Justin Bieber’s alleged reckless driving around his Los Angeles neighbourhood was the subject of an angry online rant by former American football star Keyshawn Johnson Friday.
Justin Bieber switched seats with his passenger to avoid being busted for suspicion of reckless driving, according to an angry neighbour.
The 19-year-old pop star is reportedly under investigation after residents in his gated Los Angeles community called police to complain about his alleged speeding over Memorial Day weekend.
It has been alleged Justin has reached speeds of 100mph in the area, with several residents showing concern for the safety of their children and pets on multiple occasions.
Earlier reports suggested former American football star Keyshawn Johnson was one of the neighbours who had filed a formal complaint in the latest incident.
The retired athlete has now broken his silence and is seen lashing out at the star in a video posted by TMZ Friday.
The 40-year-old accused Justin of endangering his one-year-old and three-year-old children.
“You got a 19-year-old kid, feeling entitled, speeding up and down the highway. That’s why all the neighbors is mad,” he said. “You can’t do that.”
Keyshawn said he witnessed Justin behind the wheel of his white Ferrari as he sped through the community.
He claims the star switched seats with an African-American passenger before they pulled into the garage.
“I got a chance to see him driving the car. He was sitting in the driver’s seat,” he said.
The former football star also casts blame on Justin’s entourage.
“You’ve got a bunch of handlers running around kissing you’re ass,” Keyshawn continued.
“He and his handlers, his goons, whatever they are to him, they have to protect him. At the end of the day all I want to do is protect my kids,” he said, adding that Justin will now have to “answer to the DA’s office and not me”.
It’s not the first of Justin’s legal woes linked to his alleged reckless driving.
X17 Online reports he was pulled over for another traffic violation earlier this week.
He also became the subject of a separate investigation earlier this year after a neighbour claimed the star assaulted him during a confrontation about the issue outside of Justin’s home.
