Pete Davidson was driving recklessly with his girlfriend, Chase Sui Wonders, in the passenger seat when he crashed into a home in Beverly Hills, damaging properties. Fortunately, no one was hurt by his recklessness earlier this year.
However, while the homeowners refused to file charges, Pete has been sentenced to 50 hours of community service, subjected to an 18-month diversion program, and 12 hours of traffic school at a hospital to be educated on the damning outcomes of reckless driving. The above punishment will help clear the misdemeanor reckless driving charges off his record.
Famous comedian and general celebrity Pete Davidson is going to have to do 50 hours of community service as part of his punishment for reckless driving.
It was confirmed to Page Six by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office that there should be no criminal offence on his record as long as he complies with the regulations that have been set out for him.
Davidson is going to be entered into an 18-month diversion program as part of the punishment, following an incident that took place in March. He crashed his car into someone’s Beverley Hills home and was given one count of misdemeanour reckless driving.
“We believe that Mr. Davidson engaged in reckless driving, which ultimately resulted in his involvement in a serious collision into a home,” a spokesperson for the DA’s office said at the time.
“Luckily, no one was seriously injured as a result of this collision. We know that reckless driving can have devastating consequences.”
It was reported that Davidson was driving his Mercedes at high speeds when he jumped a curb, hit a fire hydrant and skidded against someone’s lawn before hitting their house.
As well as the 50 hours of community service, Davidson is also going to have to do 12 hours of traffic school and be educated at a hospital or morgue on the possible results of reckless driving.
His community service hours are going to be served at the New York City Fire Department. This is where his father worked before he was killed during the 9/11 terror attacks in New York City.
The owners of the home decided not to file a lawsuit against Davidson and his partner who was in the car.
However, considering Pete’s past history, he is likely to disobey authority and not go through with the above punishments, worsening his case in the future.
