MALIBU (CNS) - Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives Tuesday were investigating an alleged hit-and-run crash in Malibu involving actor Gary Busey, who was followed on Pacific Coast Highway and recorded on cell phone video by the woman whose vehicle was damaged.
The woman told TMZ the crash occurred last Wednesday when she was driving on PCH and Busey pulled out of a shopping center and struck the rear bumper of her vehicle, then drove away. The woman began following him and turned on her cell phone camera, shouting at the actor as she follows him.
Busey eventually pulls into a parking lot, where the woman continues yelling at him, saying he hit her car and needs to stop so she can get his insurance information. But the actor refuses to comply, and he is heard on video saying, "I'm private."
He then gets back in his car and drives away.
The video shows damage on both cars.
The sheriff's Malibu/Lost Hills Station confirmed Monday it was looking into the incident.
Busey, 79, is best known for his Oscar-nominated title role in 1978's "The Buddy Holly Story." His credits also include "Lethal Weapon," "Point Break" and "Under Seige." His most recent film was 2021's "Reggie: A Millennial Depression Comedy."
