Man charged in J.Lo car crash

LOS ANGELES - A Las Vegas man has been charged with drunk driving after he crashed into Jennifer Lopez’s Rolls Royce, in which she was riding, in Malibu, California.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said in a statement Monday that 53-year-old Robert John Reitz was charged with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and driving at nearly twice the legal blood-alcohol limit.

He could get six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

Reitz is scheduled to be arraigned later Monday. Authorities did not have information on a possible attorney for him.

The singer-actress was stopped at a traffic light on the Pacific Coast Highway with her two kids and actress Leah Remini, who was driving the car, in September when a pickup truck hit her vehicle from behind.
