Justin Bieber was at the Laugh Factory on Sunset Blvd around 11:50pm on Monday night, and when the 19-year-old pop superstar was ready to leave, a member of his entourage took Bieber's white Ferrari around the block and swooped him up. Bieber, who was wearing a pair of sunglasses, crawled in through the passenger seat, and when his bodyguard hopped out, Biebs got in the driver's seat and his pal Lil Twist sat down in the passenger seat.
Several photographers were shooting pictures outside the car, but Bieber didn't give himself enough space when he tried to speed off, and he ended up pinning and crushing one photographer's leg between his Ferrari and a silver Audi that was parked on Sunset. Bieber fled the scene before cops or paramedics arrived.
The Los Angeles Fire Department and the Los Angeles Police department were on the scene within a matter of minutes, and police spoke with the injured photographer and several other eyewitnesses, reviewing photos and video. The injured photographer was put on a stretcher and taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in an ambulance, and police completed the accident report from the hospital.
Bieber is already under investigation for reckless driving near his Calabasas home, and prior to that he was investigated for battery when he got into an altercation with one of his neighbors after speeding around his gated community. It's not clear whether the photographer will press charges or if the LAPD will be investigating Bieber for hit-and-run or reckless driving.
- Bieber was under investigation for hit and run, but police have since cleared him. Bieber claims he didn't wasn't aware of hitting anyone, and authorities determined that the photog was at fault because he was a pedestrian in the roadway.
