WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Prosecutors today agreed to defer charges against WWAY News Director Scott Pickey until July. In the meantime Pickey will complete a driving class.
Pickey is charged with reckless driving to endanger and failure to obey a traffic officer. The charges stem from an incident during Wilmington’s MLK Day Parade in January, when Pickey drove a station vehicle out of WWAY’s parking lot because police would not allow a reporter to leave during the parade for a story.
While Pickey waits for his next court date July 2, he will take a defensive driving class suggested by prosecutors.
