Jury selection has begun in the trial of Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves after a paparazzo accused him of negligence behind the wheel of his expensive car. Celebrity Photographer Alison Silva filed a suit against Reeves claiming the Speed actor knocked him to the ground in March 2007 with his black Porsche car. Silva alleges the ordeal left him out of work for several months and cost him $40,000 in medical bills to treat his injuries, and also claims he now needs $50,000 of bone graft surgery on his left wrist. Reeves’ lawyer, Alfred Gerisch, insists the photographer tripped over his own feet, telling the court the case is one of "overly aggressive paparazzi bent on getting a photograph of a celebrity at any cost, even if it puts the paparazzo’s own safety at risk". Both Reeves and Silva are expected to testify in the estimated five-day trial.
