Hollywood was abuzz earlier this month when renowned actor and director Michael B. Jordan, aged 36, was involved in a car crash on December 2nd. Initially, the incident involving Jordan's blue Ferrari colliding with a parked car did not raise suspicions of foul play.
Speaking to Page Six, officials stated there were no apparent signs of anything "nefarious," and there was "no evidence of DUI" at the scene. However, recent developments have cast a new light on the incident. A video uploaded to Instagram this Tuesday has added a dramatic twist to the narrative.
The footage allegedly shows Jordan's Ferrari in a high-speed race with a red Ferrari moments before the crash. The video, captured from a third person's dashboard camera, is captioned, "Michael B. Jordan crashing out in Hollywood racing another Ferrari," and depicts the blue Ferrari losing control and colliding with a parked Kia.
Race Leads to Probe
Entertainment Tonight obtained an exclusive interview with the driver of the red sports car, Tenshi Angel, on Friday. Angel described the situation as initially benign, saying they were "just vibing out" when Jordan's Ferrari appeared alongside his.
The encounter escalated from casual cruising to revving engines, leading up to a spontaneous race. "Honk[ed] three times. I took off, and that's what happened," Angel recounted.
Authorities, having viewed this new evidence, are reassessing the case.
Sources close to TMZ revealed that the focus is now on proving Jordan was driving the vehicle. The implications of this new development are significant. If the investigation uncovers "criminal culpability," Jordan might face criminal charges, starkly contrasting the initial dismissal of any serious wrongdoing.
This incident has sparked widespread media attention and speculation, with fans and critics waiting for further updates. As the investigation continues, the question remains: will Michael B. Jordan be charged, and what will be the repercussions for the acclaimed actor's career and public image? This story is still unfolding, and more details are expected to emerge as the investigation progresses.
