A major Hollywood celebrity has just made headlines after an accident involving his vehicle. The accident took place last Friday morning.
The famous television host, Dr. Phil, accidentally hit a man with his car. Now, the pedestrian is threatening to sue Dr. Phil. However, some people believe he’s simply trying to extort money from the famous counselor.
Police have confirmed that a “minor traffic collision” has taken place near University City in Los Angeles. Thankfully, no one was hurt badly enough to need to be transported to the hospital.
"Dr. Phil just hit me with his car this morning. I filled a police report.. And injury.. Waiting for the dew process.. [sic]," a bodybuilder named Terrence Bembury posted on Instagram.
Bembury also posted another statement on his social media account. In the second statement, he mentioned he was forced to miss work and said he is seeking a lawyer.
"Thank Dr. Phil.. It felt amazing getting hit by your Mercedes.. Now I'm going on two days of missing work.. SmH. I meet with my Lawyer Monday.. This is a 100% winnable vase since Dr PHIL ran a stop sign and was in the wrong lane of traffic [sic]," he wrote.
A spokesman for Dr. Phil responded by saying Dr. Phil was happy to cooperate with law enforcement officers. The spokesman also said Dr. Phil had talked with the man at the scene and the pedestrian had assured him he would be fine.
"If there are any outstanding questions from the LAPD, he will, of course, be glad to answer them and believes he was operating within the law,” said the spokesman.
