Justin Bieber pulled over by police and slapped with a fine for using his phone while driving

JUSTIN Bieber was rapped on the knuckles by police and slapped with a fine after he was caught using his phone while driving.

The Sorry singer, 23, was reprimanded while behind the wheel of a Mercedes G-Wagon in Beverly Hills, though it has not been confirmed whether he was making a call or text at the time.

Law enforcement sources told American gossip website TMZ he was pulled over and then issued a citation for using his phone while driving and was “calm and cooperative”.

He was said to have been issued a cell phone ticket which he accepted “without further incident”.

In Beverly Hills, the average cell phone ticket fine costs $162.

The incident came just a month after the Canadian pledged to stay on the right path and not to end up behind bars.

Justin has had a number of run-ins with the law in the past and shared two mugshots from his 2014 driving under the influence arrest on Instagram and vowed “never again” to find himself in a similar position.

The ‘Sorry’ singer captioned the Instagram post: “Mugshot #jailsnotacoolplacetobe, #notfun#neveragain (sic).”

Justin – who was just 19 at the time of his arrest – faced multiple charges when he was arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), resisting arrest, and driving with a suspended license when he was caught drag racing in Miami Beach in a yellow Lamborghini three years ago.

The chart-topper has had a number of issues with the law, paparazzi and fans during his career.

He caused further controversy this month when he jetted into Sydney to pray at controversial Sydney Hillsong Church at the centre of a child sex abuse scandal.

He left UK followers baffled a few days later as he sparked a series of bizzare rants on-stage after complaining he was suffering from a cold at the British Summertime Festival in London.

Justin apologised to his fans for having a “bad night” as he pushed through a head cold that threatened his performance.

At one point during the bizarre two hour stint on the stage, he started ranting about vaporub brand Vicks and declared that he was more used to using Olbas oil.

The star then poignantly added: “Life is worth living without Vicks in your nose.”
