Man arrested in hit-and-run of actor Ryan Reynolds

April 14, 2015

A 52-year-old photographer from Vancouver was arrested for last week’s hit-and-run of actor Ryan Reynolds, who was not seriously injured in the incident.


Reynolds, who is in Vancouver shooting the Marvel film “Deadpool,” got into a confrontation with the photographer in a hotel parking garage on Friday night, Vancouver police said. The man struck the actor with his car as he was fleeing the scene.

The incident left Reynolds with a sore knee and back, but he was able to return to work the following day.

Police are recommending charges of intimidation against the photographer, who remains in custody.
