Justin Guarini may go to jail for almost hitting a 5-year-old with his jet ski.
On Saturday American Idol runner-up Justin Guarini either almost hit a five-year-old girl with a jet ski at a lake in Texas. At the time, Justin “was with contest winner Kelly Clarkson, of Burleson, when he was cited for unsafe boat operation,” the Star-Telegram reports. The girl’s dad “said Guarini and Clarkson were rude and confrontational to his party and the police and Coast Guard auxillarymen who arrived on the scene.” Justin was ticketed; the possible penalty if he’s convicted of the offense: “a fine of up to $2,000 and a maximum 180 days in jail.”
