Justin Bieber

Cleared

in Alleged Hit and Run

Justin Bieber was under investigation for a possible hit and run accident involving a paparazzo overnight -- but police have now cleared him of any wrongdoing ... TMZ has learned.

Justin was leaving the Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard around 11:45 PM in his infamous white Ferrari. His pal Lil Twist was there as a passenger, and several paps were on scene shooting the duo.

Once Justin got behind the wheel he motioned for some of the photogs to clear out of the way -- but when he drove off he appeared to pin one of them between the Ferrari and a parked car.

Justin did not stop.



LAPD launched an investigation and interviewed Justin a few hours after the incident ... and he told cops he didn't know he hit the photographer (not a TMZ employee).

Police say the photog was not seriously hurt, but was at fault because he was a pedestrian in the roadway.

So, Justin's in the clear ... this time.

Bone heads run around following people, get asked to move, wont move...gets hit...then blames the world..... the real problem is the star gazers....can't they get a real job in life instead of stalking people?

“For the safety of all involved, motor vehicle operators should yield to pedestrians in the roadway" OR ELSE BEIBER WILL MOW DOWN PAPS

So glad the cops were smart enough this time to know it wasn't Justin's fault. I don't care if it's the president you shouldn't be in his way if he's trying to leave.

Last I heard, you can't hit someone even if you "have the right of way"


Looks like the real reason for blaming the pedestrian was not being a super-rich dbag with publicity deals.

Play in the street and get your ass ranover. As much as Beiber is a punk the "photographers" were being *******s. If I were the man trying to keep them back they'd gotten their teeth beat out with a camera. It's bull****! Of course it may be some kind of fantasy land California ****. Who the **** let's people loiter outside their establishment like that and why the **** would a celeb tolerate or allow people coming at them? I wonder if they pretend they're a Beetle? **** I would. lol

He seems to be such a punk. I cannot see what anyone would see in him. I guess he is trying to prove how tough he is. "Small man syndrome".
