"Bio-Dome" actor Stephen Baldwin pleaded guilty Monday to driving without a license in Harlem and paid $155 in fines and charges to wipe his slate clean.
The star was stopped at 5:15 p.m. on Aug. 24 on W. 125th St., near Adam Clayton Powell Blvd., after making an illegal U-turn, officials said.
He was driving his 15-year-old daughter, Hailey Rhode, home from ballet class at the time, and he called the experience a “blessing in disguise” because it gave him the chance to talk with her about how hard cops work.
"I was able to explain to my daughter, who was very upset, that the NYPD usually deal with bad people," Baldwin said Monday as he waited in line to pay a $75 fine and $80 surcharge.
"I have nothing but respect for the men and women in uniform and I got to share that with her."
He’d pulled the U-turn to grab coffee at a Starbucks, he said Monday.
Baldwin, the younger brother of "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin, said he was handcuffed and taken to the Harlem precinct stationhouse, where he was given a ticket for driving on a suspended license. On Monday, he pleaded guilty to driving without a license, a less-serious infraction.
