The Matrix star was cleared of charges on Monday that claimed he deliberately hit a paparazzi with his car. “There was no evidence of the slightest contact or the slightest touching,” Los Angeles Superior Court judge Elizabeth Grimes said during a court hearing.
“It didn’t happen. Plainly Mr. Reeves intended to drive away. That intent is not lawful,” Grimes said, dismissing most of the lawsuit.
Photographer Alison Silva sued Keanu last year over injuries he said he suffered in a March ’07 incident when Reeves was trying to leave a Los Angeles area clinic in his Porsche.
The judge ruled however that the photographer fell because he tripped on his own feet, adding that Reeves himself appears to have been the victim of an assault when Silva put his hands on the actor’s car.
