Posted Monday October 1, 2012 3:30 PM GMT

Given the chance to wipe his slate clean, Stephen Baldwin pled guilty to driving without a license on Monday (October 1) after a recent run-in with the law.

Wheeling a suitcase behind him, the "Bio-Dome" actor looked casual in a dark tee-shirt and a San Jose Fire Department baseball cap for his Manhattan Criminal Court appearance around 9:30a.m.

After making an illegal U-turn to grab coffee at a nearby Starbucks, Stephen was pulled over on August 24th on W. 125th St., near Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. in Harlem as he drove his 15-year-old daughter home from ballet class.

While waiting in line to pay $155 in fines and charges, Baldwin called the incident a "blessing in disguise" saying, "I was able to explain to my daughter, who was very upset, that the NYPD usually deal with bad people. I have nothing but respect for the men and women in uniform and I got to share that with her."
