The Word: Justin Bieber goes free from hit-and-run charges
Finally, some good legal news for Justin Bieber. The Los Angeles D.A.’s office has decided not to file hit-and-run charges against the singer in connection to an alleged run-in with a photographer last month, stating that there is no way to prove Bieber fled the scene intentionally, according to E! News.
“There were over a dozen paparazzi surrounding his car and on the sidewalk, and it was noisy with camera flashes and bright lights surrounding him,” a spokesperson for the department says. “The Ferrari’s engine is loud. The impact was minor and, given the chaotic scene and stress of the situation, it is likely that Bieber did not know he had hit Walter.”
