Bieber ticketed for speeding on freeway
Justin Bieber is used to attracting crowds. But he had at least one follower too many when somebody tailed him on a Los Angeles freeway, and it led to a speeding ticket.
Bieber was cited for driving in excess of 65 mph Friday, after calls came in complaining of a chase on U.S. 101, said Officer Ming Hsu of the California Highway Patrol. Bieber, 18, told officers he was being chased by paparazzi, and investigators confirmed he was being followed by at least one vehicle, Hsu said.
Blagojevich’s brother writing a book
The brother of imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is writing a book about his own three-year legal ordeal that resulted in prosecutors dropping all charges against him. Robert Blagojevich said the book is titled “How I Survived the Federal Justice System.”
They were initially tried together. Jurors couldn’t reach a verdict in Robert’s case and convicted Rod on one count.
Prosecutors dropped the case against Robert and retried Rod, who was convicted on several counts, including that he tried to sell or trade President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat. Rod Blagojevich is serving 14 years.
