Justin Bieber

Rogue Paparazzo

Nearly KILLED Me

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

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.

What he's pulling a Lindsay's the paps fault they made me do it. He's been caught before speeding like a maniac and paps were no where in site. He needs to grow up before he kills someone. No talent and too much money.

Dear Justin, your right to speed ends where everybody else has the right to live. So the papp was chasing you. Slow down and he can tailgate you, then when he rearends you, you can sue. The cops need to take Bieber's license away as he's irresponsible. His insurance company should triple his rates.

The Biebs is another one of those celebrities that thinks nothing is ever his fault. Time for these celebrities to lose their "privileged" attitudes, as well as for the authorities to stop playing into their games. NEWSFLASH: BIEBS FORCED BY PAPARAZZI TO DRIVE RECKLESSLY AT OVER 100 MPH THROUGH TRAFFIC !!! Grow up baby boy... trust me... your time is a-comin' for a serious, if not fatal, accident. Speed on, hell ain't half full...

So it is better to endanger the lives of many people than to simply let them take your picture. MY GOD Hollywood has the most F'd views I have ever heard of.

I believe someone has to run in order to be chased. SO if JB had NOT been speeding, the paps would not have been speeding. He can't outrun them, so what's the point in escalating it to those speeds if not just for the thrill of it? The kid is 18 and he LOVES the attention. Everyone involved should be put in jail just like any other jerk that's been involved in high speed freeway chases. And I agree - it's HOT in LA - take off that silly knit hat.

He's nothing more than a snot nosed little girl. It's never going to be HIS fault. Spoiled rotten little punk.

You can't have any personal dignity to be a pap - fortunately -

Most of these dudes don't.
