For a guy who has only had his license for three years, Justin Bieber has had his fair share of car troubles. Between fender benders, speeding tickets and a car chase that resulted in the death of a paparazzi photographer , Bieber might consider getting a driver in light of his latest car-tastrophe.
Case in point: on Monday night, former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson angrily chased down Bieber’s Ferrari after he spotted it blazing by. According to TMZ. Johnson was leaving a party inside his exclusive gated community in Calabasas, California when he saw the car.
After taking his child home, Johnson reportedly chased Bieber’s car until he arrived at the singer’s home, where he blocked the Ferrari in the driveway and attempted to confront the singer. Bieber reportedly ran inside his home and would not come out to speak to Johnson. The site also reported that at least two other people called police on Monday night to report a car matching the description of Bieber’s driving at a “startling high rate of speed.” The site reported that Bieber refused to speak to officers when they visited his home to discuss the matter.
An unnamed source told Radar Online that it was not Bieber, but pal Tyler, the Creator who was behind the wheel of the Ferrari; TMZ claimed it was definitely Bieber driving the car.
A spokesperson for Bieber had no comment on the reports. At press time, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s department could not be reached for comment on the inquiry at Bieber’s home or the speeding reports.
If the Radar report is true, it wouldn’t be the first time Bieber made headlines after one of his friends was taking his vehicle for a spin. At the time of the deadly paparazzo incident, Justin’s buddy Lil Twist was reportedly navigating JB’s Ferrari.
In March, Bieber got into a verbal spat with a neighbor in his gated community after the man complained that the pop star was driving the new Ferrari recklessly. According to reports, the neighbor approached Bieber and the interaction got heated, ending with accusations that Bieber spit on the man, which could land him a battery charge.
And last July, after Bieber was cited for speeding on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles, an L.A. City Councilman demanded that the singer lose his license and face arrest for driving like a “maniac.”
Bieber had not commented on the incident on his Twitter feed at press time.
I live in Calabasas too and @justinbieber needs to slow his ass down.

One person who did comment was another former NFL star, Eric Dickerson, who tweeted, “I live in Calabasas too and @justinbieber needs to slow his ass down.”
But Beliebers remained supportive of the “Baby” singer on Twitter, continuing to show their love for their pop star.
