FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY TO JAIL?

Justin Guarini is in a boatload of trouble for nearly running over a girl with a personal watercraft at a Texas lake Saturday. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the 24-year-old former American Idol runner-up was ticketed for unsafe boat operation after he ran the watercraft up on shore, stopping a few feet short of a 5-year-old girl. (Maybe his hair got in the way.) Guarini was with five friends, including AI winner Kelly Clarkson — who he still insists is not his girlfriend. If convicted, he faces a fine of up to $2,000 and a maximum 180 days in jail. Rumor has it authorities are willing to drop all charges if he promises to immediately put an end to his singing and acting careers.
