*Lori Harvey has reportedly accepted a plea deal in her hit-and-run case.
She was arrested in Beverly Hills on Oct. 20, 2019, following the car accident in which her car was rolled.
We previously reported, earlier this year, the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office charged Harvey with one count of resisting/delaying/obstructing a peace officer, and one count of hit and run resulting in property damage. Both are misdemeanors, and she will avoid jail by accepting the plea deal.
Lori, the stepdaughter of Steve Harvey, has been sentenced to 2 years of probation. The stipulations of her probation have not been revealed, per TMZ.
According to an OK Magazine report, she initially walked away from the scene. An eye witness claims Harvey crashed her Mercedes SUV into another vehicle, flipping her car. The source claims she had been texting and driving. The driver of the other vehicle pulled Harvey from her car, and she allegedly attempted to flee the scene. Once police arrived at the crash, she began Face-Timing with her famous father.
At that point, Harvey was arrested on two counts: misdemeanor hit and run and delaying a police investigation. She was released at the scene.
“She was arrested for the two charges and released on scene, not booked. She identified herself properly and signed a written promise to appear in court,” the watch commander at Beverly Hills Police Department told OK! magazine. Authorities don’t think that Lori was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the collision. No one was injured in the accident.
“She identified herself properly and signed a written promise to appear in court,” the BHPD added.
Another OK Magazine report also noted that hours before the accident, Lori appeared to be enjoying a night out with friend Amaya Colon at celeb hot spot Nobu.
