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.

Bieber - you better start growing up real quick. YOU put several lives in danger. Stop passing the buck and accept some responsibility for your actions.

When this kid gets a dose of the real world vs the faux world his people have set up for him, it is going to be a great big ol' wake up call in the form a a huge kick in the butt.

This quack job and the Kardashian clan only have teeny boppers for fans anyway. Real fine example on how to act and then not being held liable for breaking the law!

This is such a bull**** excuse. Dude you've been in the spotlight for almost 2 years now, you should be used to the paparazzi. If not, don't drive a ****ing chrome car, you incessant ****.

Hey you silly closet twit...YOU ARE FAMOUS!!!(unfortunately to us who don't care about you)
There will always be someone wanting your picture. If you had not been doing high speeds they would not have been chasing you. SUCK IT UP TERD KNOCKER...you are just as much to blame.

Those cops are probably getting Justine to autograph their CDs. Celebrity justice hard at work.
