Police: Lance Armstrong hit parked cars, had girlfriend take the blame
The week.com 2/3/15
Quote:
How chivalrous! Aspen police say that former pro cyclist Lance Armstrong
hit two parked cars while driving his SUV, and let his girlfriend Anna Hansen take the fall.

On Dec. 28, Hansen told a homeowner that she hit the two cars parked in front of his house
with her vehicle, the Aspen Daily News reports. She gave him her contact information
but did not file a police report, and Hansen was cited for failing to report an accident
and exceeding safe speed for conditions.

That makes sense to me, though. A famous person gets in a fender-bender, and people start getting all sorts of ideas about suing for extra injuries, making a press spectacle out of it, etc. It's a civil crime, and a tiny one at that, it's not like she was going to take jail time for him.

Also, failing to report an accident in itself is a crime? Like when the other driver and I just exchange insurance information and go along our way, that's not good enough?

If the damage is estimated to be above a certain amount, you are supposed to report it. And last I saw, that amount was so low, that most accidents exceed it by far. Something like $400.

YMMV

Hmmmm..... the details are a bit more complex

Here is 1:

Police were called to West Francis Street on Dec. 29 by a homeowner
who said he was the victim of a hit-and-run accident the night before,
according to a report by Aspen police detective Rick Magnuson.

He's always been a beady-eyed fake. Referring to my last post in this thread, I wouldn't date Lance, either. Come on! Show me the money so I don't have to work? Not that he would ever date me even if I wanted...

Though I do think there are opportunists, I think a lesser opportunistic action is to get upset about a hit and run than, say, cheating and lying and faking your entire life.

Sure, if it turns out it really was a hit-and-run then that's different. And I wouldn't take the blame for Lance specifically, I'm only saying I'd take the hit for the person I love if HE were famous.

Yeah, it doesn't sound like they were trying to avoid responsibility, just headlines.

But the real point is they were both lying.
We already know the character of Lance Armstrong.

But she was willing to take the blame for something she did not do.
That's what qualifies her for membership in the S.B.S club

If that's the point, so what? Nobody was harmed, nobody was cheated except maybe the tabloids. I can see why she would try to protect the family, her children, herself, knowing they would take financial responsibility to fix the damage.

I can readily believe she/they didn't know about the must report to police law. That's an unusual law, most police departments aren't interested unless somebody is hurt, they're blocking traffic, or there's damage to a donut shop.

And one more time...

George Zimmerman involved in Florida shooting
Fox News - ‎25 minutes ago‎

Quote:
According to WESH, the shooting involved two men and Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound and was taken to a local hospital.

"The injuries are not serious," Lake Mary Deputy Police Chief Colin Morgan said.

"I don't know exactly what precipitated it, but another motorist pulled up alongside him and fired a shot at him," Zimmerman's attorney Don West said. "I believe that the window of the vehicle was broken. As I understand it he was shot through the passenger window and the bullet narrowly missed his head and lodged the roof."

Morgan said the other man reportedly has been involved in other cases with Zimmerman in the past.

He added that Zimmerman will be brought to the police station when he leaves the hospital.

Not to sound like a vigilante or anything but doesn't George Zimmerman, himself, constitute provocation?

Every bit as much as Trayvon Martin did.

That was my thought.

Did you ever see an antagonist walking? Well, I did.
Did you ever see an antagonist talking? Well, I did.
Did you ever see an antagonist packing? Well, I did.
And the antagonist in my sites, was you.
