Justin Bieber files harassment complaint against photographer
LOS ANGELES (KFSN) -- Justin Bieber has filed a harassment complaint against one of the paparazzi who chased him down a Los Angeles freeway last week.
The lawsuit claims the photographer was an extremely aggressive driver and put several lives in danger.
Bieber, driving his $100,000-plus chrome-plated Fisker Karma, was pulled over for speeding in Studio City last Friday. L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine called police after spotting Bieber "going close to 100 mph" on the 101 Freeway near Coldwater Canyon around 10:30 a.m.
"It was like a rocket ship coming by, I'm not exaggerating when I say that," said Zine. "When it passed me, it had to be going close to 100 mph. Every time when there was a little space, it would make a lane change, then there were all these cars following."
California Highway Patrol officers pulled Bieber off the freeway at Vineland and cited him for driving over 65 miles per hour.
Officers reportedly showed up at the singer's video shoot to continue their investigation, and found the same photographer accused of chasing Bieber earlier in the day still there... camera in hand. They took statements from both parties.
This isn't the first paparazzi problem for the 18-year-old pop sensation. On May 27, he got into a physical altercation with a photographer at The Commons in Calabasas. L.A. prosecutors told ABC News they are still deciding whether to file charges against Bieber in the May incident.
