An actor who got in hot water for his use of a prop pellet gun while he played a bit part in an indie gangster movie apparently will avoid serving a prison term.
The AP reports that Carlo Goias, who goes by the stage name Carlo Bellario, was charged under New Jersey’s strict gun statute after using an airsoft gun during filming of a car chase for “Vendetta Games.”
“The Toms River resident was sentenced Monday to two years of probation. He had accepted a plea deal offer in July,” the AP reports. “Bellario initially said he’d reject the deal as a matter of principle. He relented after his attorney told him he could face up to 30 years due to prior felony convictions.”
