Gene Shalit faces a charge of driving to endanger after the retired Today Show movie critic introduced his car to a utility pole before coming to a stop against a home.

OMG! reports the 86-year-old Shalit told Lennox, Massachusetts police that he fell asleep at the wheel. He was issued a summons to appear before a clerk magistrate in Southern Berkshire District Court in Great Barrington at a future date.

Shalit, who walked away from the incident unharmed, was with Today from 1973 until his retirement in 2000.
