BIG BRO BABE ON MURDER BID CHARGE
It was ‘drunken hit-and-run’
A BIG Brother star has been charged with attempted murder after a man was allegedly mown down deliberately by a car in a hit-and-run incident.
Natalie Langer who became a household name for her frequent strips in the Big Brother house has now gone on trial.
The 34-year-old blonde, who has won various ‘Miss’ titles 20 times, is accused of running over a man in June 2013 and then speeding off, leaving him for dead.
A court heard that the alleged victim only escaped bleeding to death because another motorist spotted him, and raised the alarm.
Speaking to the court at the start of the proceedings, Langer claims to have no memory of what happened and said that because she was drunk, she does not even remember how she got home that evening.
She said she could not explain how she had apparently ended up driving after going out with friends to a restaurant in Berlin and drinking wine, then heading to the a club in the city until 3am.
The celebrations continued in another bar until five in the morning. Eyewitnesses said that she was so drunk, she could hardly walk, and at one stage was crawling across the floor.
Despite that, she managed to leave the club and got into her Mercedes C200 which she then drove home. At around 6am she allegedly hit the 50-year-old.
When he was delivered to hospital, it was found he’d suffered a fractured skull and numerous broken bones and had also lost a substantial amount of blood.
Langer said her fiancé had asked her the next day about a dent in the car, and she was unable to explain it. She told the court she could remember nothing.
She said that later she had been for a walk with her fiancé and the dog, and had been surprised at the chalk marks indicating an accident on a road nearby.
Langer also told the court in Berlin she had been shocked when a neighbour told her there been an accident. Then her boyfriend had again asked about the dent in the car, suggesting maybe they should report to the police. When she refused the suggestion, he had then decided to take the car to Poland to have it repaired.
However, the 43-year-old fiancé decided instead to smash the car into a tree and leave it at the side of the road hoping that someone would steal it.
But after Natalie told German police it was stolen, the wreck was found and returned.
Langer’s fiancé is also on trial accused of attempting to cover up a crime. The trial continues.
