Paula Abdul's hit-and-run memory improves, pleas no contest

UPI News Service, 03/25/2005 

"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul has pleaded no contest in a hit-and-run incident for which a spokesman said she had been unaware.

Lawyers for the California celebrity answered one count of misdemeanor hit-and-run with a no-contest plea Thursday that resulted in Abdul being fined $300. A 24-month suspended sentence also was handed down, Celebrity Justice reported Friday.

Abdul also paid the people in the other vehicle $775.

"Late last year, while driving on the Hollywood freeway, unbeknownst to Paula, there was some minor contact between the tire of her car and another vehicle on the roadway," her lawyers said.

"The result was a small amount of property damage to the other car and no damage to Paula's car. This week, after learning that it had been determined that her car was actually involved, Paula immediately took full responsibility. She is pleased the matter could be resolved today in traffic court."
