Harvey is the stepdaughter of comedian and host Steve Harvey. The 22-year-old was issued a citation instead of being booked and was ordered to appear in court.
Police said the citation was written because Harvey left the scene of the collision without providing her information or contacting authorities as required by law. She was cited for misdemeanor hit and run and obstructing/delaying a police officer. She is scheduled to appear at the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse on Jan. 21, 2020.
OK! magazine, which first reported the crash and spoke to a witness, said Harvey was driving a Mercedes SUV that flipped over. The witness said an onlooker pulled Harvey from her car, but she allegedly attempted to run away from the scene. The witness alleged Harvey “was texting and distracted at the time of the wreck.”
The model and social media personality has been in the news lately for dating hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, 49. The two are said to have recently broken up.
Steve Harvey married Lori’s mom, Marjorie Harvey, in 2007.
