MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say an SUV carrying actress Leah Remini and singer Jennifer Lopez and her two kids, was rear-ended by a suspected drunken driver who then fled the scene.
Los Angeles county Sheriff’s Sgt. Philip Brooks says Remini was driving Lopez’s SUV at about 8 p.m. Saturday and stopped at a traffic light near the 22700 block of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Their vehicle was rear-ended by a pickup truck. No one was injured.
The drivers got out of their vehicles to assess the minor damage and were about to exchange information when the man got into his truck and drove off.
Deputies stopped him a short distance away. He was arrested and booked on suspicion of drunken driving and hit and run.
Brooks didn’t have the man’s name. TMZ first reported the crash.
