Justin Bieber was cleared by the LAPD Monday night following an investigation for a possible hit a run accident involving a paparazzo.

Bieber, 19, was reportedly leaving the Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard around 11:45 p.m. in his white Ferrari when paparazzi started shooting pictures of him and his friend Lil Twist getting into the car.

Once inside the car, the "Girlfriend" singer motioned the photographers to move out of the way, but when he started to drive off he allegedly pinned one of them between his Ferrari and a parked car.

A couple of hours after the incident, the 19-year-old singer was interviewed by the LAPD about the incident. Bieber told authorities he didn't know he had hit the paparazzi with his car.

In the end officials cleared the singer claiming the photographer was not really hurt, and that the incident had been his fault because he was a pedestrian in the roadway.
