Dun, dun, dun! Bad news. According to TMZ, Lil Twist, one of Justin Bieber’s closest friends, has been arrested for driving under the influence in Calabasas, CA. As if anything recently attached to Bieber could be good news.
The 20-year-old rapper was pulled over and arrested yesterday after reportedly driving Bieber’s beloved Fisker Karma while under the influence of marijuana. Law enforcement reported to TMZ that Lil Twist was originally pulled over for speeding on Parkway Calabasas at 3:30 AM (shocker: he was driving to Bieber’s house). Officers primarily believed that the rapper, while not drunk, was under the influence of some substance, now confirmed to be marijuana. He allegedly had a lit blunt as well as more marijuana in the car at the time of the incident. He was then arrested and taken to a nearby police station, TMZ reported. What a good influence, Bieber! No pun intended.
What does Bieber have to say about all of this? Well, for starters, the 19-year-old singer considers him a true friend and will not desert him, even though members of Bieber’s camp reported to TMZ that they have begged him to kick Lil Twist and other friend/rapper Lil Za out of his Calabasas home as well as restrict them from driving his cars. Sources also told TMZ that Bieber desperately wants to keep Lil Twist and Lil Za in his life because he finally has close friends that are close in age to him. While he may be a menace, at least Bieber is a loyal friend.
