When the One Direction boys arrived in Perth this week, as perusal they where being chased by hundreds of fans and for the boys safety their driver sped off and went though 3 red lights!
The local police soon found out about this and where not happy at all and started to decided weather the 1D boys broke the law or not.
Western Australia Assistant Commissioner Nick Anticich said the following:
"It's unacceptable behavior. It breaches the law and we will deal with every person in the same way. By virtue of the fact that they are rock stars is not a license to break any laws or be any different from anyone else. One Direction they may be, but the only direction in relation to this type offending will be to the courts!"
The boys are not normally the ones doing the driving so really it was nothing to do with them so you cant really blame them.
Now 1D's spokesperson has said the following:
"The primary focus of the security team is always fan safety.
Despite earlier reports that the band's convoy of 3 Mercedes vans had ignored sets of red traffic lights on Great Eastern Highway while en route to the hotel, it was actually a five-car convoy of Hyundai vans, the convoy stopped so that One Direction’s security team could ask fans to obey road rules after becoming concerned about their dangerous driving which ended in two fans running red lights.
I can confirm that they did indeed pull over at a petrol station, where upon they spoke to the fans explaining concerns about their safety and dangerous driving.
The band’s head driver, five-strong security team and tour manager all reiterated the same thing – fans were driving erratically as the band tried to get from Perth airport to their hotel.
the only time they have gone through red lights is under a police escort and this was done in Adelaide."
