Maybe it's not Justin Bieber who is dangerous behind the wheel, but it's his cars that are inherently destined to have encounters with the law. Maybe? Well, early Friday morning, a deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's West Hollywood Station pulled over an man driving a white Ferrari registered to the Biebs.

The traffic stop happened at around 12:10 a.m. on Sunset Boulevard at Fairfax Avenue, according to City News Service, and was initiated because of the Ferrari's tinted windows. The driver has been identified in the media as Bieber's pal "Lil Ze."

The windows weren't ultimately the only problem: Neither the driver or his female passenger had a valid driver's license. Lil Ze was reportedly cited for driving without a license.

The Ferrari didn't get the ol' tow, though. Another man showed up in an SUV, drove the Ferrari to a gas station, then gave Lil Ze and the passenger a ride. That lift-giver returned to pick up the Ferrari from the gas station at about 1:30 a.m.

It's not clear why Bieber allowed an unlicensed driver to take the wheel of his car.
