Cops Say Shia "Not At Fault" for Crash

7/29/2008 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just like that, Shia LaBeouf could be off the hook, at least as far as the accident part of his Sunday morning crash is concerned.

Detectives have determined that the other driver in Shia's bust-up Sunday morning ran a red light, and that person is responsible for the crash, not LaBeouf. "He was not at fault," says L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

Shia was arrested on misdemeanor DUI charges; his hand -- and his truck -- were badly busted in the crash.

STUPID........He was under the influence of alcohol. Dont assume everyone will stop. His judgement could have played a role.

He was still intoxicated. That factor shouldn't go away just because the other person was at fault. Celebrity justice at its best.

guess who    



Uh, guess what!

Driving under the influence is illegal whether your driving is impaired or not.

So, I can't see a dismissal in this matter (unless he blew below .08)

So just because the other dude ran on red light, they're gonna ignore the DUI on Shia? I'm telling you, dui is nothing now. That's why they do it.

This is not the law. The law is that if you are driving under the influence, no matter who did what wrong, you are at fault for the accident. Because if you were not intoxicated, you would've been able to potentially avoid the accident. There is NO WAY he should be off the hook. I like Shia but I really think that young hollywood needs to pay for their crimes the way us regular people have to. A close friend was driving while intoxicated and hit a woman who not only ran a red light, but also was speeding and he has been sent to jail for 6 years while she got off. How can Shia get off?!

in new york , if you are drunk, you are at fault. In this case, both would get 50/50 fault. never assume that someone is going to stop at a red light or stop sign.

What if Shia blew a .08?
What if he had been drinking earlier, spent an hour or two sobering up so he could drive, then headed out? He carefully drives home and some idiot runs a red light and broadsides him on the passenger side, thankfully his passenger avoids serious injury (huge testimonial for Ford trucks here).
Too many questions still unanswered.
Shia is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
I thank God that other driver didn't kill Shia....he has so much potential and I'd hate to see him snuffed out like Heath.

the first time offense is
considered a misdemeanor;

UNLESS someone got hurt from
the actions CAUSED by the intoxicated.

herein, this TRANSPORTER was found
NOT to be a fault during this incident.

therefore, the reduced, first time
offense of a misdemeanor applies.

any additional offenses will indeed
be deemed felonious by the courts.

this give law enforcement the PRIVILEGE to
pull over a vehicle for suspicion at ALL times.

it basically INVITES the law into your vehicle
ANY time the driver is behind the wheel.

rest assured, that this will be just the start of MANY
brushes with the law for this over-grown mistake........

Nick is an idiot, not because he ruined someone's life and thinks he's the innocent, but because his real ality is Nick. I really hope he's having fun in big boy jail. Happy Birthday Nick!!!!!! I'm sure Bubba has a present for him.
