Pooch Hall may need a real life Hollywood fixer.

The Ray Donovan actor was charged with one felony count of child abuse, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.

He is also charged with one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence.

The charges stem from an Oct. 3 traffic collision in Burbank, Calif. Police said the actor was driving around with his two-year-old son in his lap, when he crashed his Chrysler 300 sedan into a parked car.

Witnesses told officers they spotted a man weaving in and out of traffic with a small child seated in his lap. They also reported seeing the toddler’s hands on the steering wheel.

The actor, whose real name is Marion Henry Hall, was taken into custody at the scene and released the next day.
