CALABASAS ( — A rapper and member of Justin Bieber’s entourage was arrested early Thursday morning for driving under the influence in the San Fernando Valley, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Lil Twist, whose real name is Christopher Moore, was arrested just before 3:30 a.m. after running a red light at Parkway Calabasas and Camino Portal Road, an intersection outside the exclusive gated community where Bieber lives, according to spokesman Steve Whitmore.

The 20-year-old was driving Bieber’s 2012 chrome Fisker Karma at speeds of up to 70 mph when he was pulled over by deputies.

Moore was booked at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station and his bail was set at $5,000, according to jail records.

The car was towed and impounded, Whitmore said.
