Lil Twist

While Justin Bieber prepares for a DUI trial, his sidekick, Lil Twist, was dealing with his own DUI charges… up until today. Lil Twist managed to have his Los Angeles DUI charges dropped on Tuesday, July 15, 2014.

A year ago, Lil Twist (real name Christopher Moore) was driving in Bieber’s super fancy Fisker Karma en route to Bieber’s pad in Calabasas, CA. Police pulled him over for driving 69 mph in a 30 mph zone. Furthermore, police witnessed Lil Twist fail to stop at a red light.

When officers approached the vehicle, they could smell marijuana on his person. Furthermore, the arresting officer stated that Lil Twist’s eyes were bloodshot and his speech was “deliberate and lethargic.”

Officers also found a blunt in the car.

Lil Twist did admit to smoking marijuana about a half an hour prior to the arrest. He proceeded to take a field sobriety test in which the prosecution described his performance as “moderately bad.”

Typically, when an officer suspects you to be under the influence of drugs or marijuana, he or she will measure the amount of drugs in your system in the form of a blood or urine test. This usually occurs right away so officers can get an accurate measure of how much drugs were in your system when you were behind the wheel.

However, in the case of Lil Twist, police didn’t measure the THC (the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana) until an hour and 46 minutes after the arrest. The THC level in Lil Twist’s system was so low that the District Attorney’s criminologist was unable to testify that Lil Twist was high when he was behind the wheel.

With this lack of proper evidence, Lil Twist managed to get his DUI charges thrown out. However, he may still be facing charges for speeding, failing to stop at a red light and possessing less than an ounce of marijuana.
