Tyrese Cited For Mysterious Felony in Car Crash

1/29/2010 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Tyrese Gibson has been cited for leaving the scene of an accident -- a felony ... but he has a pretty good defense.

Tyrese Gibson car crash

Rewind to January 4 in Miami. Tyrese was involved in a car crash with Sheena McCleary. The cops came and took info from both drivers. Both Tyrese and Sheena were cited for the accident. Sheena -- who claims she was injured -- drove away in a cab with Tyrese.

Now fast forward to January 25. For some reason, Miami police issued traffic citations to both Tyrese and Sheena for "Leaving the scene on public or private property - injury" - a felony.

So how could Tyrese have committed such a felony when there are photos of him talking to cops at the accident scene? That's what his lawyers, Jayne Weintraub and Jon Sale, want to know. They filed papers Thursday with court clerks and entered a not guilty plea on Tyrese's behalf.

Miami prosecutors must now decide whether to pursue the case against Tyrese and Sheena. Weintraub and Sale think it must just be a clerical snafu.

Ironically, paparazzi handiwork may be Tyrese's smoking gun.

Sheena's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ he doesn't believe there's probable cause to go forward with the case.

Jaynie Weintraub is a dynamite defense attorney, he'll get off without a problem. Charges sound bogus anyways.

yet again, the police trying to commit an injustice and ruin a celeb on some RAILROAD LIES to make points..

whomever stated that Tyrese left the scene..the COP who said it should be FIRED..

..see this is why I take my cell=phone camera everywhere..especially when authorities are involved.. people if you are in any situation..use your cell phone camera..becuz if someone had not taken the picture of Tyrese speaking with the officers.. the charge of felony would stick..becuz the men in BLUE will lie and stick together no matter what tp protecdt their own.. their is COP car on the other side of the car tyrese was in wrecked..so I'm certain tyrese spoke to a cop..

YOU STATED:

Tyrese is a closeted homophobic homo. He is married just to show he is straight for crying out loud.

I am not surprised this guy flee the scene he is such a queen.

He sucks. Literally if you know what I mean.

It's time for him to do Jail time, I am sure he'll love it there. I am sure the paparazzi image is as authentic as John F Kennedy's playboy image.

Nice try talentless sucky black-Azz. rats are always rats.

Interesting, now we have a confirmed racist chastising others for being alleged homophobes.

What is this world coming to?

P.S. To the unfortunate thing above.

Tyrese can get more penis or vagina, or a combination of both in one hour of his life, than you can get in your pathetic, useless, unnecessary life.

Now do the world the only great deed you will ever be able to do it, and go kill yourself for the benefit of mankind.

I do not think that is a cop at the scene. I think it is a security guard.

Just because you are accused of a wrongdoing does not necessarily mean that you are responsible or at fault. You need evidence and lucky for Tyrese, he had proof that he had not left the scene. Make sure that when you get in an accident, you always have proof to back you up. —Michael Pines, San Diego Accident Attorney
