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.

I hate Beiber myself, but paparazzi cameras are allowed too much "freedom" and should be restricted as to how much they can get away with. Bottom feeding off of any BS story as usual...

He should be glad that someone is even interested in him.....not to mention even wanting a picture of him.

I just don't understand why there isn't a law enacted that prohibits Paps from being with 100 feet (or some other amount). Paps are ridiculous how they surround a car taking pictures and blinding the driver.

As much as I do not like the way the Biebs behaves, I have no sympathy for the paparazzo because I'm sure they were hanging over the Biebs car as they always do blocking his way!
