Justin Bieber got himself into a complicated situation on Wednesday evening after he accidentally hit a paparazzo with his truck. Yikes!
It’s said the pop star struck the trigger happy photographer while he was trying to leave a City Church event at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills. Apparently, the hitmaker handled the entire situation like a mature adult as, once he realized what happened, he parked his truck and got out to help the paparazzo. We’re guessing the Biebs whispered Sorry a few times too!
The 23-year-old clearly didn’t hit the photographer on purpose as it’s believed that the Canadian-born artist was being blinded by camera flashes at the time of the incident. One onlooker told E! News:
“Justin slid into his truck in the alley. He got in the driver’s seat and saw all the photographers flashing. He drove out slowly, and there was a group of photographers on the driver’s side and a group on the passenger’s side. Once he drove out, the driver’s side paparazzo started walking around the front of the car. It was like a mob scene, flashing at him.
The group on the right passenger side got pinned against Kourtney Kardashian‘s car, parked on the sidewalk. The guy fell down in the mob├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥kind of under the front of the car├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥and the wheel ran over his leg when Justin accelerated. When the photographers stopped flashing and knelt down to help their friend, that’s when Justin realized he hit someone and got out of the car to help.”
Bieber went on to stay with the injured cameraman for 10 minutes until the paramedics arrived. How responsible of him!

The A-lister even shut down some of the hysteria surrounding the situation as he supposedly yelled at one young girl for causing a scene. After a fan shouted something about “praying” for the photographer, Justin hit back with:
“We don’t need more people yelling here, OK? That’s nice of you, but we don’t need anybody else yelling, please.”
We see you, EMT Bieber! Once the cops arrived, the Despacito singer was “totally cooperative” and gave his statement about what exactly happened. Unsurprisingly, the police decided not to arrest the superstar.
Per the police, Justin’s victim is a 57-year-old man who suffered non-life-threatening injuries to one of his lower extremities. The photographer is being treated at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in El Lay.
At the end of the day, we’re just glad to hear that no one was badly injured!!
