Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the weapons supervisor involved in the tragic shooting incident on the film set where actor Alec Baldwin accidentally killed a cinematographer, now faces an additional charge of evidence tampering. The latest accusation, as reported by The New York Times, alleges Gutierrez-Reed’s involvement in the transfer of narcotics to another individual on the same day the fatal shooting took place. Despite the mounting charges, Gutierrez-Reed’s attorneys have announced her intention to plead not guilty to both the evidence tampering and involuntary manslaughter charges.

Prosecutors, however, argue that Gutierrez-Reed has a history of reckless conduct and assert that it is in the public’s interest for her to be held accountable for her actions. The defense, on the other hand, accuses the prosecution of mishandling the case and resorting to character assassination tactics. This legal battle is intensifying, with the tragic incident sparking widespread discussions about safety measures on film sets and the responsibilities of those involved in such productions.
