James Blunt will not be charged over a claim that he drove over someone’s foot while leaving a party in February, the city attorney’s office said Friday.
“After review of the information provided, we’ve decided not to file charges at this time,” city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said without further comment.
Police investigated a man’s claim that he was injured at a Feb. 24 Bel-Air Estates bash. Some witnesses reported that Blunt was driving the car, police said.
Calls and an e-mail Friday to the 30-year-old singer’s publicist, Sheila Richman, weren’t immediately returned.
Richman released a statement in February saying Blunt and his car were “swarmed by paparazzi” and that he was “trying to navigate his car through all of the people” at “2 mph.”
