Actor Denise Richards was unharmed after shots were fired in a road rage incident Monday, a representative said.
Richards was heading to a film and TV studio in a pickup truck with her husband, Aaron, who had slowed as they looked for street parking when a passing motorist opened fire.
The incident was first reported by TMZ. Jill Fritzo, a representative for Richards, confirmed the account.
Denise was headed to Popsicle Studio L.A. Monday — with her husband, Aaron, in the driver’s seat.
We’re told Aaron was having a tough time finding the place, and the driver behind them was getting irritated, shouting at them while trying to squeeze in front of them.
Aaron let the guy pass, but the other driver wasn’t done … he shot at the truck, hitting the back end on the driver’s side. Fortunately, no one was injured.
Denise was unnerved, sobbing as she arrived on set. Someone from production saw the bullet hole on the truck and called 911. It’s unclear if cops came or took a report.
Denise powered through the emotions of it all and worked for 12 hours … Aaron stayed with her the whole time.
When she was ready to leave, an off-duty cop who was on set escorted Denise and Aaron back to the freeway, where they made their way home.
No one was injured. TMZ reported that police were called after someone at the studio spotted gunshot damage on the Ford Shelby F-150 truck.
It was not clear whether anyone went to the scene to take a report.
The Los Angeles Police Department, which has jurisdiction in the area of the studio, said that it had no record of such a report and that no investigation was underway.
“We don’t even know where it happened at this point,” Officer Melissa Podany said.
A spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol, which handles 911 calls from freeways and, often, near them, said he could find no record of such a report.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, whose deputies crisscross the area because they patrol nearby jurisdictions, including public transportation rail and bus lines, said the same.
TMZ published a photo of the rear of pickup, where damage from a round seems evident.
