Troubled Baldwin Brother Sought By LA Court

By KJ Mullins     Dec 9, 2007 in Entertainment
Daniel Baldwin of the Baldwin brothers clan is being sought by the Los Angeles Superior Court. Baldwin's arrest warrant was signed by Judge Scott Millington on Friday when he failed to show up for a scheduled progress report in court.
Baldwin is on probation for possessing cocaine and drug paraphernalia. He was arrested in April 2006 in a Los Angeles when he was caught in a motel with the drug and paraphernalia. Baldwin tried to have the charges dropped by entering a drug rehabilitation program. In February he had a progress report hearing where his lawyer said the actor had completed various programs and was continuing treatment. When Baldwin didn't show up for his hearing Friday morning the judge issued the arrest warrant.
Baldwin has admitted in the past that he is addicted to cocaine.
In an interview with "Primetime," Daniel said, "I'm a straight-up cocaine addict. I don't really drink very much, although I have abused alcohol in the past. And I don't use any other drugs. I don't take pills. I don't do anything. I'm a … diehard coke head."
The actor has appeared in more than 70 movies. For four years he played the character Beau Felton on "Homicide: Life on the Street."
With the acting career came the cocaine addiction.
Daniel said they were smoking crack. "I kid you not, from the first time that I had smoked a hit of cocaine, I was in rehab six months later," he said. "It, it grabbed me so firmly and I was so out of control with it immediately."
His addiction has caused problems in his personal life. His oldest daughter doesn't speak to the man. Four years ago Kahlea visiting her father on the set in Toronto she picked up a crack pipe. She packed her bags and left. Her mother Cheryl was Baldwin's high school sweetheart and first wife.
Second wife Elizabeth now lives in London with 13-year-old daughter Alexandra. That daughter also has no contact with her father.
He had a relationship with actress Isabella Hoffman that resulted in his son Atticus.
"It cost me a lot," he said. "My little son, Atticus, desperately needs his dad and I haven't been there for him…and that's sad."
Baldwin is thought to be in Toronto filming a movie. That in itself is a problem. The actor has to have permission from the court to be out of the country and it is reported that he never obtained that permission.
Daniel admits that he will always be an addict. "The addict will always be there, forever. I am an addict. That's just the way it is."
