Man charged with DUI in crash with Jennifer Lopez

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Las Vegas man has been charged with crashing into Jennifer Lopez's Rolls-Royce on the California coast while drunk.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said in a statement Monday that 53-year-old Robert John Reitz was charged with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and driving at nearly twice the legal blood-alcohol limit. He could get six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

The singer-actress' vehicle was stopped at a traffic light in Malibu when a pickup truck hit it from behind.

Authorities say Lopez owned the Rolls-Royce carrying her and her two children, but her friend, actress Leah Remini, was driving. No one was injured in the September crash.

Reitz is scheduled to be arraigned later Monday. Authorities didn't know if he had an attorney.
