LeAnn Rimes Questioned by Police for Hit-and-Run
LeAnn Rimes was questioned by LAPD officers Thursday night for a misdemeanor hit and run, a spokeswoman for the police department confirms to Usmagazine.com.
The accident happened "between 7:30 and 7:45 p.m. in the West Los Angeles area, where the incident occurred," says Officer Norma Eisenman.
Eisenman confirmed a report by the Los Angeles Times that Rimes was questioned at her home. No other details -- including if anyone was injured -- are available. "It's an ongoing investigation," Eisenman adds.
A rep for Rimes tells Us: "There was a routine police investigation into this incident, and a police report was filed. We are confident that this matter will be resolved shortly and LeAnn will be cleared."
Earlier that afternoon, Rimes debuted her relationship with Eddie Cibrian, with whom she's been having an affair, as Us Weekly first reported. The couple went golfing in Valencia, Calif.
