Pete Davidson was charged with reckless driving following his crashing into a home in June. Although no one was harmed, the situation would have been a lot worse.
He was then charged to court and the verdict is here. It has now been stated that the star must complete 50 hours of community service and 12 hours of traffic school to avoid getting a criminal offence on his record.
Reckless driving is one of the highest causes of death all over the world, with several people losing their lives over a willful act of another person celebrity or not. And that’s what Davidson did.
Offenders must be brought to book with harsh punishments to curtail such acts again. Especially if there was a loss of life involved. But in the case of Kim Kardashians’s ex, fortunately, no life was lost.
Peter Davidson was charged with reckless driving in June after he crashed his Mercedes into a home in Beverly Hills in March. Afterwards, he was charged to court.
Per TMZ report, the celeb entered a diversion program last week and that is why he was able to avoid entering a guilty or no-contest plea. He was then mandated to do community service and go to traffic school.
Davidson must also finish these programs within the next 18 months to avoid getting a criminal record for reckless driving. Another part of his sentence includes a morgue visit to get acquainted with what happens to the victims of reckless drivers.
If he meets all the stipulations, then he can void getting a criminal record. Several fans believe that the sentence was not strict enough after all, it is a matter of life and death.
But on second thought, we believe the comedian is deeply sorry and regrets his reckless driving. Besides Davidson did not harm anyone except for the building.
The story was that the comedian was driving the vehicle with his girlfriend Chase Sui through the Flats neighbourhood of Beverley Hills on Saturday, March 4 around 11 pm at ‘high speed’ when he lost control of the car.
The Mercedes jumped the curb and hit a fire hydrant before it crashed into the side of a nearby house, law enforcement said.
Pictures revealed that the house was demolished. Police also said that Pete Davidson was not under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
Perhaps that’s why he got a lesser sentence. Also, no one was injured either inside or outside of the home, but the police were called to the scene and investigation has been ongoing.
Still, reckless driving is a serious offence and puts the life of both car occupants and the general public in danger. Do you think the law was lenient on Pete? If so what do you think should have been the appropriate punishment?
