Prosecutors Mulling Hit-And-Run Charges Against Paula Abdul

Mar 18th, 2005

'American Idol' star's car involved in December freeway accident.

Simon Cowell's constant ribbing may soon be the least of nontoxic "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul's problems.

According to The Associated Press, Los Angeles prosecutors are contemplating whether to file misdemeanor criminal charges against the singer for her alleged role in an apparent hit-and-run accident last December on a California freeway.

Frank Mateljan, a spokesperson for the city attorney's office, told reporters that a Mercedes-Benz registered to Abdul clipped another car December 20 on the eastbound Hollywood Freeway, which runs through the San Fernando Valley. The person driving the Benz, who has not actually been identified as Abdul, changed lanes without looking, striking the aforementioned vehicle. Mateljan said the luxury German automobile continued to rush on its way, the driver never pulling over to exchange information.

The AP report says the driver and passenger in the vehicle Abdul's car hit used their camera phones to snap a shot of the offending Benz as it sped off. Police then traced the plate back to the singer. According to Mateljan, no one was hurt in the collision, though both Abdul's driving and criminal records may suffer a few bruises.

Any charges against Abdul will be filed before the weekend. The AP tried contacting Abdul for comment, but the diminutive FOX star and former Lakers cheerleader was traveling abroad, according to her publicist Stephanie Sher.
