L.A. BRIEFS : ROCKER EDDIE MONEY ARRESTED IN BATTERY.

STUDIO CITY - Veteran rocker Eddie Money, who hit the Top 10 twice in the 1980s with ``Take Me Home Tonight'' and ``Walk on Water,'' was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of battery and booked at the Van Nuys jail, a police sergeant said.

``Apparently he struck some individual,'' said Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Christopher Vasquez. ``I don't know the particulars. What he was fighting over or anything else.''

Money, a 49-year-old Westlake Village resident, was involved in an altercation outside an apartment in the 4200 block of Arch Drive in Studio City, the sergeant said.

``The individual that he was involved with made a private person's arrest for battery,'' Vasquez said. Police received the call about 9:15 p.m. and took Money into custody, he said.

Earlier this month, Money performed a benefit concert to raise cash for the Newbury Park High marching band.

Money, who is married with five children, also had Top 40 hits with ``Baby Hold On,'' ``Two Tickets to Paradise'' and ``Maybe I'm a Fool.''

Car kills Valley man after church service

VAN NUYS - After attending a church service Sunday, a 72-year-old Woodland Hills man walked onto Sherman Way, where he was hit by a car and killed.

The man, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives, was jaywalking in the 17300 block of Sherman Way, said Lt. Steven Allen of the Los Angeles Police Department's traffic division.

``He was looking at a bus that was obstructing his vision of a car that was moving much faster,'' Allen said.

The driver of the blue, 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass was not cited, he said.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said the man suffered massive body injuries, including two broken legs, in the 12:20 p.m. accident.
