Emmylou Harris

Cops Plea In Hit-And-Run

EXCLUSIVE

1107-emmylou-harris-getty
Emmylou Harris has new material for her next hit  ... she just pled no contest in her hit-and-run case.

Harris allegedly hit a car on an LA freeway back in October, 2012 and then sped off.   Her defense -- she didn't realize she had struck another car.  Yeah, it's thin.

Harris just pled no contest to a lesser crime -- failing to provide information to the other driver at the scene of an accident.  She was also ordered to pay $5k to the victim by the end of the week.

The crime is an infraction, so Harris will not even be placed on probation.

Sounds like a good song to us.

I'm reminded of Clarence White, and it's not just because of Emmy's fright wig.

Obviously the "victim" wasn't hurt. Apparently the victim's car wasn't hurt badly, either, or it was taken care of. I know of a case in which a very drunk driver caused a fatality, then fled the accident, running and hitchhiking. She was apprehended 2 miles from the scene, sloppy, staggering, and slurring, and denied involvement. She got one year in County Jail. Spent only the nights there...got to go home daily to run her preschool. Yeah. And she killed someone. Out of her 1-year slap on the wrist, she spent 8 months, nights only, in jail. Out on good behavior. So for cryin' out loud, don't crucify Emmylou. And why pick on her looks? What does that have to do with anything? Is she supposed to botox and fill and sandblast herself to remain and artist? She's a griot! (look it up.) She's brilliant.
