Justin Bieber could be smarter about a lot of things — namely, this time, lending his cars to friends.

Early this morning (July 11), friend and rapper Lil Twist was caught and arrested while driving Bieber’s car. Radio.com spoke with Steve Whitmore, a spokesperson from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, about Lil Twist’s arrest.

“About 3:26 this morning we saw him driving at a high rate of speed between 60 and 70 miles an hour in a 30 mile per hour construction zone,” Whitmore said. “He ran a red light, we pulled him over and promptly arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence.”

According to Whitmore, Lil Twist was driving a car registered in Bieber’s name. Twist was cited and released from jail as of 3 p.m. EST and a court date is set for September 11.

Shortly before his arrest, Lil Twist took to Twitter to note that he won’t be doing any interviews in the immediate future.

In May, it was rumored that Lil Twist was behind the wheel of Bieber’s Ferrari when it spotted and subsequently tailed by former NFL star Johnson near Bieber’s home in Calabasas, California. It later came out that Tyler, The Creator, not Twist, had been behind the wheel on that particular occasion.

Lil Twist, however, was also behind the wheel when a paparazzo was killed while following Bieber.

Bieber’s time in the headlines continues, as just yesterday a video leaked of him peeing in a restaurant kitchen‘s mop bucket before telling off former President Clinton.
