Hedlund was also accused of trying to flee the scene of the crash without calling an ambulance.

The actor’s latest legal troubles come shortly after his split from Emma Roberts.

The celebrity duo – who have 13-month-old son Rhodes together – recently ended their nearly three-year romance after a rocky few months in their relationship.

A source said: “It’s sad, and they’re doing their best to co-parent. It’s been hard.”

The couple started dating in March 2019 and welcomed Rhodes in December 2020.

A friend of the duo previously praised the actor for “stepping it up” after Emma gave birth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The insider explained, “Having a newborn in the pandemic has been a lot harder than expected, but they’re really, really trying their best to figure things out.

“Garrett stepped it all up after Emma was still recovering from giving birth. He made sure their home was filled with things Emma loved and needed to make her feel comfortable. She just starting to get back to a more ‘normal’ routine.”
