maximum speed of 44 MPH. Two minutes later the GPS registered at a max speed of 27 MPH. Here’s why the read-out is so significant. Cops claim they noticed the drag race on the 2600 block of Pine Tree Drive. Bieber came to a stop and was then arrested on the 4100 block. The 27 MPH read out is on the 3700 block … smack in the middle of the supposed drag race. Mind you … 27 MPH is UNDER the 30 MPH speed limit.

So yay I guess! Justin wasn’t drag racing! You can knock one brick from the wall of “NO” that Justin is a currently facing, but I don’t think that automatically undoes all the other dumb sh!t he did. It would be like if you were accused of stabbing someone while high on meth, and then it turned out you never did meth. That outlying factor does’t overrule the larger crime here.
