D.A. Will Not Charge

Orlando Bloom

10/26/2007 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that the L.A. County District Attorney will not file charges against actor Orlando Bloom over the accident he was involved in on October 12 that injured his two passengers.


In the D.A.'s Charge Evaluation Worksheet, the D.A. states that they are declining to prosecute the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star because of "insufficient evidence."

According to the document, Bloom "was being pursued by 4 vehicles containing paparazzi and one vehicle containing fans." Bloom "took evasive action resulting in a collision."

As for walking away, they say he "walked approximately 60 feet from the scene in an apparent attempt to avoid paparazzi's continued pursuit." They say "[Bloom] was not D.U.I. but was dazed."

This girly wussy wimp got lucky because he's famous. Even if there are photogs bothering you, you don't walk away from bleeding passengers.

Any WHY exactly was he not given a sobriety test?

But of course! He's a celebrity. He's automatically innocent.

The California justice system is a joke and an embarrassment to the fellow Californians. It that would you or I, in his position (with evidence to show, being filmed walking away and coaxed back to the scene) we would NEVER have gotten away with it! We'd be sitting in a jail cell!

Puh-lease    

I told you so. There just wasn't evidence to support a hit and run charge, no matter how much TMZ wanted a big story.

This case is a very public disgrace...    

Hmm....Blooms car accident happens on a public street, he leaves a helpless injured bleeding victim, after drinking in a club, and isn't charged with any crime? Britney Spears bumps a parked car in a parking lot and IS charged with hit and run................some justice system we have.

I didn't think they would press charges and they should not have in this case.
Maybe he should choose less media frenzy places to hang in the future though.
His get away driving skills suck. Move over lady let me drive! Crash!

Idiots! No. 6 Sorry after the OJ deal, you never get to say "cuz he's white" in LA again. You rock No. 11 guess no one has ever heard of probable cause. The cops, if they were even called to the scene can not give just anyone a sobriety test. There has to be SOME evidence that they have been drinking. Walking 60 feet away isn't leaving the scene and isn't it amazing that the paparazzi are still pursuing him instead of paying any attention to some one in the car with a broken neck, talk about no respect

Im just sayin    

#20 chris -

I will take that bet and be $1000 richer. Remember Brandy? She is black and here is her accident stats:
*******************************************************************************
Brandy's Range Rover rear-ended a car, triggering a multi-car accident, which resulted in the death of a 38-year-old woman. One source says there was a "conflict" in the City Attorney's office over whether Brandy should be prosecuted at all. The charge on the table, we're told, is misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.

******************************************************************************

oh, and by the way.... you cant be more than 100% of anything and unless you are in the 7th grade, 1,000,000% makes you sound like a moron.

I'm glad he got off. If he did wrong he would have been punished for it. Seems like a lot of jealous people out there with these comments.

This concave chested 80 pound mockery of a man walkede away from bleeding and injured passengers, didn't have to take a breathalyzer, and walks away like he did nothing wrong?

Between all of the celebrity "justice" going on and the way we turn a blind eye to how the illega Mexicans are ruining our state, California is becoming the Britney Spears of states....a wicked mess in denial of how bad things are, that is going to crash and burn.
