Justin Bieber’s best friend Lil Twist has been arrested for an alleged DUI in one of the singer’s cars.
The rapper, whose real name is Christopher Lynn Moore, was driving one of Bieber’s chrome Fisker-Karma, was pulled over for speeding at 03:26 am on Thursday along a Calabasas road leading to the gated community where Bieber lives in Los Angeles, TMZ report.
The 20-year-old was arrested and and taken to a nearby police station and booked on a charge of driving under the influence.
According to the gossip site, Lil Twist seemed to be under the sway of a substance but did not appear to be drunk. The site’s implication is that the Dallas native may have taken drugs.
According to L.A. County Sheriff’s department spokesperson Steve Whitmore, the rapper was seen driving between 60 and 70 mph in a 30 mph construction zone and running a red light.
During the stop, Whitmore said officers smelled marijuana and arrested the Lil Twist on suspicion of DUI.
Whitmore also confirmed the MC was driving a car registered in Bieber’s name.
This isn’t Twist’s first entanglement with the law in one of his famous friend’s high performance cars.
On May 29, the Young Money rapper was pulled over by police for allegedly exceeding the speed limit as he left Bieber’s Calabasas neighborhood.
He was driving Bieber’s infamous white Ferrari at the time and was let off with a warning by the officers.
In March, the Bad Decisions artist crashed Bieber’s Fisker Karma into cement poles by a wall of a San Fernando liqueur store.
The disaster trail extends even further back.
On January 1, Lil Twist was pulled over by traffic police while driving Bieber’s white Ferrari on Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles.
During that incident, a paparazzo mistakenly thinking Bieber was driving stopped to take pictures and was hit by a passing car as he returned to his vehicle. The photographer, Chris Guerra, died later that same evening at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
After the tragedy, Bieber released a statement calling for greater paparazzi regulation and expressed condolences to the paparazzo’s family.
Three days later, pictures surfaced of Lil Twist and Bieber smoking what appeared to be a blunt in a Newport Beach hotel room with friends. Bieber later apologized for the incident on Saturday Night Live, while ‘in character.’
More recently, Lil Twist was involved in a filmed speeding incident in Calabasas last month with rapper Lil Za, who is also a friend of Bieber’s. Both young men were driving the “Boyfriend” singer’s cars at the time.
This latest incident with Lil Twist comes after TMZ released video footage of Bieber peeing into a mop bucket in the kitchen of a New York City nightclub, before spraying a photograph of the 42nd president with chemical cleaning fluid and yelling “F**K Bill Clinton!”
It’s believed Lil Twist was one of the “wild kids” cheering on the mayhem.
The rapper, who accompanied Bieber on several dates of the last leg of the Believe world tour, recently announced that his upcoming single “TWERK” will feature the Canadian star and Miley Cyrus.
