DA: Paparazzi Didn't Trap Witherspoon

Paparazzi who allegedly chased Reese Witherspoon from her gym to her home won't face charges, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Although photographers did follow the actress, there wasn't evidence of false imprisonment, William C. Hodgman, head of the district attorney office's Target Crimes Unit, said Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

"I have no doubt Ms. Witherspoon was besieged by the paparazzi that day," said Detective Jeff Dunn, head of the Los Angeles Police Department's Threat Management Unit. "But through witnesses and videotapes, we weren't able to corroborate the incident Ms. Witherspoon described."

Witherspoon, the star of Legally Blonde, filed a false-imprisonment complaint against photographers in April after she claimed they surrounded her at a gym, followed her and then blocked her at the entrance of her own home.
