Shia Wasn’t Drunk?

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Isabel Lucas’ mother released a statement that says just that.  It could be wishfull thinking, but maybe there is something to it.  She claims her daughter wouldn’t get into the car with a drunk driver, and that according to Isabel it was just a “normal car accident.”

Crash May Not Be Shia’s Fault

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

According to the Los Angeles Times the crash may have been the fault of the other driver.  I guess because of the DUI, everyone had been assuming that Shia was the cause of the accident as well.  It’ll be interesting to see what the court decides next month.

Named Witness Steps Forward With Information

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Another witness of the crash stepped forward today, this time with a name! Brian Perrulli saw the crash, and overheard some of what Shia and the other driver were saying. According to Perrulli: “Shia was tending to the other people in the car, signing over information, like insurance and stuff and basically, I overheard the guy tell him, ‘You should just get out of here and go,’ and Shia said, ‘Nah man. I gotta deal with this. My license plate, it’s my car. I don’t wanna go, I gotta deal with this.’ The guy Shia hit told him, ‘You should get outta here,’ and ‘I never saw you.’ He said, ‘I never saw you,’ and Shia said, ‘No, man, I gotta stay here and deal with this. It’s my problem,” In the article, Perrulli also says that Shia seemed more shocked than intoxicated.

Was Isabel Lucas The Passenger?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

US Magazine has a report that the female passenger in Shia’s car at the time of the accident was his Revenge of the Fallen co-star, Isabel Lucas. This information is from a “source” so we don’t know how accurate it is. In this same article, another “source” says that Shia was doing shots at Troubadour Club before the accident. It’s hard to believe that he was only issued a DUI if he was seen stumbling out of a club just before the accident.

Witnesses, Pictures, and Speculation

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Updates have been pouring in from various sites and news agencies.  TMZ has a picture of the accident as well as an account from a supposed witness. The picture is hard to make out, but you can tell that there’s a truck flipped over in the intersection. They also have a video up of what Shia’s truck looks like now.

E! Online states that Shia’s injuries could keep him off the set of Revenge of the Fallen for a month, and that his court date has been tentatively set for August. They also have a short clip of the scene of the accident, though it appears that Shia and the other injured parties had already gone.

MSNBC has a statement from a source close to Shia: “He really is a good kid. He’s been a star most of his life, and he made it this far before making a mistake of this magnitude, it’s way too early for anyone to be lumping him in the Disney-star-gone-bad category. He’s not going to take this lightly. Shia knows how quickly you can lose everything in Hollywood. He isn’t going to be a Lindsay Lohan.”
