The two people involved in a car crash with Shia LaBeouf last summer, have had their cases settled, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The horrific car crash happened in the early morning hours of July 27th, 2008 in Hollywood. Shia LaBeouf suffered injuries and his hand had to be operated on, when the car he was driving flipped over.
The crash allegedly occurred when Herbert Simon and Kimberly Bent ran a red light and LeBeouf subsequently hit their car.
Following the accident the couple was charged with misdemeanor lying to the police, after being accused of lying over who was driving the car at the time of the accident.
In August, Simon was cited for a vehicular infraction for running a red light, not because prosecutors were certain he was in the driver’s seat, but because the car was registered in his name.
Herbert Simon plead no contest in Beverly Hills courtroom Friday morning to giving false information to a police officer, and was ordered to perform 15 days of community labor or Caltrans, and pay restitution to LaBeouf, and significant fines.
Kimberly Bent, was not required to enter a plea because her case will be dismissed on March 12th, 2010 if she successfully completes 60 hours of community service.
Richard Pintal, lawyer for Kimberly Bent, tells RadarOnline.com, “We are very pleased with the resolution because Ms. Bent will have no criminal conviction nor criminal record. We believe under the circumstances it was a fair and just result.”
It was never established who was driving the car the couple were in.
LeBoeuf was arrested for a DUI that night, but the Los Angeles District Attorney rejected prosecution of the Hollywood star because of a lack of evidence.
