Pete Davidson charged with reckless driving after allegedly crashing vehicle into Beverly Hills home

Comedian Pete Davidson has been charged with crashing a vehicle into a Beverly Hills home earlier this year. 

The “Saturday Night Live” alum was charged Friday with a misdemeanor count of reckless driving, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office told Fox News Digital.

“We believe that Mr. Davidson engaged in reckless driving, which ultimately resulted in his involvement in a serious collision into a home. Luckily, no one was seriously injured as a result of this collision,” the DA’s office said in an emailed statement.

The crash happened March 4 just after 11 p.m. Officers responded to calls of a traffic accident at the intersection of Rodeo Drive and Elevado Avenue. 

“Preliminary investigators believe speed may have been a factor,” Lt. Reginald Evans told Fox News Digital at the time, adding that no arrests were made.

At the time, Evans told Fox News Digital that officers did not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. 

Lt. Moreno added, “Nobody was injured. Nobody at the home and nobody in the car.”

Representatives for Davidson did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Davidson and Wonders have not publicly commented on the crash. The two met in 2021 when they co-starred in the 2022 movie “Bodies Bodies Bodies.” The “Generation” alum also played Davidson’s on-and-off girlfriend in the 2023 Peacock comedy series “Bupkis,” which is loosely based on the comedian’s life.

The pair first sparked romance rumors in December when they attended a New York Rangers game together along with fellow “Bodies Bodies Bodies” co-star Rachel Sennot.

In a report published by People magazine Friday, a source told the outlet Davidson and Wonders are “still going strong.”

“He really, really cares for her and thinks she’s just the best,” the insider said.

The source added that Davidson is “very happy” and the pair are “super close.”

Davidson was recently involved in a highly-publicized spat with the animal rights organization PETA. Last week, Davidson allegedly left an expletive-laced voicemail for Daphna Nachminovitch, the senior vice president of PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department, after Nachminovitch criticized him for buying a puppy instead of adopting. 

In the voicemail, Davidson explained that he can only adopt a specific breed of dog due to allergies. PETA later released a statement claiming there is “no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog,” adding that the breed purchased by Davidson was available at shelters and on the pet adoption website Petfinder.
