Alec Baldwin, an actor and producer, is not the only well-known person accused of being involved in a terrible death.
Prosecutors in Santa Fe, New Mexico will accuse Baldwin and a film armorer with two counts of involuntary manslaughter each for the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie “Rust” in 2021.
Baldwin was holding a prop gun when Hutchins was hit and killed by a live bullet as they were acting out a scenario for the production.
According to Baldwin’s lawyer, Luke Nikas, who has promised to fight the accusations, the decision by the New Mexico prosecutors was “a horrific miscarriage of justice.” Baldwin has stated he was unaware the gun he discharged had a live ammunition.
Hannah Gutierrez Reed, the armorer in the movie, is represented by Jason Bowles, who claims that a jury will find his client not guilty since she “has committed no crime.”
There are other famous people who have had comparable legal issues:
Following the 1984 murder of his friend and passenger Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley, drummer for the Finnish band Hanoi Rocks, in a drunk driving accident, Mötley Crüe’s lead singer was charged with vehicular manslaughter and DUI.
Neil entered a guilty plea to the charges, was given a $2.5 million restitution order, and was only imprisoned for a short period of time.
In 1987, while traveling in Northern Ireland with his then-girlfriend and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” co-star Jennifer Grey, Broderick’s car was involved in a collision with another vehicle.
Anne Gallagher, 28, and Margaret Doherty, 63, were in the car, and both of them passed away from their wounds.
The New York Post said that Broderick, who was critically hurt in the collision and rendered unconscious, was facing a five-year prison sentence for reckless driving. He was found guilty of reckless driving and given a $175 fine.
In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” last spring, Grey said, “The automobile accident in Ireland was, I would say, top three tragedies of my life, maybe top one.”
When you have a near-death experience and witness other people’s deaths, she said, “it’s really difficult to convey.” “It was very unnerving to be all by myself on a country road in the middle of nowhere with nobody else nearby or conscious… It sparked a lot of other developments in my life.
Grey continued, “It was an accident.” And nobody was drinking, and [Broderick] was a wonderful driver. It was merely a coincidence. It was tragic, too.
Jorge Cruz Jr., 9, was struck and killed by the “Beverly Hills, 90210” actress in Los Angeles in 2001 after she swerved to avoid a car that had stopped.
“The Only One in the Room,” a podcast hosted by Laura Cathcart Robbins, featured Gayheart in 2019. Gayheart admitted, “I really didn’t want to live after that accident.”
I spent about a year just trying to kill myself because I couldn’t manage it at all, she claimed. “Basically by doing everything a person can do to destroy themselves because I just didn’t comprehend any of it,”
According to E!, Gayheart entered a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of vehicular manslaughter and received probation, a one-year license suspension, a $2,800 fine, and 750 hours of community service as part of her punishment.
After striking attorney Fred Seeman and his wife Helene Seeman as they were entering into the driveway of their Montgomery, New Jersey home in 2010, the actress was found guilty of vehicular murder for a drunk driving accident.
From her wounds, Helene Seeman passed away.
In May 2022, a New Jersey state appellate court upheld Locane’s eight-year jail term. She is most recognized for her work on the TV show “Melrose Place” and the movie “Cry Baby.”
MyCentralJersey.com reported that Locane will be eligible for release on December 20, 2024.
