LAPD

Investigating James Blunt's 'Hit & Run'

2/27/2007 4:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that the LAPD has opened an investigation into a late night car accident involving singer James Blunt and supermodel Petra Nemcova, and have officially classified it as a "hit and run."

According to several witnesses, James drove their black SUV over the leg of an autograph seeker as the couple slowly pulled away from a Hollywood party Friday night.

According to police, LAPD has not yet "identified" the driver of the vehicle during the accident (?), however, TMZ ran a photo of Blunt in the driver's seat!

A rep for Blunt tells TMZ that, despite reports to the contrary, the person run over "wasn't a fan" and says, "It was a ton of paparazzi that were all swarming [James'] car as he was driving two MPH trying to navigate his way through them... They were invading his space. He was just trying to quietly leave the party." She adds that James is "looking into the matter and will cooperate."

paparazzi, can't get a real job, so they hound celebs. How did Danny get Methodone in his system? Stern switched his meds. Or put it in the coke he got for Danny.

If I hounded people and got my foot run over, I'd be reasonable and understand that these things happen when you're stupid

I'm sure he had no idea anyone had been injured when he drove off......

Shame on that man for not MOVING out of the way.....I often see the paps swarming around the cars and wonder why stuff like this doesn't happen more often......

They should not be able to throw themselves on the car the way that they do.....

# 1 - drug dealers, black or not, are subject to arrest. Just because more black drug dealers are arrested than white drug dealers doesn't mean it was due to racism from the police -- it's society and societal roles.
#2 - Are you on Anna's methadone? Wtf does any of that have to do with James Blunt running over someone's leg.
#3 - Your name says it all.
#4 - You commented and I wish i could run over your foot right now... is that reasonable?
#5 - Nobody watches prison break. the only breaks you get in prison are your pelvis cracking when bubba comes to see you, his b*tchy poo.
#6 - What do you care? You don't think these celebrities make massive amounts of money and gain popularity BECAUSE of the photogs? They created the tabloid craze, now live with it...or you know... shave your head and attack cars with umbrellas..
#7 - You create many facts to this story. Having been non-present and using only a tabloid site, TMZ.com, as reference.... makes you BRILLIANT. :)
#8 - You are so damn sexy it hurts.
#9 - Sometimes you hear a crunch and you just hope for the best. Sorry, Mr. Squirrel :(
#10 - Grown men don't cry over broken toes. They cry over court cases they preside over as officiates of the law.
# 11 - you will "never give up your fight for racism" yet you will go ahead and call James Blunt a cracker? Not that it really offends white people when you say that, but holy sh*t did you eat a bowl of hypocrite wheaties this morning or are you just that dumb?

Okay, I think I raised enough of a stink :) What? I was bored. :) Bring it.

Why doesn't California make strict and frightful laws protecting working press, camera men, fans and stalkers from getting harmed while harassing others for money?! It's a puzzlement!

It would serve the STALKARAZZI right to get run over, if it was one of them. I certainly hope if it was, that JB doesn't get charged with any wrongdoing.

It wouldn't surprise me if one of the stalkarazzi got in the way on purpose, leeches that they are. There should be some sort of a law regarding such blatant infringement of personal space, like a 20 foot space if they are not invited closer to take pics. There is no need to get closer, since good lenses can provide sharp photos.

Photo taking of celebrities has gotten way out of hand.
