Paparazzi phtothrapher not charged in Lindsay Lohan car crash

UPI News Service, 12/29/2005 

Criminal charges will not be filed in Los Angeles County against the photographer who crashed his car into Lindsay Lohan's Mercedes-Benz in May.

The district attorney's office Wednesday said there wasn't enough evidence to prove Galo Cesar Ramirez hit Lohan's car on purpose, The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

"We considered two charges, felony stalking and assault with a deadly weapon, and found there was insufficient evidence on both," William Hodgman, deputy district attorney in charge of the Target Crimes Division, told the Times.

Police and state lawmakers had used the case as an example of both police and lawmakers had cited the case as an example of aggressive behavior by paparazzi in arguing for tougher laws to protect Tinseltown's celebrities.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger answered the cries by signing a bill making it easier for celebrities to collect major damages from agencies that employ overzealous photographers.

Lohan's reps said the young star was thankful for the district attorney's careful consideration of the case, but declined further comment.
