Is Justin Bieber in the clear after accidentally hitting a photographer with his pickup truck? A new report reveals whether or not he’ll be charged for the accident that left the photographer in the hospital.
It’s okay, Beliebers — Justin Bieber, 23, is not going to be charged for his accident on July 26. Although he was driving the pickup truck when it accidentally swiped a photographer, TMZ is reporting that their law enforcement sources have revealed they aren’t looking to formally charge Justin. According to the report, police don’t believe that Justin had any intent to actually hit the photographer. This is great news for Justin, and we’re sure he’s breathing a sigh of relief knowing that he’s totally in the clear.
As for the photographer? Police sources are claiming that he was actually in the wrong for standing in the street, but that it’s such a minor offense they won’t be charging him, either. This doesn’t mean that the photographer won’t be filing a civil suit against Justin over the accident, but that remains unconfirmed. However, TMZ pointed out that since Justin had the right away, was blinded by the photographer flashes, and the photographer was breaking the law by standing in the street, that there might not be a case for a lawsuit. No matter what happens, we just hope that Justin and the photographer can settle this like adults. So far they have, so lets keep it that way, gentlemen!
