Justin Bieber Cleared in Possible Hit-and-Run
(LOS ANGELES) -- Justin Bieber has been cleared in a possible hit-and-run accident involving a paparazzo Monday night.
Bieber is no longer under investigation for the late-night possible hit-and-run in Hollywood, ABC News Los Angeles affiliate KABC-TV confirmed with the Los Angeles Police Department.
The incident happened near the Laugh Factory around 11:45 p.m. Monday, police told KABC.
One person was transported from that location to a local hospital, the Los Angeles City Fire Department told KABC. The person’s condition and injuries were unknown.
Bieber, 19, was leaving the Laugh Factory with his friend Lil Twist while several paparazzi photographed the pair, according to TMZ.
As Bieber drove off, one of the photographers was pinned between his Ferrari and a parked car, the website said.
This latest incident comes as Bieber is under fire for speeding through his gated California neighborhood. NFL star Keyshawn Johnson confronted him about that incident, but the Canadian singer has maintained that he was not behind the wheel.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department has referred the case to the district attorney’s office and Bieber faces possible misdemeanor reckless driving charges.
