‘Ray Donovan’ Star Pooch Hall Faces 6-Year Prison Stint For DUI & Child Abuse


The sixth season of Ray Donovan starts Sunday, but star Pooch Hall could find himself behind bars for up to six years for driving under the influence with his 2-year-old son in the car.

The incident in Burbank on the evening October 3 saw the actor who plays Daryll Donovan on the Showtime drama crash his Chrysler 300 sedan into a parked car. The Game alum was behind the wheel with his son on his lap and not wearing a seat belt. Hall was arrested and booked by Burbank PD for child endangerment and DUI.

The Ray Donovan regular was released later on $100,000 bond. Hall’s wife took their unharmed child home from the crash scene.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office announced that Marion Henry Hall (his real name) will be arraigned Friday and faces one felony count of child abuse. He also is charged with “one misdemeanor count each of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and driving with a .08 percent blood alcohol content,” Jackie Lacey’s team said Tuesday afternoon.

Put together, those charges could see Hall sent to state prison for up to six years if he is found guilty. The D.A. is asking the Los Angeles Superior Court to set bail at $100,000.

At the time of the arrest, we heard that Hall’s situation would not disrupt filming on the now-NYC-based Ray Donovan. Production has wrapped on Season 6, the show’s first one filmed in New York. It is expected to be renewed for another season, but there is no word yet on Hall’s future as a member of the Donovan brood.

Showtime had no comment today on the charges or their ramifications for the actor, who has been with the show since its inception.
