Less than an hour before his death, the photographer following Justin Beiber’s Ferarri on Jan. 1 made a call claiming Justin was smoking pot while driving.
Photographer Chris Guerra was killed by an on-coming vehicle Jan. 1 while chasing Justin Bieber‘s Ferarri in L.A., and although Justin was not inside the vehicle at the time of the accident, the photographer made a call to his freelance photography agency alleging that he saw Justin smoking pot while driving his car.
A source from the agency told TMZ that Chris called at 5:16 p.m., saying, “Man, you won’t believe my luck. It’s pretty dead in L.A. Everybody thinks Justin and Selena are in Mexico, but they’re not.”
The photographer, whose job was exclusively to follow Justin, told the agency that earlier that day he witnessed the pop star smoking from a pipe while driving the car.
Chris followed the car back to LA’s Four Seasons Hotel, where Justin had been earlier that day, to monitor what he believed would be a major story. After the car pulled out of the Four Seasons about 20 minutes later, the photographer hung up the phone with the agency so he could follow the car.
The source believes Chris was “overzealous” because of the potential story he was about to break.
After the Ferrari was pulled over on the 405 highway, the photographer parked his car and got out to snap some photos. On his way back to his car, the photographer was hit by an oncoming vehicle and was killed.
