LOS ANGELES (AP) – A Las Vegas man has been charged with crashing into Jennifer Lopez’s Rolls-Royce on the California coast while drunk.
Los Angeles County prosecutors said in a statement Monday that 53-year-old Robert John Reitz was charged with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and driving at nearly twice the legal blood-alcohol limit. He could get six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
The singer-actress’ vehicle was stopped at a traffic light in Malibu when a pickup truck hit it from behind.
Authorities say Lopez owned the Rolls-Royce carrying her and her two children, but her friend, actress Leah Remini, was driving. No one was injured in the September crash.
