While it may be hard to prove if Bruce Jenner was using his phone while driving, any evidence of such could get the Kardashians patriarch in a lot of trouble.
Police in California are reportedly investigating whether Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Bruce Jenner was texting or making calls while driving before the multi-car crash that injured seven and killed one person.

According to a report from TMZ, law enforcement sources told the tabloid network that they will get warrants for both Bruce’s phone records and the cellphone itself. It is against the law to text while driving in California, and if, in fact, Jenner was using his phone while he was driving at the time he struck a car on PCH in Malibu, California police could potentially charge him with vehicular manslaughter in the death of the person who was killed in the crash.
But TMZ also noted that there is little, if any, evidence that definitively prove that Jenner was even using his phone, nor was there evidence that he was distracted while driving, as TMZ’s law enforcement sources noted that there was evidence Jenner had tried diligently to avoid crashing.
A former Olympic Gold Medalist in the decathlon back in the 1970s, Bruce Jenner became a major celebrity after his marriage to Kris Jenner and becoming the patriarch of the Kardashian family on the E! hit show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
It was recently revealed that Jenner is transitioning into becoming a woman, and that his transformation will be documented in a mini-series later this year.
