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."

We're supposed to feel sorry for this pap leech? Put all paps out in the middle of the street. Let God sort them out.

Justin Bieber is responsible because of the story paps made up about him to use as an excuse to follow him around? You guys are in the wrong town. You should be in Washington DC with that kind of logic.

Same thing happened to two of my tennis buddies from the Las Vegas area about six or seven years ago. Both now have an abacus type hip replacement and both were pronounced dead after their auto accident. Both men were resurrected by the hospital
surgeon! What a drag. The reviving syrum is known ancient turtle medicine that encourages growth even at the morturary with wilkes-barre syndrome setbacks and a knarly type of walking pattern as if they played soccer for a decade non-stop and an increase in height of three to six inches taller.

As much as it pains me to defend Justin Bieber... how could his reckless driving history have possibly contributed to this man's death when he was neither behind the wheel of a car, nor in the vehicle that ran him over. That makes no sense.

Ruh roh! Justin was smoking weed?!?! Weed is not that big of a deal, alcohol is so much worse. Legalize it! I can just picture it....the biebs (or whatever he is called) smoking a big fat blunt.

This is very sad. I think his friend is a dirtbag for calling and sharing the audio...it's too soon. Accusations regarding fault aside, there is a family grieving right now.

So,it's partly his fault that the paparazzi stalks him looking to cash in on photos that they take of him? It was the victims own damn fault. You would think that he[Justin Beiber] mowed him down,instead of the person that actually hit him.

How in the f*ck can this guy actually blame Beiber when he was not in the car at all? How about blaming the idiot that got himself killed chasing a story instead of working a real job.

This is being blamed on Justin, to expose he smokes weed...So Damn What. Being stupid and disobeying an Officer is the issue. Thinking you can do whatever you want has consequences. Yes the death is tragic, but no one is to blame but the photographer.

Somebody please tell me that the accident record isn't going to be released by L.A.P.D. and they find out the name of the poor driver that hit this man. I can just see you A-holes pulling that. I couldn't imagine having to deal with hitting and killing someone even when it was the Paps fault. That's a very traumatic event to go through. Condolences to the man's family.
