Keanu Reeves is the latest star to have a run-in with pesky paparazzi
As the official police version goes, Keanu Reeves was pulling his 1996 Porsche out of a spot in front of his LA home on March 19 when he "grazed" a photographer. A statement from the Sheriff's Department said "the man fell to the ground" and was taken to hospital. Keanu was unhurt and uncharged. But in the unofficial version - from a photo agency - the Matrix star accelerated and hit the snapper, who flew across the bonnet. Bailed out by a neighbour, Keanu "showed no remorse," said a witness, and left the crying, injured man on the ground "like a piece of meat."
Whatever the truth, the incident was similar to the accident singer James Blunt had last month, when a man's foot was run over in a paparazzi crowd. And Lindsay Lohan's BMW lurched into a photographer in New York on March 13. Reality-TV idea: When Snappers Turn From Hunters to Celebrity Prey.
