Gene Shalit: Driving charge against retired critic to be dismissed
Question of the Day
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. (AP) — A misdemeanor driving charge against retired television movie critic Gene Shalit is set to be dismissed in Massachusetts.
The 86-year-old Mr. Shalit was cited in October after his vehicle struck a utility pole and came to rest against a house in Lenox, in western Massachusetts. Mr. Shalit, who lives in nearby Stockbridge, wasn’t hurt. He told police he fell asleep.
The agreement between police and Mr. Shalit‘s lawyer was approved during a probable cause hearing Wednesday in Southern Berkshire District Court. The hearing was continued to April 2, when the driving to endanger charge will be dismissed.
Mr. Shalit‘s lawyer told The Berkshire Eagle his client won’t drive until the next hearing, at which time his driving status will be re-assessed.
Mr. Shalit, known for his bushy hair and mustache, reviewed movies for NBC’s “Today” show from 1973 until 2010.
