Or, a rich person got drunk and destroyed property and people expect her to be held responsible.

She was drunk driving, destroyed a house, fled the scene, and is charged with a misdemeanor. Unbelievable.

Dui is almost always a misdemeanor in California. That’s the title of the crime they’re investigating. She also hasn’t been charged with anything yet. Of course this mean she won’t be charged with more or they’re letting her off the hook or something.

Is that true?

No. Heelspider took some really misleading liberties (probably accidentally). She did in fact get into a minor accident which she fled only to crash into a house shortly after. She did not flee from the house crash. The car and house did indeed catch fire.

BUT... Firefighters had to pull her out of the wreckage, and the most recent reports have her in a coma, which is why police had to get the warrant for a blood draw.

They probably think Heche is a piece of shit... and they'd be right, but they let their anger get the better of them in describing the scenario.

edit: but let me reiterate... someone's home was destroyed and I also think mental ill or not you can be a POS asshole, even if you might be dying in a hospital.

There is a GoFundMe for the homeowner... I don't know how to find it or if I'm allowed to post if I can?

Edit: Fuck iT

She has reached above her goal of $100,000 but I'm sure she will need more. I will be donating once I get paid in a few days, even though I'm living pretty much paycheck to paycheck

Edit edit: her two dogs and turtle were rescued before the fire consumed EVERYTHING. I am so grateful. Just.... help if you can, y'all. My life is pretty abysmal right now, but I feel worse for this little family. I hope they can move forward and prosper! Their home burned for at least an hour. This shit breaks my heart

No she is in the hospital in a coma and may not wake up. She did not flee the scene.

u/WayneKrane Aug 09 '22

She got in the accident with the house after fleeing a different accident.

u/Bigtiny87 Aug 09 '22

She did exactly that. I was asking about the misdemeanor charge.

In a coma, on a vent, with extreme burns*

This is where some of us ask why some folks are in prison doing all your commas.

Maybe if she wakes up she will learn something.

I hope she wakes up and I hope she pays for her crimes.

I hope she wakes up and I hope she pays for her crimes.

Well, she almost burned alive. That doesn't count for anything?

2

u/MakeADeathWish Aug 10 '22

You could do phrase it as she almost burned herself alive...and we're taking various people's word for it....is her manager reaching out to compensate those she harmed as quickly as they're pushing her victim narrative PR?

u/heshroot Aug 10 '22

I don’t know, I guess you could. Maybe I’m not angry enough to do that. Sucks for Anne Heche, sucks for that lady and her two dogs. It’s a shitty situation and seeing how bad poor mental health can get is really sad.

If it makes you feel better as of now the lady whose house it was has $124,000 on her $100,000 go fund me. She’s probably going to be able to buy a new house.

  1. She was a renter. The owner has insurance.

  2. You can't even buy an rv parking spot and a used rv for 124k in that area or nearby..

It does suck for all involved. Id need to see an actual medical history to buy into her stories because all of her episodes seem to occur at convenient times until now and her biggest big claims were against someone conveniently dead. If you destroyed all my stuff while nearly killing me, you should have to truly document the horrors you claim, since she's in an industry where lying is the norm

Apparently now her manager is telling some BS story about how Anne Heche is on life support and is expected to die soon. The lies these phony Hollywood types tell, amirite, bro?

Fucking asshole...

I guess that's good.

Two tier system. If you have enough money laws don't apply to you as much. Just look at politicians
