Justin Bieber cited for speeding through Beverly Hills

Justin Bieber found himself in more legal hot water on Saturday night (29Aug15) after he was reportedly clocked speeding through Beverly Hills in a new Ferrari.

A day before his MTV Video Music Awards performance, the pop star was in town showing off his latest car when a fleet of police officers pulled him over.


TMZ.com reports Bieber was cited and allowed to drive off after promising the cops he'd slow it down on the roads.


The singer was previously reprimanded for allegedly driving sports cars around his former Calabasas, California community at top speeds, and he was arrested in Miami, Florida at the beginning of 2014 and charged with drag racing and driving under the influence.


The settled that legal drama several months later after agreeing to pay $50,000 (GBP31,250) to a youth charity and pleading guilty to careless driving and resisting arrest charges.


Prosecutors dropped the drunk driving charge as part of the plea agreement, which also required Bieber to seek anger management counseling and attend a drink-driving program.
