Paparazzi Escape Without Charges Over Witherspoon Chase

Subscribe to Reese Witherspoon alerts

Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon is disappointed because a group of paparazzi who "besieged" her in April (05), will not face criminal charges of false imprisonment.

The Legally Blonde beauty, 29, told Los Angeles police photographers swarmed around her car as she left the gym and attempted to force her off the road. She also alleged the snappers surrounded her as she attempted to enter the West Los Angeles gated community where she lives with husband Ryan Phillippe and their two children AVA and DEACON.

In their defence, the photographers claimed they approached the actress outside the Brentwood gym, simply to inform her her vehicle had suffered minor damage from one of their colleagues.

Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Detective JEFF DUNN says, "I have no doubt Ms Witherspoon was besieged by the paparazzi that day. But through witnesses and videotapes, we weren't able to corroborate the incident Ms Witherspoon described."

In June (05), fellow Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan was left with minor injuries after photographer GALO RAMIREZ allegedly drove into her car on purpose. Ramirez was subsequently arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. The case in pending.
