(Newser) – Looks like LA councilman Dennis Zine wasn't the only one worried about the Biebs' driving yesterday. Turns out 9 other drivers called 911 to complain about Justin Bieber's reckless ways on the Hollywood Freeway before CHP officers pulled him over, TMZ reports. The singer insists he was only doing 80mph, but Zine says it looked like 100mph—and he calls that estimate "conservative."

TMZ says paparazzi drivers were hunting Bieber, and Zine acknowledges that celebrity life is no picnic—but "any time you do 90, the paparazzi are going to go 90," he tells the LA Times. Another little tidbit: A source tells TMZ that a member of Bieber's security team was in the car and allowed the 18-year-old to gun it on a busy freeway. Check out the Biebs' silver roadster being pulled over.

Who was the idiot who got him the car? Who was the idiot that was in the car & let him drive that way? Take both of their lic's away,go to jail, the paparazzi put them in another part of jail. Then take the car to a crusher film it & put it on Utube I bet it will make millions. What a bunch of loosers. Lenett

Saw him on West Coast Customs getting a hot Cadillac CTS coupe, all blacked out. His fan base is going to be sad if he becomes a quadriplegic when he has his smash-up. Wear a helmet Biebs.
