Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson was charged with “careless driving” in his Cadillac Escalade Wednesday night in Jersey, says the Smoking Gun. (Can anyone drive a Cadillac Escalade in a manner that’s other than careless, really? Barring long-term training in tank maneuvers? Anyway.) When the cops pulled the comedian over, they discovered that his passenger, Kyle Mosley, was harboring marijuana on his person, which is not only selfish, but also illegal. Mosley is facing possession and paraphernalia charges, but Thompson skated off with a tender slap on the wrist, leading us to considerably up our faith in his improv skills.
