Photog's Last Call

He Absolutely Believed

Justin Was Smoking [AUDIO]

1/2/2013 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The last person to speak with the photog who was killed Tuesday following Justin Bieber's car tells TMZ ... Chris Guerra was quite sure Justin had been smoking pot while driving earlier in the day.

The person who spoke with Chris at 5:16 PM -- less than an hour before he was killed -- did not want us to use his name.  He's also a photog who took Chris under his wing, and says Chris was one of his closest friends.

He also says he believes Justin is partly to blame for Chris' death because of the singer's reckless driving history and alleged pot smoking which made it a big story to follow.

As for Miley Cyrus' comments, he says, "Good Christians that I know ... don't throw stones at people who get killed."

The guy that said that JB should be partly responsible sounds crazy as hellllllllllll. NO, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS!! Seriously, stalking ppl & getting paid 2 do it is just a hot a** mess! Sad this happened, but don't they tell these photogs that "their" safety should come 1st...Well, I learned as a child, not 2 play in the streets...where moving cars are coming....HELLO

wait wait wait... so because Justin smokes weed he is partly to blame for Chris's death?? Uh.. ok?? Justin wasn't even in the car. I'm no Justin Beiber fan but this is a little too far. Photogs know going in that their job is somewhat dangerous since it involves stalking and chasing people on a regular basis. RIP Chris, but Justin is not to blame for this. He wasn't even in the car. Get real people... accidents happen.

Hey Miley, do you know any other good people that aren't Christians? Did your Mommy and Daddy teach you that the world is made up of more than just Christians? Some people don't throw stones at another's misfortune because they are just good people, plain and simple. And some people are not so nice even though they are Christian and maybe even because of it. Please leave religion OUT of this. Religion is not always the basis for people doing the right or wrong thing. With all the travels you've done around the world at your young age, it would seem you would have a broader perspective of things but your comment makes you seem like an ignorant school girl.

The tiny bit of sympathy I had for this guy just flew out the window. And his friend is a s***bag

Wow ...    

Nice, this guy wants to blame Justin, because he drives recklessly around LA. Maybe, but we only hear about an issue when the paps are chasing him. Unreal. No sympathy whatsoever for them now. None. I understand the anger, but don't blame a kid that wasn't even in the car.

omg who cares if JB was smoking pot what is wrong with you people??? a person was killed over this?? unbelievable, you all need a reality check!

this is the angle you guys are going with? the pap crossed 4 lanes of traffic, which is illegal, to get a picture and he was told to stay away by police.. The pap was clearly in the wrong not to mention Justin wasn't even in the car.. worthless and gross tmz is..

No one should drive under the influence, but really, who cares if Justin Bieber smokes pot?

Just because there is hearsay that Justin Bieber smoked pot doesn't make it news. Frankly, who cares.
