Exclusive Details

Justin Bieber accidentally ran over a photographer as he left a church service in Beverly Hills ... and the loud impact was captured on camera.

Justin was leaving the Saban Theater, where he'd been worshipping at a City Church event. He climbed into his monster pickup truck as photogs scrambled around the vehicle, and when he gunned it to pull away ... hit the man. It's pretty clear in the video ... Justin's front right side tire hits, or rolls over, the paparazzo.

Justin did not flee the scene and, in fact, stopped as soon as other photogs pointed out what had happened. Bieber stayed right by the man's side for roughly 8 to 10 minutes until paramedics and police arrived.

Justin spoke to police before he was allowed to leave the scene -- police tell TMZ he was not cited -- getting a ride from one friend, while another drove his truck. 

Police say the photog suffered non life threatening injuries to his lower body.

EXCLUSIVE

Ronnie Magro from 'Jersey Shore' needed stitches to repair his sliced and bloodied hand after a rough night in a Las Vegas club.

TMZ obtained a shot of Ronnie's messed up left mitt -- he walked away from the fight with what looks like 5 lacerations. As we first reported ... Ronnie sustained the injuries early Friday morning in Tao Las Vegas.

Sources connected to Ronnie say he was in VIP when a crowd spilled into the area around him ... and as he tried to shield her, someone threw a bottle or glass which shattered on his hand. A rep for Tao tells a slightly different story -- saying there were no other individuals involved, and Ronnie just accidentally broke a bottle in his hand. 

Either way, Ronnie didn't realize he was cut -- booze numbs, after all -- until his gf pointed out he was bleeding on her. Security at TAO gave him a few bandages and suggested he get stitches.

He initially blew off that advice, but we're told Ronnie gave in Friday afternoon and got stitches.

7/18/2017 7:07 AM PDT

Here's a video of terrifying UFC destroyer Khabib Nurmagomedov punching an average dude in the stomach super freakin' hard ... but don't worry, the guy actually ASKED him to.

Now, why this dude wanted to get popped in the guts by a guy who wrestles bears for fun is beyond us, but it 100% happened when Khabib was messing around with some fans in Tajikistan.

We don't know what Khabib says to the guy before the punch happens, but he seems to be telling him how the shot is going to rearrange his organs before he hits him.

Good news? After he delivers the dragon punch to the dude's stomach the two men hug, which is great, but watching the whole thing made us happy we give hugs to bond on this side of the pond.

9:21 AM -- Ryan just tweeted the injury is the result of a freak accident, NOT an injury he suffered doing a stunt or anywhere near the set of "Shooter."Ryan Phillippe's learning the hard way ... breaking a leg as an actor ain't always a good thing.

The "Shooter" star is laid up in a hospital bed with his right leg bandaged up -- also looks like he has a cast around his ankle. It's unclear what he broke, but based on the hardware fixed on the leg ... we're guessing there was some surgery involved.

No word if it's a work related injury, but Ryan captioned the pic, "I'm going to be ok and I appreciate your concern." A few hours later he changed his tune a bit, tweeting, "this sucks."

More pain meds, please.
