Spatial Join - Count of Points within a distance of a Line

Hi All

I am trying count the number of points within a distance of 1.5m of a line.

I have the count part down no problem.. Spatial join --> One to One --> Intersect --> Search Radius of 1.5m

This gives me the a field with the Count of points within 1.5m of each line

 

Only problem is I have lines that intersect, and if there is a point near this intersection and within 1.5m of both lines the one point will be added as a count to BOTH lines.  I know why this happens, but my question is how would you all go about fixing it?  For my purposes, the points can only be counted once, and that would be to the closest line..

 

Is there a way to set the join so that the points are only counted once?
