    Is Eva Longoria Parker Really a Lousy Driver?

    Police say Eva Longoria Parker didn't do anything wrong. But that's not stopping this dude from making a play for some of her Desperate Housewives money.

    Calling out the TV star for her "negligence, carelessness and unlawfulness" during a motoring mishap  last week, the driver who swapped paint with Parker is suing mad.

    Here's the deal.

    Roman Gasparyan claims in court docs filed today that Longoria Parker wasn't paying attention behind the wheel of her BMW X5 when she "made a sudden lane change into the median lane." That's where the plaintiff, who was also driving a BMW X5, was about to make a left turn. Instead, the two Beamers wound up colliding.

    The suit seeks unspecified damages for mental anguish as well as back and neck pain he claims to have suffered. For good measure, Gasparyan also names her NBA star hubby, Tony Parker, as a defendant.

    This, despite authorities telling E! News last week that Longoria Parker was in the clear.

    The actress' rep took that theme and ran with it in a statement:

    "There is absolutely no truth to this claim, and any indications to the contrary are completely false and untrue. Longoria made no sudden turn, did not violate any traffic violations nor did she make any sudden lane changes.

    "The other driver is clearly trying to make a case where there is none. All charges are frivolous, without merit, and will not hold up in a court of law."

    In other words, don't mess with a Desperate Housewife.

    UPDATE: Longoria's lawyer, Stephen Maslauski, confirmed to E! News on Aug. 3, 2012, that the matter had been "resolved."
