Justin Bieber‘s Ferrari is currently in repair shop ICU, after his good buddy, Lil Twist, bottomed out as he peeled out of the Four Seasons driveway in Beverly Hills … and we’ve learned the hotel is shockingly footing the bill.
As we first reported … Justin and Twist were staying at the Four Seasons on New Year’s Day, when Twist took the car for a spin on the 405 Freeway and got stopped by the CHP. As the officer dealt with Twist, a paparazzo who was taking pics of the scene was struck and killed by a motorist.
Turns out … when Twist left the Four Seasons driveway, he caused $8,000 to $10,000 worth of damage to the whip. It’s pretty amazing, because that driveway doesn’t really have any hidden dangers.
Nonetheless … sources tell TMZ … the hotel has agreed to pay the bill to maintain its lucrative relationship with Justin.
Like he doesn’t have enough money … and by the way, why isn’t Twist paying?
A rep for the Four Seasons had no comment.

Four times in less than three hours, troopers stopped the Chrysler sedan as it rocketed across southern Minnesota at speeds topping 110 miles per hour, its driver carrying a small amount of marijuana but no proof of required car insurance.
The stops earned Lorretta Lacy, 49, a handful of tickets and cost her the drug stash as she raced across two states to get to a granddaughter’s middle-school dance in Racine, Wis.
The serial police stops began shortly before 2:30 p.m. Friday on Interstate 90 about 10 miles east of Jackson. Witnesses reported her speeding and zipping in and out of traffic, according to the State Patrol.
Lacy, of Sioux Falls, S.D., was clocked at 112 mph in her 1999 Chrysler LHS as she passed a state trooper, then was stopped and ticketed for speeding, no proof of insurance and possession of marijuana, said Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske. A “very, very small amount” of marijuana was confiscated, Roeske said.

It may have worked 11 other times, but it looks like a Halifax man’s luck at the pumps has finally run out.
Halifax Regional Police arrested a 68-year-old man at 8:10 a.m. Friday as he was filling up his vehicle at the Esso gas station at 3600 Dutch Village Rd.
The man stands accused of gassing up and dashing away without paying the service station 11 times since Oct. 24.
On that fall day, police responded to what they called a “gas and go” and said the culprit was caught on camera.
They allege he did the same thing 10 more times until staff spotted him Friday and called police.
The man was arrested without incident and no gas was stolen from the service station in the latest incident, force spokesman Const. Pierre Bourdages said.

A traffic stop led to the discovery of 92 pounds of marijuana and the arrest of a Bellport woman in North Bellmore Saturday night.
According to detectives, around 6 p.m., an unmarked First Precinct police car observed Mizzie Artis, 27, of Bellport, operating a 1999 Hyundai eastbound on Columbus Avenue while talking on a cell phone and not wearing a seat belt.
Police then observed Artis drive to Armand Street where she met with a male subject in a minivan. As officers drove by both vehicles to further observe, the male subject fled the scene in the van, police said.
Artis drove away and failed to stop at a stop sign and did not signal when turning, police said. Officers stopped Artis and, upon approaching the car, observed two large cardboard boxes in the auto. Officers also detected an odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle.
K-9 officers responded to the scene and performed a narcotic search of the vehicle. The cardboard boxes in the front seat had a positive alert for narcotics, police said. Two additional boxes were recovered from the trunk containing marijuana, bringing the total approximate weight to 92 pounds.
Artis is being charged with criminal possession of marijuana in the first degree and several vehicle and traffic law infractions. She will be arraigned on Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
MANTECA, Calif. — When a man selling a 1987 Chrysler 5th Avenue with 64,000 miles on it for $2,200 agreed to ride along with a potential buyer on a test drive, he had no idea he was in for the ride of his life.
According to KTXL, it all began when the woman, later identified as Gail Castle, asked the Manteca, Calif. native, who asked not to be identified, if she could take his car for a spin.
“She said ‘would you trust me to drive the car?’” the Manteca man said. “I said, ‘I wouldn’t trust you to back it out of the driveway.’”
They both got in the car, with the Manteca man taking the wheel. He thought it was going to be a short drive down the block. But he says Castle eventually asked him to take her to the bank, where she would get the cash to buy the car.
He did, taking Castle to the Bank of America in the small northern California city. The bank was crowded, so the man says he was surprised when Castle came out just a few minutes later, flashing him a purse stuffed with bills.
They headed back to the man’s home to complete the deal. But they only got so far.
“I turned my left signal the other side of the cross walk here, and that’s when the sirens went off. I thought, ‘what in the world is going on,’” the man.
The Manteca Bulletin captured a picture of police arresting Castle. But before they even got that point, the man had a tough choice to make.
“She said, ‘Don’t open that door, I’ve got a gun.’” the Manteca man said. “And (a police officer) hollered at me again, ‘Open that door and come out with your hands up.’ I thought I’d rather take a chance on her shooting me in the back.”
Police say they never recovered a weapon from Castle. She was arrested for bank robbery, elder abuse, false imprisonment, and resisting arrest.
MIDDLETON, N.H. —Tips from WMUR viewers led investigators to two men suspected in connection with a road rage incident in Middleton. James Hartford and Justin Barnes, both from Farmington, should appear in court Thursday to face charges of conspiracy to commit criminal threatening.
Investigators say the 17-year-old Hartford and 22-year-old Barnes tried to run a driver off the road after arguing with that driver and another man. Police say the argument started in Farmington but continued into Middleton.
At some point, according to investigators, the incident involved a chain saw, a bat, and a wooden pole with a knife attached. Officers say the confrontation ended when the victim pulled into the parking lot of the Farmington Police Department.
A third man, Joshua Hussey from Dover, was arrested last week.
A hapless journalist is facing bankruptcy after he blew up a $2 million Porsche during a test drive, The Sun reports.
Mark Hales was at the wheel of a replica Porsche 917 owned by veteran Formula One ace David Piper, when he over-revved it causing the engine to explode.
Hales, 62, claims he made a gentleman’s agreement with Piper that the 81-year-old would cover the cost of any mechanical damage caused during the session.
The multi-millionaire denied making the deal, sued Hales for $76,000 in damages – and the High Court has ruled in his favor.
Hales, who writes for Octane and Auto Italia magazines, has been left with a bill of $76,000 to cover repairs to the car, plus $100,000 in legal costs.
Speaking after the ruling, the “devastated” journalist said: “I’ve sold everything to pay my lawyers and if he chooses to enforce the findings it is bankruptcy for me.”
