The star — known for playing Diane Russell in the ABC police drama — ended up being charged with hit-and-run property damage, a misdemeanor, for allegedly slamming into Badalov and fleeing the scene.

Badalov claimed bystanders witnessed Delaney swerving in and out of lanes before allegedly running into his motorcycle and sending him flying toward the intersection.

According to the lawsuit, the Emmy-winning actress allegedly tried driving away after the crash but was stopped by witnesses. Badalov claimed Delaney seemed out of sorts and suggested she might have been intoxicated.

He claimed when she eventually exited her vehicle, she called someone who allegedly attempted to bribe him with money if he didn't report the incident to the police. Badalov said he refused the offer.

Delaney asked the judge to toss the case in February and denied all allegations of wrongdoing.
