Justin Bieber has been cleared of any wrongdoing after Los Angeles police were called to investigate reports the pop superstar accidentally hit a photographer with his car. The Baby hitmaker was leaving the Laugh Factory comedy club on Sunset Boulevard on Monday night (17Jun13) when his Ferrari clipped a paparazzo, allegedly pinning him against another car. The photographer reportedly suffered a minor leg injury and was admitted to hospital for treatment, but the singer and his pal Lil Twist had left the scene by the time cops arrived. Bieber later told officers he had no idea he had run into a snapper, even though video footage of the incident depicts him driving off with the guy's camera equipment on the bonnet of his car, and authorities have since determined that no crime was committed as the photographer was at fault for being a pedestrian in the roadway, reports TMZ.com. The 19 year old took to Twitter.com on Tuesday (18Jun13) to address the incident, writing, "sometimes u (sic) just wanna go to a comedy club and have a laugh. no trouble. just want to laugh." He then posted details about his upcoming tour dates and added, "im (sic) all about the music". Monday's incident was Bieber's latest issue involving the paparazzi - his security team was accused of assaulting photographers on two separate occasions in Miami, Florida earlier this month (Jun13), while a fan filed a complaint with police for misdemeanour battery after his bodyguards reportedly attacked him for trying to snap a picture of the singer in Los Angeles.
