Tyrese Gibson Cited For Felony: Leaving The Scene Of A Car Accident?! (Photos)
Singer Tyrese Gibson was involved in a car accident on Jan. 4th along with Sheena McCleary, mother of 5 children, who says she was injured. After Tyrese and McCleary submitted their information to police, the two drove away in a taxi together. Now Miami police have cited the two for ‘leaving the scene on public or private property,’ I.E. felony.
According to photos and documents obtained by TMZ, both actor/singer Tyrese and Sheena McCleary, a mother of 5 and driver of the SUV that flipped over, may have been wrongfully cited for leaving the scene of a car accident in Miami on Jan. 4th, 2010. Police arrived and took their information, McCleary claimed to be injured but the two left in a taxi soon after headed to a spa for a massage. Moments later, Tyrese tweeted, “Mother of five left without 1 scratch and we ended up hangin at the spa for a massage.”
On Jan. 25th, Miami police sent a felony citation to both Tyrese and McCleary for ‘leaving the scene on public or private property-injury.’ But how could the two receive felony citations for fleeing the scene of an accident when paparazzi snapped photo’s of Tyson and McCleary talking to police? Could it be a simple mistake by the courts?
Tyrese’s lawyers Jayne Weintraub and Jon Sale filed papers on Thursday with the court clerks and submitted a not guilty plea on Tyrese’s behalf. Miami prosecutors are now deciding whether to pursue the case against Tyrese and Sheena McCleary. Tyrese’s lawyers say it is a mistake by the court and are looking to get the case dropped.
