Oh Noes! It was The Biebs Who Hit Another Car With His Ferrari!

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

16-year-olds are notorious for being lousy drivers, and even though his wealth may have afforded him a Ferrari, it could not help pop star Justin Bieber when he backed into a Honda Civic yesterday in Studio City. While we thought the Biebs was the one being rear-ended (and you so thoughtfully provided the one liners we'd been hoping for, thanks!), it turns out he was the one doing the fender bending (no euphemism intended).

Fortunately, L.A. Now got the specifics from the Los Angeles Police Department, whose skimpy alert left a lot to be desired:

The crash occurred in the 10900 block of Bluffside Drive in Studio City at an underground parking lot around noon, LAPD officials said. It happened as he was pulling his black Ferrari out of a parking space and bumped a Honda Civic.

Apparently there was so little damage (to the cars, since obvs our hearts were temporarily scarred when the Nixle alert about Bieber's accident came through via text message) that a police report wasn't even filed. Thankfully, Bieber is stalked by the paparazzi, who were there to see the whole thing. Even more thankfully, no one was hurt.

Oh's okay, "Baby," these little scrapes happen to all of us "One Time" or another... (We had to look up his Wiki to make that joke, btw. Swears.)
