LAPD Investigating Orlando

10/16/2007 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Orlando BloomTMZ has learned the LAPD is investigating the car crash involving Orlando Bloom, and cops are still looking at the possibility that he committed hit and run.

The accident occurred just after 2:00 AM Friday, after Bloom left a Hollywood club. The woman in the back seat, prominent fashion stylist Cher Coulter, suffered a fractured neck in the crash. Minutes after leaving the club, Orlando smashed into a parked Porsche, then began walking away from the scene. X17 has video of paparazzi repeatedly urging Bloom to return, which he finally did.

Ironically, as Coulter left the club, before getting in the car, she said to Orlando, "What, are you gonna leave me on the street." Minutes later, that's exactly what he did -- when he walked away.

Detectives tell us Orlando has been interviewed by cops, and he said an SUV with paparazzi cut him off and caused the crash. The LAPD is investigating that as well.

As to why Bloom was not given a field sobriety test, one detective says that even if an officer saw "minor objective symptoms" of intoxication, it's still a subjective judgment call.

The LAPD tells us the investigation is open and active.

We contacted Bloom's rep -- so far, no word back.

I could have told you he was drunk after I saw the video of him and that guy outside the club right before! It doesn't take a detective to make that call!

Can LA cops be any worse at their jobs??? Bloom was clearly drunk moments before the accident. An' why did any of you paps clue the cops in?? Never heard of "rewind!" Oh, well. Your film was got. Guess that's all that matters.

I laugh at other's misfortunes    

As to why Bloom was not given a field sobriety test, one detective says that celebrities don't have to comply with rules and laws that ordinary citizens do. They're considered special and receive a different kind of justice. Bloom could not be reached for comment as he has checked himself into rehab to avoid jail time. Another celebrity tactic that normal people are not available to.

F that    


What was he trying to hide when he ran away.
he wasn't leaving his friends or trying to save him image-
he was trying to get rid of something.
Anyone-besides a few fan girls who refuse to accept reality-can see
he was up to something.
