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.

The pap didn't hurt his leg.
Lil Biebs, the irresponsible, hurt the pap's leg.

Let me explain this to all of you celebs... if you don't like the paparazzi that come with the business, get out of the business. It comes with the job.

He was only going about 10 mph. The paparazzi deseved it. What in the hell are the judge in the appeals court doing smoking weed. Put the ant-paparazzi law back on the books.

This is a 19 year old kid, who works to support his family, that is being stalked and put in danger by unethical rabid paps. Not only are they putting him and the public in danger, they are risking their lives fora pic or provoked response. The disregard of everyone else for a pic is dangerous.

I just saw the video. Bieber cleary aimed for the paparazzi, side swiped the Audi and hit the paparazzi. Then committed a hit and run probably because he was under the influence. Oh, snap! Bieber's going to jail for assault with a deadly weapon!

know being a celeb includes paparazzi's but still they should move and not block the road when they're trying to drive.

Dude... From a video I saw.. The pap was leaning on the car before justin even took off. and he wanted to make a scene and cause more trouble for Justin. Why cant ya'll leave him alone? Seriously! Ya'll make him out to be this "Troubled Teen who's fame got to his head and he doesnt know what to do with himself" Like the ****. Hes still young. Every single one of you ppl who reads this, talks about how people acts yada yada, Ya'll have made mistakes too, But I bet you learned from your mistakes, thats what Justin is doing. Hes not a bad guy, At all. He has a huge heart, He does so much for so many people, Maybe if ya'll took the time to see what he actually does to help people, You'd understand, Give him credit. His music has meaning. He gives back to alot of people, All he has to do is walk in a room and everyone's day is made, Or all he has to do is tweet them or retweet them and they are goin insane. He actually makes people happy. so actually get to know the GOOD about the guy before you start bashing on him. He has done nothing wrong but live his dream, and i sure am damn proud of him for that. I respect him on so many levels.
