Justin Bieber cleared of hit-and-run in paparazzi incident

Published June 18, 2013

Justin Bieber and his infamous Ferrari have had another brush with the law.

In this latest incident, initially reported as a hit-and-run on Carbuzz, Bieber was leaving the Laugh Factory comedy club Monday night on Sunset Boulevard, driving the same white Ferrari 458 that has been at the centre of an ongoing speeding investigation, when he was swarmed by photographers.

As he pulled away, his car bumped one of the photographers to the ground. Bieber continued to drive and left the scene.

The incident was initially reported as a hit-and-run, but Bieber insisted he didn’t realize he had struck someone.

Police have since investigated and cleared him of any wrongdoing, noting the injuries were not life-threatening. Investigators are also trying to determine whether the photographer was in the roadway.

A request for comment from Bieber’s publicist, Melissa Victor, wasn’t immediately returned.
