Justin cleared of hit and run


Justin Bieber has been cleared of being involved in a hit and run accident in Los Angeles.

The 19-year-old singer was investigated and interviewed for a few hours after a photographer allegedly suffered minor injuries from being pinned against another car by the singer's white Ferrari on Monday night.

A source told gossip website the All Around the World hitmaker was leaving the Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard at approximately 11.45 pm with his best friend, Lil Twist, when the photographer got pinned between his moving Ferrari and a parked car.

The source insisted Justin motioned at the group of photographers snapping pictures to move out of the way after he got behind the wheel of his supercar but when he drove away he appeared to pin one of them between his car and another parked vehicle.

Justin didn’t stop to see whether the photographer was okay but told police he didn’t know he’d hit anyone.

Police have now cleared the Canadian star of any wrongdoing and said the incident was the paparazzo's own fault because he was a pedestrian in the roadway. Law enforcement sources also said the paparazzo wasn’t seriously hurt.

Justin’s had several other incidents in his white Ferrari recently. He had an unexpected visit from police last month at his home in Calabasas, California, after they received a high volume of calls from his neighbours, complaining he was speeding around recklessly in the car.
