I also was accused of a hit and run (must be something about MN cops
). I was about 17 at the time. The car next to me had parked so close that my friends had to crawl through the driver side to get into the car. I barely bumped the car as I was backing up (my speedometer didn't even wiggle and I had my foot on the brake the whole time). We got out to look to see if there was any damage. None. So we left. I got home and my mom asked if I had something to tell her. Nope. Turns out someone said I did a H&R. Went to the cops, told them what happened. The guy said I did over $1000 worth of damage. Not possible. The cops took a look at my car, saw how upset I was and said that I couldn't have done that kind of damage (plastic bumpers). They said they'd tell the insurance company. Never heard anything about it again. Some people.
