Richards and husband/fellow actor Aaron Phypers were driving to Popsicle Studio L.A. when Phypers, who was behind the wheel, was having difficulty finding the studio.
A driver behind them became agitated and started shouting at them, and eventually opened fire on the truck, hitting the back end on the driver’s side, according to TMZ.
TMZ obtained a photo of the bullet hole.
No one was hurt.
A production worker at the studio called 911, although it was not immediately known if the couple filed a police report.
“Denise powered through the emotions of it all and worked for 12 hours … Aaron stayed with her the whole time. When she was ready to leave, an off-duty cop who was on set escorted Denise and Aaron back to the freeway, where they made their way home,” the TMZ report said.
