(Newser) – Should Justin Bieber's next concert be held behind bars? One Los Angeles City Councilman thinks so. Bieber was caught speeding on the freeway in his chrome Fisker Karma at 11:30am today, and witness to the scene was councilman/former LAPD motor officer Dennis Zine, who told TMZ, "Bieber was driving like a maniac. He was weaving in and out of traffic ... If I was on patrol, I would have arrested him for reckless driving."

According to Zine, Bieber was tearing down the 101 at speeds in excess of 100mph. But Bieber's manager contends that Zine "is just a councilman looking for a headline," and notes that Bieber was cited for going 80mph and was being pursued by paparazzi.

80 mph on the 101 isn't that excessive. However, the weaving in and out, that would be a problem, especially on a warm day heading west towards the ocean on a Saturday morning the 101 is usally backed up and would be hard to do. Actually, moving your vehicle very many feet at a time in that direction would be hard to do so he had to be going east bound to have been doing 80 mph on a Saturday morning. Had it been a weekday, he'd been screwed no matter what direction he tried. Why not just call 911 and tell them you are being dangerously pursued by the f'idiots and you dont' want to cause an accident to get away from them?
