Paparazzi Run-In, L.A. Edition
Date: May 31st, 2005
In one of the few Lohan vehicular incidents that don't involve substance abuse, Lindsay made headlines in the spring of '05 for this collision with a paparazzo named Galo Cesar Ramirez. Ramirez, and more of his kind, had flocked on the celebutante as she departed a restaurant, and Lindsay, fresh off of the Herbie set, tried and failed to pull some evasive maneuvers to escape the shuttering herdâ€”an impromptu U-turn sent her straight into Ramirez's vehicle.
While no one was hurt, or charged, the incident spurred then Governor Schwarzenegger to implement an anti-paparazzi law in the Sunshine state that would allow stars to collect hefty damage awards from the paps in future cases such as this one.
