Pete Davidson, the 29-year-old comedian, is taking responsibility for his actions following a car crash in Beverly Hills four months ago. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has confirmed that Davidson has enrolled in an 18-month diversion program after being charged with reckless driving in June.
As part of this program, Davidson has agreed to fulfill specific requirements. He must complete 50 hours of community service, and he has chosen to carry out this service at the New York City Fire Department. This decision holds special significance as his late father, Scott, served as a firefighter at the department and tragically lost his life during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Alongside the community service commitment, Davidson is obligated to complete 12 hours of traffic school and participate in educational sessions at a morgue or hospital. Additionally, he is required to pay restitution and adhere to all laws, as specified by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The New York City Fire Department has expressed their willingness to welcome Davidson with open arms, extending him an opportunity to fulfill his community service duties with them.
“As the son of a 9/11 hero, we would be happy to provide Mr. Davidson an opportunity to do his required community service,” the statement read.
The car crash incident occurred on March 4 in Beverly Hills, where Davidson collided with a fire hydrant. Actress Chase Sui Wonders, his girlfriend at the time, was with him during the accident.
