Justin Bieber

Rogue Paparazzo

Nearly KILLED Me

7/8/2012 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0706_justin_bieber_bauer_articleJustin Bieber has filed a harassment complaint against one of the paparazzi who chased him down an L.A. freeway Friday -- claiming the guy was a maniac on the road ... and put several lives in danger.

A CHP officer dropped by Justin's music video shoot downtown Friday (above) -- and law enforcement sources tell us, the officer was there to take Justin's statement after the singer filed the complaint.

We're told Justin originally reached out to police following Friday's high speed chase -- because the photog in question had been extremely aggressive on the road ... much worse than the other photogs.

As we reported, the highway chase reached speeds exceeding 100mph -- with some paps even riding the shoulder to keep up with Bieber.

Cops eventually stopped the 18-year-old singer, citing him for speeding -- and we're told, that's when the Biebs filed the complaint, giving police the offending pap's license plate number.

Funny enough -- the pap in question was at Bieber's music video shoot this afternoon when the CHP officer dropped by ... snapping away.

We're told cops took the pap's statement too -- and are now investigating him for harassment.

Filing a harassment complaint against a paparazzi (pap smear), is failed attempt to distract people from the real issue -- Bieber should not be driving. If you or I drove like he had, we would be posting bail and preparing for our arraignment.

First of all, that young man needs to take off that silly hat and those glasses before he speaks to authorities. His legal counsel needs to be replaced if they have not yet informed him of that. Second, he needs to take precautionary measures for the future...tiny little cameras are available for purchase that can be installed ANYWHERE. If the paps are really harassing you that heavily, time to show the public. If not, be prepared to be held responsible for your actions young man. That's that.

You've got to be f***ing kidding me. This little kid drives 100MPH weaving in and out of traffic and not only does he blame somebody else, but the cops buy it? Only in California.

This kid is a liar. Even so there is NO REASON to speed like he did. He was out trying to have fun, got caught and now he is lying.

Is it normal for the police to drop into someone's workplace to take a statement?

Just like a kid to think its better to endanger everyone around him than to allow som pop to take pictures. No excuse for driving that fast. Yank his license for reckless driving.

the paps are not going to kill you. there is no reason to drive this fast. he is taken a leaf out of the lindsay lohan school of denying every single thing she ever did or happened to her was not her fault. i was sticking up for him yesterday for everyone coming down so hard on him because he's young but i would have more respect for him if he owned up that he was messing around and that he was having some fun driving around like "a big man". unless someone has a gun to your head you don't have to drive fast and furious. this complaint is a complete red herring and he is wasting police time with this nonsense.
