Pair Involved in LaBeouf Crash Charged

By  | 

LOS ANGELES - Prosecutors have charged two people involved in an accident that injured Shia LaBeouf with giving police false information.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said Monday it filed one misdemeanor count apiece for Herbert Simon, 22, and Kimberly Bent, 21. A spokeswoman for Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley's office said Bent told police after the crash that she was driving, but that investigators suspect Simon was behind the wheel.

LaBeouf was initially arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, but prosecutors announced Thursday that there was "insufficient evidence" to file a formal charge. Investigators had previously determined that LaBeouf was not at fault for the wreck.
