As we reported earlier, Bieber and Kingston were out driving Sean’s convertible Rolls Royce Friday while taking video of them playing pranks on various establishments.
First, they purchased a Frosty from a Wendy’s and tried to return it to a Burger King. Then they pulled off a quick “double coning” while almost hitting a wall in their $400,000 ride before running into a bit of trouble with the law.

The official word Friday night was that Bieber called the cops HIMSELF outside a South Beach T.G.I.F. Restaurant after fans spotted them and started to crowd around the teen idol’s car.
But now we are learning that that was not the whole story.
A witness and employee of T.G.I.F. told HollywoodLife,
“An undercover police officer was driving behind Justin and Sean Kingston. He pulled them over in front of the restaurant on Ocean Drive because he thought it was strange that this young kid was driving a brand new convertible Rolls-Royce.
While he was pulled over, people started recognizing that it was Justin Bieber and they started to surround the car. The police officer told the crowd to back away and then instructed Justin to drive off.”
As it turns out, the undercover Police officer was following the Rolls-Royce because he had noticed the pranking and didn’t recognize the driver and felt he looked “extremely young” to be driving such an expensive car.
He pulled them over for a well-being and suspicious vehicle check.
Word is after the cop realized it was Justin Bieber everybody had a good laugh and the cops helped to disperse the crowd that had gathered before sending the singer on his way.
We think if you’re going to go out and play pranks - a better idea would have been to NOT use a $400,000 Rolls as that may be a bit conspicuous.
Bieber was in Miami with his girlfriend Selena Gomez while she was performing a show as part of her “We Own the Night” concert tour.
This was the first time Sean Kingston had been seen in public since his tragic Jet-Ski accident a few months back that left him in intensive care for weeks.

But this latest run in with the cops seems to be playing into the hands of critics who say Justin has changed and is no longer that little clean-cut teen idol that used to laugh and smile all the time.
Observers say his sudden fame and tremendous financial success has started to affect his personality.
Just last week there were photos released of Justin and his dad Jeremy getting matching Hebrew Jesus tattoos under their left arm.

The two also inked matching five pointed star tattoos on their left elbow a few months back as well.
Not that there is anything wrong with that, it’s just that his fans were not expecting him to get inked up and start getting pulled over by cops and flipping off the paparazzi at such a young age.
Coning is harmless – and it could be worse. He could be doing crack with Lindsay Lohan or smoking weed with Snoop Dog.
We say let him be, and hope he has the right people surrounding him while at the same time giving him enough space to be a kid.
