Deposed NY ballet chief is done for drunk driving

Peter Martins, who left New York City Ballet amid a flurry of #MeToo allegations, has suffered the lighter discredit of being found guilty of two motoring charges: driving while ability impaired and backing unsafely.

He was fined $650.

    Mid life crisis. Was the vehicle perhaps a firehouse-red Lamborghini? (-:

      I’m guessing a Prius; a real male feminist chick magnet.

      Generous, but mid-life is generally considered 45-65. Mr. Martins has had major problems that are not funny in the least. It is sad to see them continue.

    A $650 fine for a second offense seems like getting off lightly.

      Indeed. I hope that he is getting treatment.
