Paparazzo Assault Against Keanu Reeves Cleared
Paparazzo Alison Silva filed a case against Keanu Reeves for allegedly hitting her with his Porsche. That was in March 2007. Several months after, the ruling is in. Los Angeles judge Elizabeth A. Grimes ruled in favor of Keanu Reeves, saying that she can't seek punitive damages against him.
Silva said that she fractured her wrists and need several surgeries to fix it. However, Keanu Reeves maintained that the whole episode was an accident, and that he actually stopped his car when Silva fell on her own. He even gave her water to calm her down.
The court decided in favor of Reeves, saying there was no malice intended in the incident. More about this story here.
