Justin Bieber a Menace in Calabasas – Reckless Driving, Smoking Marijuana, Assault

Justin Bieber a Menace in Calabasas – Reckless Driving, Smoking Marijuana, Assault

As of recent, pop icon, Justin Bieber, has become a terror in his Calabasas California neighborhood.   Police are becoming all too familiar with the singer as they have been called to investigate accusations of reckless driving, smoking marijuana on public sidewalks, and assault on a neighbor.

Back in March, Justin Bieber was confronted by one of his prestigious neighbors, Jeff Schwarts an auto mogul, for his ongoing reckless driving and driving at speeds around 100 mph down Calabasas streets.  In response, Justin allegedly assaulted Jeff by spitting on him and threatening to kill him.  Jeff’s wife, Suzie Schwartz shared her Bieber disgust with reporters, “He’s a punk.  He thinks he’s invincible.”  Police have finished their investigation and now it’s on the LA county District Attorney’s office to file assault charges.

During this past holiday weekend, JB managed to piss off former NFL superstar neighbor Keyshawn Johnson by reckless driving throughout their gated community in his Ferrari.  Keyshawn, who was driving a Prius, reportedly followed Justin to his home and blocked the Ferrari in the driveway with his fuel-efficient car.  Keyshawn got out of his car to confront Beibs about his dangerous reckless driving, but Bieber ran scared into his home and wouldn’t come out. Other witnesses observed the same erratic driving and verified Justin was the driver and it appeared he was high on marijuana. Keyshawn Johnson is fired up, stating Justin is “playing with dynamite.”  Seriously concerned for his children’s safety, Keyshawn plans on working with law enforcement to end Bieber’s reckless driving and menacing ways.

Additionally over the weekend, neighbors supposedly saw Justin and a friend smoking marijuana while driving Segways side by side, right in front of neighborhood kids!

Community members are sick of Bieber’s juvenile behavior and banding together, irritated neighbor Eric Dickerson, NFL Hall of Famer, sent tweets of “Justin Bieber needs to slow his ass down.” The community plans on initiating new rules through the homeowner’s board to discourage Justin’s dangerous illegal ways.

Justin needs to grow up fast and slow way down to 25 mph!

Initiative 502- Legalization of Marijuana, what’s happening?

Initiative 502- Legalization of Marijuana, what’s happening?

A lot of people are wondering, just as I am, with the implementation of the legalized recreational marijuana system passed by Washington voters with Initiative 502 what’s going to happen?  As a DUI attorney/ criminal attorney I’m especially interested in having a pulse on what’s going on.  As of January 18, 2013, the Washington State Liquor Control Board is now seeking proposals for marijuana consulting services in: product and industry knowledge, product quality standards and testing, product usage and consumption validation and product regulation.  This is good news.  It’s great to see progress and the State requesting consultants to assist in Initiative 502 implementation.  Times have definitely changed here in Washington.  What remains to be seen is will the change be considered a positive one for all of us.

As a Seattle attorney who represents those accused of Driving Under the Influence DUI/drunk driving cases I’m interested in how the State will prosecute such cases as it relates to marijuana consumption.  The real issue in Marijuana DUI cases is whether or not the driver’s ability to drive was affected by consuming marijuana.  Factors to consider of signs of intoxication would include but not limited to, active components of THC in a driver’s system, time of last consumption in relation to time of driving, and the driving observed.  Just as with alcohol consumption, marijuana consumption and it’s effects on individuals vary considerably.  As a result, I think marijuana DUI cases are tough to defend but even tougher to prosecute.
