CALABASAS, Calif. (AP) - The rapper known as Lil Twist has been arrested for investigation of driving under the influence after being stopped in California while he was behind the wheel of Justin Bieber's luxury sports car.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore says 20-year-old Christopher Moore was pulled over around 3:30 a.m. Thursday on a Calabasas road leading to a gated community where Bieber lives.
Whitmore says Moore was driving a 2012 Fisker registered to the pop star.
Authorities say Moore was driving between 60 and 70 mph in an area that has a 30 mph speed limit because of construction.
Investigators think Moore may have been under the influence of marijuana. Bail was set at $5,000 for the misdemeanor offense.
An email seeking comment was sent to his record label.
