Denise Richards Shot At During Road Rage Incident In L.A.
Facing deadly violence is fairly standard for anyone in a car in the hellscape that is Los Angeles, but you don’t usually hear about a celebrity being the victim. Today, that victim was Drop Dead Gorgeous star Denise Richards, who was shot at while riding as a passenger in her husband’s truck. Thankfully, the bullets missed her and no one was hurt, per TMZ:
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.
