Justin Bieber Camp's SUV Responsible For Paparazzo Death? Photog's Mother Thinks So!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadJustin Bieber

justin bieber paparazzi photographer death suv mother

Justin Bieber has been embroiled in the case of photographer Chris Guerra's death from the beginning.

But could someone from the Biebs' camp actually have driven the car that struck him?

As we previously reported, Chris was following the Biebs' Ferrari when it was pulled over by the CHP. The paparazzo immediately began snapping photos but was told to leave by the police.

While crossing the busy freeway on foot, the paparazzo was killed when he was struck by a black SUV, either a Range Rover or a Hummer, then run over by another car.

Now Chris' mother - who is already suing the Highway Patrol - believes the first vehicle to hit her son may have belonged to Justin's entourage!

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

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadJustin BieberSafety

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.

Justin Bieber Paparazzo Death Caused By A Hit & Run?! New Deets Revealed!

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadJustin Bieber

justin bieber paparazzi death hit and run

Ugh, this sounds awful!

Earlier this year, a freelance photog named Chris Guerra was killed while crossing Sepulveda Blvd in LA in an attempt to capture a picture of what he believed was Justin Bieber sitting in a car.

The driver of the 2007 Toyota Highlander that struck Chris came forward, fully cooperated with the cops, and did NOT face charges…

But it seems there was a SECOND vehicle involved that came in contact with Guerra that did NOT stop, and Chris' family are asking for any and all information about the mystery car and driver!

One of Chris' cousins revealed:

Charlie Sheen Donates $12,000 To Cover Paparazzo's Funeral Costs! Will Justin Bieber Cough Up Cash?

Can we just say how IMPRESSED we are with Charlie Sheen?

We had previously written Charlie off as a crazed tiger blood-drinking eccentric — which he totally might be — but it seems he's a crazed tiger-blood drinking eccentric with a heart of (tarnished) gold!

Not only has Charlie helped Lindsay Lohan with her hefty tax bill AND given money to help cover the excessive medical costs of a 10 year-old Cancer patient…

Mr. Sheen recently cut a check for $12,000 for the family of deceased paparazzo Chris Guerra to help cover funeral costs!

Guerra, who was killed while crossing Sepulveda Blvd in LA when he was attempting to take photographs of Justin Bieber's parked Porsche, is apparently a friend of a friend of Charlie, and in a statement, the Scary Movie 5 star expressed:

Just Too Excited For Justin Bieber's Photo; Fallen Paparazzo Was A 'Sweet Guy'

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadJustin Bieber

justin bieber concert paparazzo death chris guerra memory

Tuesday's incident was a prime example of the less-than-stellar safety practices of the paparazzi, but Chris Guerra was a human and a loved one before anything else.

And even though he shouldn't have been putting himself — or others for that matter — in danger, his memory shouldn't be heavily tarnished with the collective opinion of the general paparazzi.

Before being struck by another car in pursuit of the perfect Justin Bieber photo, Chris was a "sweet, cool guy" according to one of his fellow shutterbugs. The 29-year-old was always nice to the celebrities, he says, continuing with:
