Dear Justin: Keyshawn Johnson would probably win in a fight

(Newser) – Justin Bieber's terrible driving may have finally gotten him into real trouble ... with the NFL. Former football star Keyshawn Johnson told police he saw Bieber's Ferrari speeding highway-style inside their gated California community over the holiday weekend ... while Johnson's 3-year-old daughter was playing in her driveway. He took her inside and went to confront Bieber at his home, where he says he saw the pop star parking the Ferrari—so he physically blocked the garage door from closing, and confronted Bieber, police say. But, according to the police report, "Mr. Bieber hurried into the home without talking to anybody." (TMZ's report has a "very, very, very livid" Johnson "chas[ing] after Bieber in his Prius.")

The LA County sheriff's department is investigating, after which the district attorney may file criminal charges, and Johnson is a witness in the case, the Los Angeles Times reports. Bieber's team says the singer wasn't driving through the neighborhood, but confirms he was the one parking the car. It's not the Biebs' first issue with his neighbors; prosecutors are still deciding whether to charge him for allegedly spitting on another one back in March—also after a complaint about his driving. But, unlike that neighbor, Johnson has NFL players as friends: Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson tweeted yesterday, "I live in Calabasas too and @justinbieber needs to slow his ass down." TMZ talked to yet more neighbors, who accuse Bieber of tooling around on a Segway (no big deal) while smoking pot (bigger deal); partying loudly at 3am; and often driving recklessly (in both his Ferrari and on his motorcycle), going so far as to almost hit one of his neighbors Sunday.
