Daniel Baldwin has been a naughty boy. He was supposed to show up to court this morning at 10:00AM for a hearing but didn't show up because he's in Toronto shooting a movie.

Baldwin wasn't even supposed to leave the country without getting it cleared through the court first, so the judge revoked his probation.

Baldwin's probation officer also snitched on the actor revealing that he missed an appointment on December 5 and several AA meetings. I say throw the book at him, these celebs need to understand that they're not above the law. Daniel Baldwin
