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.

The paps can be disgusting vultures, but Bieber is still in the wrong. Normal people pull over and call the police, not weave in and out of traffic going 100 mph. He could have killed someone, what would his excuse have been if he did?

It was not Bieber driving!!! I think it was WALDO!!!!!!Maybe the security guy was assisting him with something or massaging him? The nerve to file a complaint against the PAPS - worst management team ever. THis puke punk is a LOSER and his career is downhill from here. They only thing he's got going for him is all the little girls and littleboys who love him - what a joke. I'm ashamed to say I'M Canadian too!!!!!!!!!

Linnocent Lite - Notice how nothing is ever HIS fault? And he's rivaling her poor driving record, as well. Jerk's got a sense of entitlement on him the size of Canada.

Mr pro Dj    

but maybe bieber shoulda bought a gated estate in a gated community in Bel Air, Holmby Hills, BH for a little more cash instead of way out in calabasas,

then the paps would find someone else to chase down,

Mr pro Dj    

come to think of it, malibu would have been a better move,

last I read, the aggressive paps end up in malibu's finest private jail where they have their own laws, get it ?

Big deal I could call and complain about someone's driving and give the police a plate number but if they didn't see the speeding or reckless driving what can they do about it?, Nothing!
All they are doing is trying to appease this little prick by taking a statement so it doesn't look like they're singling him out.

"Running' from someone who is 'armed' with a camera is no excuse to put so many lives in danger. It's a camera, not an AK47. BOTH of them should be cited.

The pap was chasing him with a camera, right? Not a gun. The danger was his driving so fast. So what if there is another picture of that punk. If he wants to kill himself, no problem, just don't take innocent people with him when he does it.

Waaahhh the guy was trying to take my picture so I endangered everyone else's life by driving like a maniac. Hey moron, next time let the guy snap your picture and be done with it. Celebrities especially recently more and more refuse to take responsibility for their actions. They keep using their fame as a get out of jail care. I'm sick of it.
