Melbourne: Lara Bingle has been ordered to appear in court next month for allegedly hitting a motorcyclist and driving on a suspended licence in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
She would have to appear at Waverly Local Court on July 3 on four charges - not giving way to a vehicle, driving while suspended, failure to give notice of change of address and not providing particulars to the other driver - following an incident in Bondi Beach on May 14.
The model – who is now in Mumbai filming for her Network Ten reality series ‘Being Lara Bingle’ – declined to comment on the incident, stating it was “with her lawyers”.
But her new agent, Chrissy Biasotto, told The Sunday Telegraph the Bingle, who lost her licence last year for speeding, would be fighting the charges, News.com.au reported.
It is said that motorcyclist Niki Vinnicombe suffered minor shoulder injuries as a result of the alleged accident.
Channel 10 said that while this was not part of its new reality series, they were aware of Bingle’s pending court appearance.
“We are aware Lara was (allegedly) involved in a traffic incident. The matter is before the court and we are not in a position to make any further comment. We were not filming at the time,” a spokesman said.
