Justin Bieber Hits Photographer with Pickup Truck

Posted July 27, 2017

Justin Bieber hit a press photographer with his truck while trying to leave an event, according to police in Beverly Hills. In it, Bieber is seen starting up his auto and leaving the theater to a slew of paparazzi.

Police are investigating the incident and Bieber remained at the scene as paramedics arrived.

The 57-year-old man - whose identity is not yet known - reportedly told Justin he was "fine" but was later taken to hospital anyway with his non-life threatening injuries.

The incident is understood to have occurred as the pop star was leaving The City Church in Beverly Hills last night (July 26). In its report, KTLA said that Bieber left in a 2017 Aston Martin that's leased to Kourtney Kardashian. The video appears to show Bieber pulling out of his parking spot when he allegedly ran over the foot of a photographer standing nearby. Bieber quickly exited the vehicle and ran to the photographer's side, held his hand and - spoke with him as Biebers' friends also gathered around.

Dowling said Bieber and other A-list celebrities were attending a church service. Footage obtained by TMZ shows Bieber's truck running into the man as the singer slowly pulled away from the church.

In 2012 a paparazzi photographer was accused of chasing Justin Bieber at high speeds in a Los Angeles.

His Purpose world tour included a date at London's Hyde Park and attracted attention when his rather demanding tour rider leaked online.

This accident comes after Justin cancelled the remaining 14 dates of his objective world tour. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
