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.

Maybe these dumb paps should stop standing in front of cars to take pictures, flashing their cameras and blinding the drivers.
Serves the pap right getting hit.

These kids in Hollywood with money have no business driving cars. They just need a driver and a comfortable car to get to the clubs and events they attend. Why should they be driving at all? When they are driving it becomes dangerous for other drivers in the vicinity with photographers preying on them.

He's a douchebag based on what? He hasn't been charged with a crime ( despite Tmz's efforts), he works to support his family, supports various charities, and he's a 19 year old who is learning about life. Will his death satisfy you? We all know Tmz and the gang would be excited as hell due to all of the stories they could generate from it.

It was only a matter o time he hurt someone. He thinks he is above the law. he lost all the morals he was taught and doesn't even help out his grandparents who are broke and working in a factory in their 70;s. JB is a litel creep who is hated world wide. His fans are the dumbest people on the plant. soon he wont have any fans he is getting Old and ugly. The should do a drug test he was proably stoned out of his head. The LAPD has been givng him a free pass but they well turn on him now. even his stupied body gurads wont be able to get out of this. Justin LIES to cops all the time. even if you have a 420 card it is still a DUI to drive high.

I'm sick of TMZ's vendetta on the Bieb. And you jealous, vengeful posters too. Get a life and earn your own stuff instead of bitching about him.

Good that is what their a** get. I have no sympathy for those rude, disgusting Papz, they get in the way of the people's car and put themselves in harms way, if they don't want to get hit they should stop doing it, they block people in and chase people down for pictures, it is just ridiculous, next time one of them is going to get killed if they don't stop it.

The headline for this story should be: "Watch paparazzo intentionally get clipped by Ferrari so he can sue". OK the quote needs tweaking but he looks like he did that on purpose.

Cool, LAPD just confirmed... if you hit a pedestrian on the street a hit and run is okay. GTA ftw.

ALso if you don't know you hit a pedestrian... you should get your drivers license suspended.
