Jury Deliberating in Celebrity Trial

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles jury has begun deliberating a
paparazzo's claim that actor Keanu Reeves knocked him down with his
Porsche and permanently injured his wrist.

Attorneys for both sides issued their closing arguments Friday
before the jury deliberated about five minutes and left for the
weekend. Jurors will resume work Monday.

Photographer Alison Silva claims the star of "The Matrix" hit
him with his car in March 2007 while Silva was trying to shoot
photos of Reeves. Silva says he was knocked to the pavement and his
wrist will never fully heal.

Reeves' lawyer, Alfred Gerisch, says Silva stumbled on his own
after he put his hand on the car's hood.

Silva's attorney, Joseph Farzam, says his client is $640,800 in
compensation.
