Mark Wahlberg Requests a Pardon for Beating a Man in 1988
Mark Wahlberg looks super muscular while getting into character for Daddy’s Home on Friday afternoon (December 5) in Boston, MA.
The 43-year-old actor was joined on set by his co-star Will Ferrell to film a few scenes.
Recently, it was revealed that Mark has filed a request with the Massachusetts Board of Pardons to be pardoned from various crimes — including the 1988 incident where he beat a man until he had injuries so bad that he lost vision in one eye.
“I am deeply sorry for the actions that I took… as well as for any lasting damage that I may have caused the citizens,” he wrote in his application that was obtained by ABC News. “Since that time, I have dedicated myself to becoming a better person and citizen so that I can be a role model to my children and others.”
Mark continued saying: “I have not engaged in philanthropic efforts in order to make people forget about my past. To the contrary, I want people to remember my past so that I can serve as an example of how lives can be turned around and how people can be redeemed.”
