Justin Bieber and cars just don't mix.

The 19-year-old's Ferrari was pulled over for speeding outside of his gated community in Calabasas, California, on Wednesday.

The driver -- who was not Bieber -- was not ticketed, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said. Multiple reports say it was in fact Bieber's pal Lil Twist behind the wheel.

But shouldn't Bieber know by now that it's not the best idea to lend his friend Lil Twist his cars?

Twist, a 20-year-old rapper, has not exactly taken care of Bieber's luxe rides in the past. This year alone, Lil Twist racked up two reckless driving tickets and even was involved in a hit-and-run while driving Bieber's vehicles. He was also the one in the driver's seat when a paparazzo, who thought he was following Bieber's car, was struck and killed by another motorist as he snapped photos.

The Biebs himself isn't a much better driver -- or neighbor.

On Monday, two people who live near Bieber witnessed the teen idol driving at high speeds through neighborhood streets, according to the L.A. Times.

One of them was former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, whose 3-year-old daughter was playing in Johnson's driveway. Johnson went to Bieber's home to confront him as he watched the singer pull into his garage, but Bieber refused to discuss the incident and went inside. He also hasn't talked to police about the matter.

An L.A. Times source close to the investigation said Bieber's team insists he wasn't the one driving during the Sunday incident, and that he only was behind the wheel long enough to back the car into the garage.

Bieber's publicist did not immediately respond to omg!'s request for comment.

Officials are currently determining whether there's enough evidence to charge Bieber with a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving, as well as battery for an incident in March when he allegedly spit on a neighbor.

Not surprisingly, that occurrence was also sparked by Bieber and his boys speeding through the streets.
