A misdemeanor child endangerment charge was dismissed Thursday against an actor from the TV show “Ray Donovan,” who crashed his Chrysler sedan into a parked car while driving with his young son on his lap.

Marion “Pooch” Henry Hall was sentenced in March 2019 to three years probation, four days in jail and ordered to complete a three-month residential alcohol treatment program in connection with his plea to the child endangerment charge — along with a misdemeanor DUI charge — stemming from the Oct. 3, 2018, crash. His driver’s license was also suspended for six months.

The child endangerment charge was dismissed after Hall finished parenting classes.

Hall — who portrays the half-brother of Live Schreiber’s character on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” — was taken into custody in the 200 block of North Buena Vista Street in Burbank. He was released the next morning on $100,000 bond.

“When police officers arrived, witnesses reported seeing a man driving a Chrysler 300 sedan weaving in and out of traffic with a small child seated on his lap,” Burbank police Sgt. Derek Green said shortly after Hall’s arrest. “One witness reported seeing the child’s hands on the steering wheel. This driver ultimately collided with a parked vehicle and was detained at the scene on suspicion of driving under the influence.”

Hall “displayed obvious signs of alcohol intoxication and was unable to perform standardized field sobriety tests,” Green said then. “Mr Hall’s 2- year-old son … was determined to have been riding in the vehicle unrestrained, as required by law.”

No one was reported injured, Green said, and the boy was released to the custody of Hall’s wife at the crash scene.
