The gossip website says that Bieber was leaving the Laugh Factory around 11:45 a.m. with buddy Lil Twist when a group of paparazzi descended on the two. The pop star tried driving off with his friend in the passenger seat, but the photographers got in his way. Bieber allegedly even motioned for them to get out of the way, but it appeared that one of the photographers got pinned between the 19-year-old’s car and a parked car. Bieber did not stop and it is unclear whether or not he even knew what was happening.

The paparazzo was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and is said to have suffered from a leg injury. Police were at the scene, but it is unknown whether any legal action will be taken against Bieber.
This comes at a time when Justin Bieber is currently facing a number of problems, including an incident last week where a Miami photographer accused the star’s bodyguard of threatening him with a gun while trying to take snap a photo.
