Justin Bieber

Paparazzi CRASH

After Chasing Him

8/31/2012 5:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber was in the middle of a crazy incident Friday afternoon, which ended with 2 paparazzi crashing into each other ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Justin was either a passenger or the driver in his Fisker Karma (it's unclear because we have shots of him in both seats), which was traveling down Ventura Blvd. A CHP officer happened to pass him, and noticed a Nissan driving "aggressively close behind."  

The cop stopped Justin for tinted windows, knowing that the Nissan would probably stop ... which it did.  Turns out ... the Nissan was being driven by someone in Justin's security detail.

As the cop was speaking to Justin, several paparazzi roared up to the scene. Two of them in separate cars apparently lost control, hit each other and went up on the curb.

As far as we know, no one was cited.
