Blunt's Lawyer

Blunts Criminal Charges

4/12/2007 2:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Singer James Blunt won't be charged in an alleged hit-and-run incident back in February, TMZ has learned.
James Blunt
Blunt's attorney, Steven M. Cron, tells us, "Allegations that a member of the paparazzi was the victim of a hit-and-run by James Blunt have been investigated by the LAPD... and the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office has rejected the filing of any charges against Mr. Blunt."

At the time of the incident, several witnesses said that Blunt, who was with model/ex-girlfriend Petra Nemcova, drove an SUV over a man's leg while pulling away from a Hollywood party. The alleged victim was thought to be an autograph seeker, but is actually a member of the paparazzi.

Blunt, who is currently in Los Angeles recording the follow up to his chart-topping debut, Back to Bedlam, has since swapped his SUV for a sweet Hybrid Technologies electric Mini Cooper.

GOOD It's too bad he didn't kill him. He would have deserved it! At the very least crippled for life.

I'm glad he is not in trouble.

I do think it's funny that he is in one of those tiny cars. He, himself, is very tiny.

That's a load of BS. The man whose foot was run over was an autograph seeker from Seattle. You can ask anybody who was there.

The "autograph seekers" are looking to sell them on Ebay. They're just as sleezy as the paparazzi. Run 'em all down.

What's wrong with her face in this picture?    

Perhaps this will teach these STUPID photographers to get out of people's way/space, etc. Don't they have things called "zoom lenses"?
