Justin Bieber's bad luck with his Ferrari continued when the white sports car was pulled over last night on Sunset Boulevard. Fortunately the pop star was nowhere to be found, but instead his friend and rapper, Lil' Za, was the one behind the wheel. Bieber's friend was handcuffed and placed in a squad car by the Police officers who pulled him over. The 19-year-old rapper did not have a driver's license. Lil' Za (real name Xavier Smith) was accompanied by an unnamed female acquaintance on the drive. Smith was driven to a nearby gas station where an SUV was waiting for him and the girl. Justin Bieber's Ferrari was driven home by one of the people who came to pick up the friends.
This is the second incident involving Justin's $200,000 Ferrari. This same car was involved in the death of 29-year-old freelance photographer, Chris Guerra, just this past New Year's Day. Guerra was hit by a car while trying to snap a picture of the Ferrari, which was pulled over for a routine traffic stop. Again, Bieber was not behind the wheel but instead another rapper friend, Lil' Twist, was in the driver's seat. Lil' Twist had also recently bottomed-out the Ferrari while peeling out of the Four Season's in Beverly Hills. In order to maintain a positive relationship with the pop singer, the famous hotel covered the $10,000 bill even though the young rapper was to blame. Another instance involving this notorious white Ferrari occurred in November when Justin Bieber (yes, he was behind the wheel for once) made an unsafe left turn and was pulled over. His registration was also expired.
Last July, Bieber was pulled over in his $100,000 Fisker Karma after reportedly driving recklessly and exceeding speeds of 65 MPH along a Los Angeles freeway. Justin has been known to lend this car to yet another friend, 23-year-old performer Sean Kingston. Bieber also has a custom Cadillac CTS-V, made to look like the Batmobile, which has also been pulled over on occasion. In October of 2011, the singer cut off a police cruiser as he was leading a three-car motorcade of his friends. Only two months later, made yet another unsafe left turn. These two instances only warranted him verbal warnings.
It seems like the 18-year-old pop sensation can't seem to catch a break with his insanely expensive vehicles. There seems to be one really easy solution to at least part of this problem: Don't let your friends drive your crazy cars, Justin! Also maybe stay away from friends who are trying to be rappers with some version of the "Lil'" moniker. That stuff is played out, Za and Twist. Maybe Justin should look into hiring a chauffer in order to avoid the constant car trouble. There are plenty of ways for Justin Bieber to avoid the attention from police and all that comes with it, but we all know that he probably won't change.
