Justin Bieber was given a speeding ticket this morning.
The 'Boyfriend' star was pulled over by police after reportedly being spotted driving at over 100 miles per hour in his silver Fisker Karma sports car.

Justin Bieber sure loves the open road. The 18-year-old pop phenom was pulled over on LA's 101 freeway Friday morning for reportedly going over 100 miles per hour, reports CBS2/KCAL9. The star claims to have been in a paparazzi chase on the freeway. Bieber's team said he was going 80 miles per hour.
Regardless of speed, Bieber's $100K hybrid, chromed and super-shiny Fisker Karma has facilitated a very close relationship between him and the
police force. The Biebs was pulled over at least three times just last year: (1) for making an unsafe turn, (2) for cutting off a highway patrolman and (3, our favorite) for just plain looking too young to drive. And yet, for each violation, the star must have turned on the charm because he reportedly drove away with only warnings. California
Bieber was driving like a maniac. He was weaving in and out of traffic. There was hardly any space between cars as he weaved from lane to lane.
If I was on patrol, I would have arrested him for reckless driving. I was going 60 and he drove by me like he was in a rocket ship. He was a maniac
Looks like he wasn't so lucky this time. The LA Times reports that Bieber was cited for driving in a "reckless manner." Given the recent strange story of celeb autographs in exchange for getting off the hook, we can take a guess at what the late
police officer Roy D. Garrett would have asked of Bieber in exchange for no ticket. Beverly Hills
The car was bought for him as a present for his 18th birthday earlier this year, and presented to him by his manager, Scooter Braun, on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'.
Justin was given a speeding ticket for breaking the speed limit by driving at 80 miles per hour.
