Well, one man risked his life to get the picture, and it literally cost him his life.
According to CBS LA ” Highway Patrol officers had pulled over the Ferrari for allegedly speeding”. The paparazzo pulled over on the side of the highway to snap some pictures of Justin Bieber’s Ferrari and the officers asked him several times to return to his vehicle because the area was unsafe.
