Justin Bieber Paparazzi Foil Charged in Highway Chase

by at . Comments

The moron who chased Justin Bieber around a Los Angeles freeway earlier this month might soon pay for his actions in court.

As previously reported, the artist was pulled over on July 6 for driving around 80 miles per hour, but witnesses confirmed he was doing his best to speed away from multiple members of the paparazzi who were after him for photographs.

According to the City Attorney, a freelance "journalist" named Paul Raef was at the head of that pack and he's been charged with:

  • Two counts of following another vehicle too closely and reckless driving, with the intent to capture pictures for commercial gain.
  • One count of reckless driving.
  • One count of failing to obey the lawful order of a peace officer.

If convicted on all charges, Raef could face up to one year in jail and fines of $3,500.
