The man responsible for rear-ending the car of Jennifer Lopez, her best friend actress Leah Remini and their children in Malibu, California, before driving away while drunk has been identified as a 53 year-old male, Robert J. Reitz of Las Vegas.

Shortly after being apprehended by local authorities, Reitz was charged with a misdemeanour for the car crash and was released from jail on $15,000 bail on Sunday (Sept 28th), according to the New York Daily News.

On Saturday (Sept 27th), Lopez and her 6 year-old twins, along with Remini and her 10 year-old daughter were in the singer's new SUV on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when they stopped at a red light. Moments later an alleged drunk driver, who was in a small pickup truck, hit them from behind before driving off.
