'Girls Gone Wild' distributor booked in CA death
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) -November 12, 2010 -- The head of the Australian distributor of "Girls Gone Wild" is accused in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Southern California.
Ryan Bowman of Zeal Entertainment was being held Friday on $2 million bail after being booked for felony vehicular manslaughter.
Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say Bowman's Bentley struck and killed 21-year-old Lauren Ann Freeman as she crossed a street Wednesday night in West Hollywood.
Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says she was thrown about 60 feet and the Bentley was found abandoned about a mile away.
The 34-year-old Bowman surrendered Thursday with his attorney and invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to speak.
Bowman remained in custody Friday and is due in court Monday. Whitmore says his passport was confiscated.
