For a brief moment last night, Justin Bieber was a wanted man.
Well, sort of. According to TMZ, the Biebz was leaving the Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard last night in his white hot Ferrari, when he decided the paparazzi was in his way.
Waving for the photographers to get away from his car, where pal Lil Twist was also sitting, Bieber started the engine and started to drive. Unfortunately, he appeared to be crushing a photographer onto a parked car as he did so. What’s more, he didn’t stop.
And that’s how our favorite Canadian sensation was suspected of a hit-and-run late Monday night.
TMZ reported that the Los Angeles Police Department spoke with Bieber and determined that he was innocent. Bieber reportedly told them he had no idea he had hit a photographer.
