Justin Bieber's car is once again in the news.

The pop star's Ferrari, which is the same vehicle that a paparazzo attempted to photograph last month before he was fatally struck by an oncoming car, was pulled over by cops early Friday morning in Los Angeles, E! News confirms.

Per eyewitnesses, the singer wasn't behind the wheel of the car, which was being driven by a man while a woman sat in the passenger's seat.

The incident happened at around 12:30 a.m. along Sunset Boulevard, and the driver was purportedly cited for driving without a license.

Subsequently, another man arrived in an SUV and parked at a nearby gas station so he could pick up Bieber's Ferrari and its two occupants.

E! News has reached out to Bieber's camp for comment.

On New Year's Day, freelance photographer Chris Guerra, 29, was killed when he was hit by a car along Sepulveda Boulevard while attempting to snap a pic of Bieber's Ferrari, which had been pulled over for a routine traffic stop but was not being driven by the singer.
