Tell us if you've heard this one before: Justin Bieber heads out, drives like a jackass, gets pulled over in an expensive car ... and the cops realize he's not even behind the wheel.

History repeated itself once more yesterday, when Bieber's bud (and fellow bud fan) Lil Twist was pulled over in his Ferrari.

TMZ reports that mere days after it was revealed that Bieber was being investigated for continued reckless driving, cops stopped Biebs' hot white whip as it zoomed out of his Calabasas, Calif. gated community.

Twist was behind the wheel this time, and police let him off with a warning -- despite Twist repeatedly driving like a maniac in Bieber's vehicles.

This is the same Ferrari that Twist damaged when leaving a Four Seasons, having the hotel foot the bill for the repairs. (If you're keeping score, Lil Twist also banged up Bieber's Fisker Karma in a liquor store parking lot. A parking lot.)

It's one thing to give this idiot keys to Bieber's crib, but maybe the 'Baby' singer should reconsider handing over the keys to his wheels. Or at least be sure Keyshawn Johnson is on Neighborhood Watch that day.
