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.

Well they were in his way and he sat there waiting for them to move, he signaled for them to move, and he probably didnt even hit him cause he stood up then fell down when cameras were surronding him and then he got help uo and realized he could possibly sue him and started holding his knee. I find this fake, but thats my opiinion.

The photographer got what he deserved. You see a car coming and you don't move. Idiot. After the one photographer was killed you would think these photographers would learn. When you have flashes in your eyes while trying to drive, accidents are going to happen. I think the police need to start charging these photographers for all celebrities.

The laws must be very different in the Bieberverse, because in THIS Universe, you can't hit a pedestrian REGARDLESS of the cir***stances.

Rather enlightening that his fans all support any violence and harm toward others. I do not support papz being reckless at all, but it was clear to me that he deliberately pulled out in a way to make them scatter. He almost hit (if in fact he didn't) the back of the car parked in front of him, knowing that people were standing to the outside of it. Why pull out that shallow unless your trying to make a point and be an ass? If that car was legally parked, somebody ought to check it for damage. He'll keep playing russian roulette until it bites him in the ass. I only hope that it's only his ass that winds up in a sling. Unfortunately, it's usually the innocent victim that pays the price.

Of course he got away with it, and when he kills someone he will get away with that too..

But Skyke..19 year old kid..he has to be one or the other.19 or a kid. And since they gave him a permit to aim at people, the law doesn't consider him a kid

I wish someone would follow that douchebag pap around the corner where he began walking normally the moment no one was watching. Should be a prison sentence of 1 year immidiately for anyone faking injury.
On the other hand, FFS, Justin is worse than any woman. Takes him forever. You sit and drive away. Is he mentally retarded slightly or has a compulsion and needs to press the brake 100 times or something before driving off? jrkoff

Driving around a high performance car at night in a congested area wearing sunglasses.....What could possibly go wrong? Remember Leif Garret? NO? That's what people will be saying in 25 years about Beiber.
