Bruce Jenner Texting? Cops Want A Search Warrant
Search warrants for both Bruce’s phone records and his cell phone will likely be administered, TMZ reports.
According to California law, it is illegal to text while driving. If Bruce was texting and driving, he could face a vehicular manslaughter charge if he is the one found responsible for the four-car accident. This could lead to up to six years in jail.
Photos of Bruce inside his car at the time of the accident show that his arm is raised. There’s no way to tell if he has a phone in his hand or if he has his arm raised for another reason.
In addition to the one fatality, seven more people were injured, including five children.
Police are currently investigating what caused the crash.
