Justin Bieber

Rogue Paparazzo

Nearly KILLED Me

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.

Still doesn't excuse Beibers reckless driving. Go the damn speed limit and call the cops yourself. Don't frickin instigate a high speed chase with a pap that's obviously trying to get you to do something stupid.. aka drive like a moron.

This f-ing butt wipe never takes responsibility for his actions. This was his fault. He was in front. He was the leader. He set everything in motion. He was driving erratically first. The other drivers on the road should sue JB for putting their lives in danger. Every single day this guy proves what a dirt bag he is. He also has horrible parents. If that were my kid, I don't care how old he was I would rip him a new one and insist he take responsibility. But I guess irresponsibility runs in the family, look at his loser parents. SG is also proving what a creepy person she is by continuing to be with him. You are who you hang out with and JB is the biggest thug I've seen in a long time, so she must be into the same crap he is. No longer respect her. With the way he behaves, I'm beginning to believe that kid is his. He is someone a parent would call a bad influence.

I just don't understand why all of the sudden he's running from the paps. The car along screams LOOK AT ME!!! LOOK AT ME!!! If he doesn't want paps tailing him maybe he should consider owning a five year old minivan, a dark wig and a cheap baseball cap.

My favorite line comes from every Pap Brothel operating out there: "He wasn't one of ours."
Yeah...right.

So not only did he risk people's lives by his actions, but now he is not taking any accountability at all. Hmmm...let's weigh it out...picture taken or crash into inoocent people on the freeway. His choice and lack of responsibility proves he needs his license taken away.

Good riddance!    

But then you compounded it and risked other people's lives in return. Arrest everyone involved!

People should call the CHP and tell them they want JB held accountable for his actions. You can bet JB's fans are doing this already, but asking that the paps be cited and JB be let off the hook. The CHP work on our dime, (not some teenager who doesn't pay taxes), we need to let them know we will not tolerate this kind of reckless driving from little thugs like JB and he should be responsible just like any other would be.

Sorry, but being harrassed by a pap is NO excuse for putting other motorists at risk by swerving in and out of crowded traffic lanes at speeds up to 100mph. Little Biebs needs to be thrown in the hoosegow -- and shown some good lovin' by his fellow inmages...

Says that CHP visited the set of his latest music video to get his statement Perhaps the reason for his style of dress is wardrobe for the music video that he is making.
