Man charged over Lopez crash

A Las Vegas man has been charged with crashing into Jennifer Lopez's Rolls Royce in Malibu, California, while drunk.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said in a statement that 53-year-old Robert John Reitz was charged with misdemeanour 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 US dollar (£645) fine if he is convicted.

Reitz was scheduled to be arraigned later on Monday.

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

No-one was injured.
