Hit and Run Charges Against Pamela Bach -- Dismissed!

9/25/2007 5:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A misdemeanor hit-and-run charge was dismissed today
against David Hasselhoff's ex-wife, actress Pamela Bach.

Bach's attorney, Mark Geragos, said the dismissal stems from a statement made by the car's owner, saying that she did not want to proceed with the case.

Bach had been charged with one count of misdemeanor hit-and-run causing property damage in a Jan. 22 fender-bender in the San Fernando Valley. However, she was finally booked and released by LAPD officers yesterday!

Geragos told City News Service "I think the [other motorist] was paid through insurance." He added that estimates of the damage -- which Geragos described as a "paint transfer" -- ranged from $700 to $1,300.

UPDATE: TMZ spoke exclusively with the victim who says the only payment she has received came in the form of two checks from Geragos's firm which totaled $3,207. The victim also told us, "I'm relieved that this whole ordeal is over, but I'm still waiting for a formal apology." Keep holding your breath.

I bet someone from Bach's camp threatened her. Bach needs to get rehab and stat! Next time it could be a person and not a car.

No. 5, if the victim decides not to testify against the defendant, then the government essentially has no case. They would have a hard time time proving guilt without a witness for the prosecution.

Miss. Bach has been through enough, I am very pleased that this case has been dismissed. Perhaps this will free up resources to go after real criminals. Has she not been through enough, she had the 'hugger' Ms. Opri as her attorney and she was married
to the 'star' and still has to deal with issues concerning her family. Folks she has been through enough.
I wish her well,
