LOS ANGELES - It seems that lately Justin Bieber has been giving Lindsay Lohan a bit of competition when it comes to the automobile department.
According to iRumors the Canadian singer has just found himself in a bit of hot water over talking on the cell phone while driving.
Vodka Vermicelli reported that a California motorcycle policeman identified as Officer Sterling Weizenbier stopped Bieber as he was driving on La Brea Tar Pits Boulevard.
Officer Weizenbier said that the perp (JB) was observed talking somewhat erratically. He was given a breathalyzer which he passed. He was asked to count from 19 to 1 backwards which he did, and he was then asked who the president of Cuba was.
Justin missed this one as he responded Fidel Castro. The president of Cuba is actually his brother Raul Castro.
Bieber became a little arrogant and asked the officer that he wanted his badge number. The officer responded that the number was on his badge which was clearly visible and added that it was in English.
Officer Weizenbier told him that it was illegal to talk on the cell phone while driving and that he could be fined as much as $4,970 plus made to pick up aluminum cans along the Pacific Coast Highway for 51 hours.
Bieber asked, "51 hours in a row."
"No doofus head, not in a row. Are you sure you're not from Wasilla, Alaska? The officer quipped.
Justin then told him that the reason why he was on the cell phone was because he was talking to a member of The California Highway Patrol Christmas Party Fund about where to drop off a check for $4,970 that he wanted to donate to their worthy cause.
Officer Weizenbier smiled. He thought for a moment and told Bieber that the state of California could take away his driver's license immediately.
Bieber raised his eyebrows and remarked, "I'm sorry officer, I inadvertently said that my donation was for $4,970 but it is actually for $6,970 which I would be glad to turn over to you so that you can present it to the proper authorities.
Justin then added that he would leave the payee line blank and that he could just stamp it or whatever.
The officer took the check. "Have a nice day Mr. Bieber and just remember to stay off the cell phone when driving."
"Gotcha bro." Bieber responded as he handed over the check for $6,970 and got back in his brand new $100,000 Fisker Karma Electric Hybrid Sports Car and drove off.
And Speaking of Sports. The Oklahoma City Thunder organization has just announced that they will not be moving the team to Tacoma after all.
