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.

Beibers manager was looking at the poll on TMZ and saw how justin is now pulling away from the speeding to be both the Papp fault and beiber and beiber is now catching up fast to both fault and the management thought we need a story we are going to file a complaint Keep voting Justin make him #1 on one poll.

So you put hundreds of people's lives in danger - you got a flashy car to stand out and then cry when the paps find you - sorry not justifiable - take his license away!

Any record of a 911 call when he was being chased - hmm, not - poor excuse for wreckless behavior.

Funny thing, a chase can't start until someone starts running, otherwise they just go past you or no one moves.

Give me a break. That's a 100% a publicist explanation. Hey Beaver, the photogs can't really "shoot" you. Next time you're speeding for your life go to the "Sixteenth Chapel" and hide. Idiot.

HA! Really? This is just his way of trying to get off the hook for the 10 911 calls made about his driving. Bieber is such a lil b*tch.
