Justin Bieber was busy minding his own business as he left a church service in Beverly Hills a few nights ago. Obviously, the paparazzi were waiting for him as he entered his car. Justin is used to being followed by now but what he's not used to is nearly running over one of the paparazzi and their cameras. The "Sorry" singer got into his truck, started the engine, turned the lights on and started pulling out of the parking space. Why the photogs thought it would be a great idea to get in front of the car as it was about to move is beyond me.
Regardless, he accidentally hit one of them. But, Justin isn't as ill willed as some may think he is. He got out of the car when he realized what had just gone down and stayed with the paparazzo until the paramedics arrived. So freaking sweet, Biebs! Now, the man who was hit, Maurice Lamont, is speaking out about the whole ordeal from his hospital bed.
He posted a video to his Instagram account with the caption, "WOW WHAT A WAY TO BRING IN MY BIRTHDAY! SHOTGETTER POWER! I WISH BIEBER WAS STILL ON TOUR!!"
In the video, Maurice said, "Hour before my birthday hits, I get ran over by Justin Bieber. Isn’t that something? He’s a good kid, though. I think the truck was a little bit too big for him, though, because there’s no way he could see over the front — it was the slope it was on. But like I said, he got out, he was compassionate, he’s a good kid, accidents happen. Hopefully, everything works out here. Getting ready to go into the X-rays right now.
Okay, Maurice, if you ask us, that's a pretty damn good birthday. Maybe some bones were broken but getting consolation from the Biebs is our wish come true. All jokes aside, we're glad Maurice is hanging in there.
