Baldwin a court no-show again, but with prosecutor's OK

A prosecutor agreed Tuesday to postpone for one week a hearing for actor Daniel Baldwin, who faces felony charges for allegedly stealing his friend's car.

Baldwin's attorney, Grant Hoagland, asked for the postponement, said Farrah Emami, a spokeswoman for the Orange County district attorney. Baldwin had been expected in court Tuesday.

The 46-year-old brother of actors William, Stephen and Alec Baldwin is already named in a $25,000 (Ђ19,198) arrest warrant for failing to show up at a hearing in the same case last week. That warrant will stand until Baldwin reports to court, said Emami.

Hoagland did not immediately return a call for comment Tuesday. Baldwin's manager, Daniel Spilo, did not immediately return a phone message, reports AP.

Baldwin has been free on bail since he was arrested in November while driving a car that had been reported stolen. Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said at the time that the car belonged to Baldwin's friend, but he did not have permission to take it.

The actor was charged in December with two felony counts of unlawfully taking a car and receiving stolen property. He could face up to three years in prison if convicted, Emami said.

The second-eldest Baldwin brother has appeared in the television series "Homicide: Life on the Street" and the movie "Car 54, Where Are You?"
