(Newser) – A jury has found Keanu Reeves not liable for a paparazzo’s injuries sustained when the actor allegedly hit him with his car, People reports. Photographer Alison Silva said he injured his wrist after Reeves struck him while leaving a parking space, and the mishap left him unable to work. But Reeves’ attorneys countered by showing the jury footage of Silva climbing down a fence after filming Britney Spears.
