One famous pop icon has recently had a run-in with the police. Tween and teen sensation Justin Bieber was pulled over on Friday, July 6 for reckless driving. Bieber was stopped by the California Highway Patrol on the 101 Freeway. Officers are investigating whether the singer was being chased by aggressive paparazzi photographers.

Every Hollywood icon faces the dreaded and annoying paparazzi once they have reached the brink of fame. Justin Bieber was reportedly battling the frenzy of the paparazzi as he raced down the 101 in his environmentally friendly Fisker Karma. Other drivers who saw Bieber speeding by called 911 to report the reckless driving but couldn’t quite describe his automobile. Some described it as an “aluminum car”, a “stainless steel Ferrari”, and one even ventured out and called it a “spaceship.” His Fisker is a chrome-colored sports car which explains the confusion about his automobile being an “aluminum car”. Clearly, the pop star’s car drew more attention to itself other than its speed.

Bieber was charged with reckless driving and given a fine. He had been weaving through traffic which caused some travellers to be concerned about his careless driving. The photographers were also driving just as recklessly which may have sparked Bieber to drive a bit more aggressively. Other drivers in the road claimed the teenage boy had been going at around 100 mph but Bieber’s representatives deny this claim saying he rarely went over 80 mph.

Justin Bieber, the 18-year old boy who has women from ages 10 to 80 swooning to his lyrics, is just like all of us regular folks when it comes to the law. Endangering the lives and safety of other individuals out in the road is cause enough for cops to pull a driver over before any personal injury is inflicted. Famous or not, safety is still a number one priority for law enforcers.

Reaching fame through his self-published YouTube videos, Bieber has now become a household name. As one of the richest youngsters in the world, Bieber has a name and face that can be recognized almost anywhere. Also famous is the teenager’s girlfriend: Selena Gomez who is a former Disney star. The couple have had troubling times with the paparazzi and have been bombarded by overwhelming picture takings almost everywhere they go. It is no surprise that Bieber was trying to whizz away from the photographers.

While Justin Bieber was merely trying to run away from one of the side effects of fame, he could have injured a fellow driver and passenger out in the freeway. If you have been a victim to personal injury, consult with a Los Angeles car accident attorney today. There is no excuse for careless driving, hire a lawyer today who will fight on your side.

Road Rage Causes Fight on Side of Freeway, Caught on Video

When we think of road rage, we think of cars cutting off other cars, drivers flipping off other drivers, people honking, cars zigzagging. However, one curious case of two drivers can change that image. On a bright afternoon of Tuesday, June 12, two men were videotaped beating up another driver who had supposedly cut them off. Another motorist had stopped by the Interstate 5 freeway in Los Angeles to video the ordeal on his phone.

Driving in Southern California freeways, road rage abounds. With rush hours, numerous drivers, and packed freeways, it can be a bit hard to escape the day without experiencing a bit of anger towards other drivers. But it is when this aggressive behavior causes personal injury to another individual that action against it must be taken.

The victim, Jerry Patterson, claims he had unintentionally cut off another automobile, sparking the wrath of the men inside the car. After that, things got out of hand. The three other men, two of which have been identified as David Mendez and Edras Ramirez, got into a fist fight with Patterson.

Patterson had got in front of the men’s vehicle and for about five miles was followed by the other three men. They threw objects at his car before stopping in front of him. In the video, the men could be seen having a heated discussion before rolling up their sleeves and throwing punches, clearly letting their road rage show.

While they were fighting, another traveler, Emeal Age, stopped his car and decided to capture the scene on his cellphone. Since then, the video has been uploaded on YouTube and Live Leak, gaining many views.

Thanks to our social media and viewers’ ability to make a video go viral, police officers were able to see the clip and initiate an investigation. Age was able to capture images of the men beating up Patterson as well as the license plate of their Volkswagen Jetta. Because of the video, two of Patterson’s attackers turned themselves in on Wednesday after officials held a news conference concerning the captured clip earlier that morning.

Patterson, a father of three, said he would not have reported anything or stepped up if the two-minute video had not been uploaded on the internet.

Two of the three men from the Volkswagen Jetta appeared to drag down Patterson onto the ground before kicking him. The victim then appeared to be unconscious when the two men repeatedly kicked him on the head. Patterson said he had suffered a concussion. After the men drove away, another traveler appeared by Patterson’s side and called 911 while Age jumped out of his car and checked on Patterson.

This kind of road behavior is ridiculous and unnecessary. There is no need to cause personal injury to another driver because of pride and anger. When out on the roads in Los Angeles, traffic and other drivers are enough to get somebody on edge, but that is not a just reason to purposely cause harm to somebody else. If you have been injured because of somebody else’s negligence, call a Los Angeles personal injury attorney today and file a claim.
