CARUSO WON'T COP A PLEA TO AVOID GOING TO EMMYS

Emmy nominee David Caruso won't let his planned exit from "NYPD Blue" keep him from the awards ceremony Sunday.

He has decided to attend the 46th annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Pasadena, said publicist Stan Rosenfield.Caruso said earlier he might avoid the ceremony because of the hoopla over his decision to leave the ABC police drama this season.

"I wish to honor my `NYPD Blue' character, John Kelly," Caruso said in a statement Wednesday.

Caruso's nomination as outstanding lead actor in a drama is one of a record 26 Emmy bids garnered by "NYPD Blue."
