Mother Of Killed Paparazzo In Justin Bieber Incident Suing California Highway Patrol

All so sad…

The mother of a paparazzo that had followed Justin Bieber's Ferrari and been struck and killed by a car in January is alleging that his death was the responsibility of the California Highway Patrol.

Vickie Guerra, mother of the late photographer Chris Guerra, is suing the CHP and the State of California for unspecified damages, claiming that a police officer ordered Chris to unsafely cross a busy street.

As we reported earlier, Chris had been tailing Justin's Ferrari, driven by Lil Twist at the time, when CHP pulled the pair over and wrote Lil Twist a ticket for speeding on the 405.

Then according to Vickie, a CHP officer saw Chris taking some photos and, allegedly using his gun, menacingly signaled the photographer to cross a busy street.

Sadly, Chris then got hit by one car, and run over by a second one.

In addition to this lawsuit, Vickie is also suing the driver that struck Chris.

If what Vickie claims is true, it makes this tragedy even more horrible. No parent should have to bury their child.

    um…I don't think police officers routinely pull out their gun when not being threatened. And, why is it CHPs fault if he didn't know how to cross a street?

    Another example of parents blaming everyone else for their "child's" death. Its not the CHP's fault, obviously he was doing something he wasnt suppose to. Like the person before me said, its not CHP's fault the guy couldnt look both ways before crossing the road..that was something that should of been drilled into everyone's head. Dont blame someone or a group when its the victims fault he died

    How horrible! If this paparazzo was obeying this cop's order then the CHP is at fault. Was this guy standing on a divider or off the road in the ditch before the cop motioned him to cross a busy street? Those are questions people should demand the answers for! IF a cop motions you to cross a busy freeway or street and you get run over and killed is that not that cop's responsibility for putting that person's life in danger at that exact moment?
