NEWPORT BEACH, Calif (February 6, 2007) ? Daniel Baldwin has been branded a fugitive.A Judge in Orange County California has just issued a warrant for the former “Celebrity Fit Club” star after he failed to appear in a court room to answer a charge of auto theft.Authorities arrested Baldwin for allegedly stealing a GMC Yukon SUV on November 7 of last year. The vehicle reportedly belonged to a friend of the actor, but is believed to have been taken without permission
“The car belongs to an acquaintance of Mr. Baldwin, but he had no permission to take it,” Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Orange County sheriff’s department said at the time.
The 46-year-old actor made news in July when he drove a rented car at more than 80 mph through Los Angeles traffic and crashed into two parked vehicles. In April, he was arrested for investigation of cocaine possession, although prosecutors declined to file felony charges. Baldwin, brother of actors Alec, Stephen and William, has appeared in the television series “Homicide: Life on the Street” and the movie “Car 54, Where Are You?”
