Hollywood superstar Alec Baldwin is not calming down – and probably will not be for a long time. Not only does he never get the terrible images of Halyna Hutchins out of his head when Halyna Hutchins suddenly collapsed behind the camera on the film set in Santa Fee, New Mexico and screamed that she could no longer feel her legs, but now there are also legal consequences. According to several legal experts, there should also be criminal charges against Baldwin. The reasons: Baldwin would have been ultimately responsible as the producer of the cheap western “Rust”, which has now been set for good. And the film and TV star (“30 Rock”) fired the deadly bullet – without even checking the ammunition with which the weapon was loaded. “I expect an indictment by the responsible public prosecutor,” quotes the German “Bild” quoted New York star lawyer Edward Hayes. And celebrity lawyer Joseph Costa also believes charges of negligent homicide are quite conceivable. “As a producer you are in a responsible and liable position – prosecution is possible,” he says: “It is the equivalent of drink-driving, that is, someone may not intend to cause great damage, but he does!”
In the meantime, new details of the police investigation have also come to light. According to this, Baldwin would have practiced sitting on the film set in a church how best to pull his pistol across his body in cowboy fashion and then aim at the camera – and thus also at cameraman Halyna Hutchins. It is still unclear whether Baldwin pulled the trigger in good faith that he was holding a “cold gun”, ie an unloaded weapon, or whether the shot was accidentally released. According to eyewitness accounts, Hutchins collapsed shortly afterwards and screamed that she could no longer feel her legs.
While the police are still investigating, the severely scarred Hollwood star met Halyna Hutchin’s husband Matthew, 38, and son Andros, 9, at a Santa Fe hotel over the weekend. In the British “Sun”, Andro’s grandfather, Anatoly Androsovych (66), tells about the heavy loss of his daughter. “Andros is totally lost without his mom. He was incredibly close to his mom. He just fell silent after being told about her death and didn’t say a word for two days. “
And further: “This tragedy destroyed a wonderful family. Everyone who knows her is full of deep sorrow. “
