Justin Bieber may have some new legal troubles on his hands after hitting a paparazzo with his truck while leaving a church.
Just a few days ago, Bieber announced that he has canceled the remainder of his tour to dedicate his life to Christ. On Wednesday night, the Canadian singer attended church service at The City Church and while he was leaving a group of paparazzi bombarded his vehicle and he somehow hit one of them. Video footage from the incident has since gone viral, showing the moment the vehicle hit the man who is seen on the ground in the photo above.
Cops reported that the man who was hit was taken to the hospital for none life-threatening injuries. The police report also stated that the vehicle was moving extremely slow when the incident occurred. Justin Bieber stopped his vehicle and tried to assist the photographer who was on the ground in pain. He stayed until paramedics arrived and later went about his business, but you can almost bet that a lawsuit is on the way.
“I’m okay,” the photographer said in a video statement posted on TMZ. “Hour before my birthday hits, I get run over by Justin Bieber. Isn’t that something? He’s a good kid, though. I think the truck was a little too big for him, though. There’s no way he could see over the front…But like I said, he got out, he was compassionate, he’s a good kid.” Watch the video below.
In the video you can see Justin Bievber scolding the group of paparazzi who kept filming the whole time. “Are you guys worried about me, or this guy, who’s on the ground? What are you guys doing?” he said. “This guy is on the ground and you’re talking to me about stuff. Put your cameras down and start helping.”
