Comedian Pete Davidson is now facing a reckless driving charge in connection with a car accident that occurred earlier this year, resulting in damage to a residence in Beverly Hills, Your Content has learned.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office officially filed one count of reckless driving against the former ‘SNL’ cast member on Friday, approximately three months after the incident took place.
According to law enforcement sources, Pete Davidson and his girlfriend, Chase Sui Wonders, were involved in the crash on March 4 around 11 PM.
Davidson was allegedly driving at a high speed through a residential street when he lost control of his Mercedes and collided with the side of a house.
The exact cause of the accident remains unclear, although sources indicate that Davidson veered off the road, striking a fire hydrant before crashing into the property.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the incident, and neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to have played a role.
Consequently, Davidson was not taken into custody at the time.
The homeowner of the affected property expressed that his 16-year-old daughter experienced some emotional distress following the close call.
However, he conveyed that he does not hold any ill feelings towards Pete Davidson and has no intention of pursuing legal action against the comedian.
If convicted of reckless driving, Davidson could face a potential sentence of up to 90 days in jail, a $1,000 fine, and the suspension of his driver’s license, according TMZ.
