The video shows Justin pull out of his parking space and the photographer going in front of the moving vehicle. TMZ got the entire scene from the photographer’s point of view. You can hear in both POVs that Justin Bieber is concerned for the status of the photographer, asking “Is there anything we can do to help?” and kneeling down alongside the injured man.
The last thing that the pop star wants right now is a liable charge for hitting a pedestrian. Bieber recently canceled his Purpose World Tour to enjoy his hiatus and normality, leaving off the remainder of 15 tour dates in North America and Asia due to “unforeseen circumstances,” according to CNN. Despite this faux pas, the photographer has not pressed charges and Justin Bieber can continue his dearly needed break from the chaos that comes with tour life.
