    According to Indiana State Police, Manuel Orrego-Savala, the man suspected of killing Colts player Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe, is a twice-deported illegal immigrant from Guatemala. Police say that Orrego-Savala was driving drunk when he caused the fatal accident on Sunday morning. Earlier today, local news station CBS 4 provided details of the circumstances of the deadly incident: Police believe Monroe was working as an Uber driver and Jackson was his passenger. At some point Jackson became sick, so Monroe pulled over on the side of I-70 just west of Holt Road shortly before 4 a.m. They were...

    Rhyan Moody, a 14-year-old high school freshman from Colleyville, Texas, was killed when an illegal alien, apparently intoxicated, allegedly smashed an SUV into the car she was traveling in with her grandparents on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 23. Moody was in the back seat and died from blunt force trauma to her head. Her grandparents suffered numerous broken bones and are recovering. Needless to say, if the illegal alien had not been in this country, Moody would be alive today. Jose Victor Chaparro-Saenz, 38, was arrested in his vehicle not far from the accident. Alcohol was found in the vehicle and...

Polk County Sheriff’s officials said in a news release that someone called 911 about a woman, who appeared confused and possibly in danger. When deputies arrived they found Donna Byrne riding her horse in the road. Officers did a sobriety test and said she gave breath samples that registered blood alcohol level of .161 — much higher than Florida’s legal limit of .08.

    By all accounts David Kriehn, of Noblesville, Indiana was a good person.

On Feb. 12th Mr. Kriehn was driving home from work in the wee hours of the...

    New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio told CNN's Jake Tapper that it is OK to shield undocumented immigrants who drive drunk from federal authorities if it does not "lead to any other negative outcome." Tapper asked the Democratic mayor on Sunday's "State of the Union" if he would comply with federal authorities following President Trump's executive order to halt funding to cities that do not cooperate with immigration officials by presenting a specific scenario. "Jake, there are 170 offenses in that law that are listed as serious and violent crimes that lead to automatic cooperation between the city of New...

    A recovering alcoholic says she knew she wasn’t drunk when she collided with a parked vehicle in late 2015. Sober for most of a decade, her beverage of choice had become orange juice, which she imbibed with gusto during late nights at the office. The Midwestern attorney -- who asked to be called Sara to protect her career -- sometimes would skip a meal as she consumed up to a gallon of juice a day. And for about a year before the accident, she recalls feeling odd and that something was medically wrong. When Sara blew just over .10 on...

    It’s the little things that make life special, but it may also be the little things that let you know when you’ve truly developed a problem. If you happen to live in the greater Oakland, California area, this story is the sort of indicator which just might let you know it’s time to leave. We’ve seen too many stories of political correctness infecting the government to count here, and occasionally it washes over into the field of law enforcement, but this one is simply staggering. The Oakland PD had scheduled a series of sobriety checkpoints around the city for Cinco...

    A Chicago-area driver, whom police suspect was drunk (you’ll never guess HOW), crashed into a tree and wedged it into her engine bay. But instead of stopping like a normal human being might have, the trunk driver inexplicably just kept on going. The Roselle Police Department posted two pictures on its Facebook page depicting a car with a 15-foot tree sticking out of its grille. The car had been driving in suburban Chicago late at night on the 23rd of January when another driver spotted it and called the cops. An officer did eventually spot the car, possibly from a...

    CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Four lawyers. Two shock jocks. One flirtatious paralegal. A Florida judge will soon decide if three well-known Tampa attorneys tricked a rival lawyer into getting a DUI in an attempt to derail opposing counsel on a defamation case. The ethics trial began this week and it has riveted Tampa's legal community with its salacious details of scheming and flirtation, of prior drunk driving arrests and extramarital affairs. On one side is the Florida Bar, which supports the version of events told by lawyer Phil Campbell. He was charged with DUI two years ago. The Bar alleges...

    A drug abuse counselor who drove drunk and struck a pedestrian — then drove around with the dying man on her windshield — bawled her eyes out in court as she was sentenced to 55 years to life in prison on Thursday. A teary-eyed Sherri Lynn Wilkins, 53, was convicted of second-degree murder, drunken driving and a hit-and-run — after killing Phillip Moreno in an LA suburb in 2012. After plowing into him, Wilkins drove for two miles with Moreno on her windshield, until other motorists swarmed her car at a traffic light and called the cops, prosecutors said. Her...

    WORCESTER – A judge will decide on Monday whether Nicolas Dutan Guaman is guilty of murder after testimony concluded regarding the crash that killed Milford resident Matthew Denice. Judge David Ricciardone heard closing statements Thursday from the prosecutor, who argued Guaman was drunk and tried to flee following the August 2011 accident, and the defense attorney, who said his client had no idea he was dragging Denice and couldn't understand the witnesses who were screaming at him to stop. “This was an unbelievable perfect storm of circumstances,” defense attorney Peter Ettenberg said in Worcester Superior Court. “This was a chaotic,...
