Newly pious popstar Justin Bieber accidentally ran over a photographer last night as he left the Saban Theater in Los Angeles, where he’d been worshipping at a City Church event. He got in his mega-monster truck, put the pedal to the metal, and – before you could say “Jesus take the wheel” – promptly ran over a paparazzo.
Rather than flee the scene of the crime (as he might have in his wilder days), Justin stayed by the man’s side for a decent 8 to 10 minutes until paramedics and police arrived.
Justin spoke to police before he was allowed to leave the scene — police tell TMZ he was not cited — getting a ride from one friend, while another drove his truck.
Police say the photog suffered non-life threatening injuries to his lower body.
A few hours after he was taken to the hospital … he posted a video describing the accident, and thanking Justin for being “compassionate.”
A compassionate Bieber. To think I have lived to see such a thing.
