A former movie star and current TV star, one married to a former Miss America winner, has been charged with a crime. Police have charged him with fleeing the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor offense, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. The man had been driving along that day like it was any other day. Nice, sunny, pleasant, the kind of day that takes away one’s cares and worries. The kind of day that one would never suspect would lead to an arrest by the police. Then it happened, a sudden, violent, world changing event. The actor rammed his car, likely on accident, into the back of another car, noted a New York Criminal Lawyer. It must be said that it is likely but uncertain because the actor left the scene of the accident before the police could arrive to determine exactly what had happened.
The actor says it was all an innocent misunderstanding, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. He says that he exchanged insurance information with the other driver and had been patiently waiting for several minutes when he felt that the police officers were never going to show up, noted a New York Criminal Lawyer. Feeling that he’d done nothing wrong the man then left and went home. But, because he ran away, because he didn’t wait, because he refused to let the police investigate what happened, everything is now up in the air, reports a New York Criminal Lawyer. No one knows if he had been drinking, if he did this on purpose, or any of the circumstances surrounding the event.
