(Newser) – Brad Pitt is OK after banging up his brand-new motorcycle today. Despite early reports of paparazzi involvement, it turns out to be fairly mundane: He tried to squeeze between a parked car and another at a red light when his handlebars clipped the parked car and he fell over. Nobody else was involved. He reportedly pushed his bike to the curb, then phoned a friend to pick him up from a nearby apartment building.
