Pete Davidson Is Being Charged With Reckless Driving After Crashing Into A Beverly Hills Home

June 17, 2023 / Posted by:

The verdict is in! After crashing his Mercedes into a Beverly Hills home back in March after, Pete Davidson finally got his long-awaited slap on the wrist. Pete’s getting charged with reckless driving, which can possibly result in a $1,000 fine, a knock on his driver’s license, and, worst case scenario, a sentence of up to 90 days in jail.

After returning from a Hawaiian getaway with his girlfriend, Chase Sui Wonders, Pete traded in crashing waves for crashing homes after speeding through a residential area around 11 pm with Chase riding shotgun. According to CNN:

Greg Risling, assistant chief of media relations at the LA County District Attorney’s office, said Davidson is being charged with one misdemeanor count of reckless driving. His arraignment is scheduled for July 27.

“We believe that Mr. Davidson engaged in reckless driving, which ultimately resulted in his involvement in a serious collision into a home,” Rislong said. “Luckily, no one was seriously injured as a result of this collision. We know that reckless driving can have devastating consequences.”

Right now, it’s unclear if Pete has covered or plans on covering the costs of the property damages, but according to TMZ, the owner of the house he drove into doesn’t plan on taking any legal action, so maybe Pete threw a bandaid on the incident in the shape of a fat check to keep him out of the line of fire.

We spoke to the homeowner of the property Pete hit who told us his 16-year-old daughter was “a bit” traumatized after the close call. He did mention he’s got no beef with Pete, though — and had no intention to slap a lawsuit on the comedian.

A spokesperson for the DA’s office tells us, “Luckily, no one was seriously injured as a result of this collision. We know that reckless driving can have devastating consequences. In 2022, traffic fatalities in Los Angeles have reached the highest levels seen in 20 years. This is an alarming trend that we cannot ignore. As a result, it’s crucial that we take all allegations of reckless driving seriously and hold those responsible accountable.”

He’ll probably come out of this with minimal punishment if he can just manage to get through his hearing without telling the judge to “suck my dick.”
