Pete Davidson must perform community service and attend traffic school after colliding with a Beverly Hills residence.
IN LOS ANGELES— Officials announced on Monday that Pete Davidson must attend traffic school and complete mandatory community service for colliding his car into a Beverly Hills residence this year.
Following the incident, Davidson was charged with misdemeanor negligent driving, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office last month.
The Beverly Hills Police Department reports that Davidson was traveling in the Beverly Hills flats on March 4 when his Mercedes jumped the curb, struck a fire hydrant, and crashed into a residence. The actor was driving the vehicle with his fiancée, Chase Sui Wonders, in the passenger seat, according to the police.
Neither the BHPD nor the district attorney reported any significant injuries as a result of the collision.
The police stated that they did not believe alcohol or drugs played a role in the accident, and Davidson waited for police to appear at the scene. They noted that he was cooperative and courteous.
On Monday, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office stated that Davidson was placed on an 18-month “diversion program” as an alternative to prosecution.
The program mandates that he complete 12 hours of traffic school as well as 50 hours of community service. According to the spokesperson, Davidson is permitted to serve all three sentences in the state of New York. They added that Davidson’s legal representation “indicates (his community service) will likely be completed at NYFD.”
Scott Davidson, Davidson’s firefighter father, perished in the World Trade Center terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, when Davidson was 7 years old.
Police viewed surveillance footage of the March 4 collision and determined that speed played a role.
Last month, the district attorney stated, “We believe Mr. Davidson engaged in reckless driving, which ultimately led to his involvement in a serious collision into a home.”
A Davidson representative did not respond to requests for comment.
A source close to Davidson confirmed to TODAY.com on June 28 that the actor had entered rehab. The actor has previously sought treatment for mental health issues, including borderline personality disorder, anxiety, and depression.
