Pete Davidson, the well-known 29-year-old actor and comedian renowned for his roles in “Saturday Night Live” and “King of Staten Island,” has taken proactive steps to address a reckless driving charge stemming from a collision with a residence in Beverly Hills. In an effort to resolve the legal matter, Davidson participated in a diversion program, as confirmed by authorities.
As part of the resolution, Davidson will be undertaking 50 hours of community service. Notably, he is expected to complete this service with the New York Fire Department, the same department where his late father heroically served before tragically losing his life during the 9/11 attacks, when Pete was just 7 years old.
Although Davidson pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanour, he chose to participate in an 18-month diversion program. This program also includes 12 hours of traffic school and an agreement to uphold all laws, in addition to unspecified restitution.
The incident in question occurred on March 4 and was described by prosecutors as a “serious collision.” Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.
Despite navigating the legal proceedings, Pete Davidson has remained dedicated to his career in the entertainment industry. His latest show, “Bupkis,” premiered on Peacock in May, and he is set to star in the upcoming film “Dumb Money.”
