The photographer whose collision with actress Lindsay Lohan helped prompt California to adopt an anti-paparazzi law won't be charged with a crime
Back then to the recent car crash happened to teen actress Lindsay Lohan involving a photographer that at last prompted Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to sign into law a measure allowing celebrities to collect large damage awards from paparazzi who harass them. The decision concerning the case has been made.
Galo Cesar Ramirez, the related photographer accused of crashing his minivan into Lohan's Mercedes-Benz, is freed because there was no evidence of it. "Based upon the damage sustained to both the victim's and the suspect's cars it appears that, although the suspect was most likely driving carelessly when he collided with the victim's car, it was not an intentional assault," Deputy District Attorney William Hodgman said.
Further Hodgman revealed that a wider examination is still ongoing into paparazzi tactics, including possible conspiracy charges against persons responsible for orchestrating some of the riskiest pursuits.
