Looks like one pesky paparazzo has been let off the hook… somewhat!
Remember back in July, when Justin Bieber was involved in a cray cray car chase, down the 101 Freeway in El Lay?
Paparazzo Paul Raef was slapped with four charges for his reckless chase of the Biebs, making him the first ever charged under California’s paparazzi law, drafted up in 2010!
Now it seems Cali Superior Court Judge Thomas Rubinson has chosen to dismiss two of those misdemeanors, finding the new law “problematic” and “overly inclusive.”
While Raef walked away without a $3,500 fine and six months in jail, his charges for reckless driving and failing to obey the lawful order of a police officer still stand.
However, these charges would only lock the pap away for up to 90 days and serve him a fine of $1,000!
Hopefully he’s learned his lesson… though, we don’t think Bieby will be too happy to hear the news!
