Mark Wahlberg Wants To Pardon His 1988 Assault Conviction In Order To Shoot Guns?!

mark wahlberg reserve cop pardon

Mark Wahlberg has portrayed a cop in several of his blockbuster hits. But has his research influenced him to become one in real life?!

In a situation where art imitates life, the Boston actor apparently wants to pardon his 1988 assault conviction — where he physically attacked two men and allegedly voiced racial slurs at them — in order to become a reserve officer.

The only problem is that becoming a reservist would require him to possibly use a firearm and convicted felons are, reasonably so, not allowed to handle dangerous weapons.

In his application to the Massachusetts Parole Board, the 43-year-old has admitted wrongdoing:

"Rather than ignore or deny my troubled past, I have used the public spotlight to speak openly about the mistakes I made as a teenager so that others do not make those same mistakes."

If the Oscar-nominated actor does become a cop, he wouldn't be the first celeb to do so. Shaquille O'Neal and Jack Osbourne are reserve cops in Miami and Muncie, Indiana respectively.

In the meantime, Wahlberg's dreams of shooting guns will stay strictly on the set of a movie.

    No! He should be held accountable for his past just like anyone else - ask the Vietnamese kid that lost his eye in this attack if Wahlberg deserves special consideration and whitewashing of his hate crime.

    I know he was a youth during this crime but he has the record for a reason. That's his punishment what he deserves. To take that aways is a slap in the face to his victims. With his record he'll always remember what he did and will motivate him to make better life decisions.

    Facing it shows maturity. I wonder if he's made reparations with the fellow who lost an eye.

    You don't want to be a police officer in this day and age. My cousin is a police officer with the LA County Sheriffs and has one more year untll retirement.
