COPPING A NEW ATTITUDE
David Caruso has had nearly a decade to think about his controversial exit from NYPD Blue, and he now confesses that, well, he did a bad, bad thing. "It's been an interesting nine years... I don't think I could have helped but grow up quite a bit," he told reporters today at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., where he was out promoting his role in CBS's fall spinoff series CSI: Miami. "While we all understand that I mishandled the NYPD Blue situation quite handily, I've had a number of opportunities... to grow up and realize what has been provided for me, and it's been a very interesting and very powerful ride. It's been great for me." Tell it to Steven Bochco, buddy.
