Stephen Baldwin: Resolves NYC driving case
NEW YORK -- Stephen Baldwin has untangled a traffic case that got him arrested as he was trying to get coffee in New York City this summer.
The "Usual Suspects" actor was in a Manhattan court Monday to plead guilty to unlicensed driving. It’s a traffic infraction, not a crime. He’ll have to pay a $75 fine.
He declined to comment afterward.
His lawyer, Richard Southard, said the case stemmed from a misunderstanding about Baldwin’s license, and it’s been cleared up.
Baldwin was arrested in August on a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license.
He told the Daily News then that he was pulled over while heading for a Harlem Starbucks with his daughter and didn’t realize his license was suspended.
The 46-year-old is the youngest of acting’s Baldwin brothers.
