Reckless Driving:  In late January, 2017, Yordano Ventura, age 25, was killed in a motor vehicle accident while visiting his home in the Dominican Republic.  According to Dominican police, Ventura‘s one car accident occured on the Juan Adrián highway near San Jose de Ocoa. Ventura was alone in the vehicle.  The cause of the collision was not reported.

Reckless Driving: Ventura was known for his lightening like fast ball and his fearlessness against much larger players from other professional baseball teams.  Ventura was an essential element of the pennant victories for his Kansas City Royals and the 2015 World Series.  Two years earlier, Oscar Taveras, another rising young baseball star, was killed in a traffic crash in the DR.  Taveras and his girlfriend were killed near Puerto Plata.  Ventura was pitching in the 2014 World Series and had Taveras‘ initials and number on his baseball cap honoring Taveras.  Coincidentally Andy Marte a retired major league baseball player also died in a vehicle crash in the DR several days earlier than Ventura’s passing.

Reckless Driving: Ventura’s tough attitude often drew unwelcome attention from batters.  On one occasion, Manny Machado charged the pitcher’s mound; on another Mike Trout engaged Ventura in a tense stare down.  Ventura earned over one million dollars in his second season of a five year contract with a twenty-three million dollar guarantee.  Ventura came a long way from a 16 year old signed for $28,000.00 as a project.

Victor Ortiz’s DUI

If you have been charged with reckless driving in Harrisonburg, Virginia call Bob Keefer’s office right now to schedule a FREE CASE EVALUATION.  Bob has over 30 years experience in representing people charged with traffic crimes in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  He can be reached at info@BobKeefer.com or at 540.433.6906 or at the link above.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Victor Ortiz is a professional boxer and an actor.  Ortiz was the WBC Welterweight Champion in 2011 and was consistently rated in the top three fighters at his weight for much of his career.  Ortiz acted in The Expendables and in Southpaw.  He also appeared on Dancing With the Stars.  Ortiz grew up in Kansas to Mexican parents.  For a time, Ortiz was raised by his single parent Father who suffered from alcoholism.  Eventually, Ortiz and his five brothers and sisters entered into the care of Kansas child protective services.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer: Before his father left, Ortiz took up boxing and showed great promise.  Ortiz was noticed by Ron Lyle at a Salvation Army Community Center.  Lyle mentored Ortiz into Junior Olympics where he was undefeated.  Lyle was then noticed by Roberto Garcia who began training Ortiz.  At 17 years of age, Ortiz entered the United States Olympic boxing trials but was eliminated in the semifinals.  In 2004, Ortiz entered the professional boxing circuit.  During his career, Ortiz fought many great boxers including Floyd Mayweather.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyer:  In 2016 Ortiz was arrested for DUI in Ventura County, California.  He breath test registered 0.21 grams per 210 Liters of breath.  That breath alcohol content qualified Ortiz for the super DUI designation which carries greater penalties than a standard first DUI.  The DUI may not be Ortiz’s worst legal problem since he was on probation for a 2015 assault and battery charge at the Kenny Chesney concert held at the Rose Bowl.  Ortiz should be worried about the “comeback” time from the 2015 charge.

Son of Arkansas Governor Arrested For DWI

Marshall Coach Duhon Charged with DWI

Son of Arkansas Governor Arrested For DWI

Son of Arkansas Governor Arrested For DWI:  William Asa Hutchinson, III is the 40 year old son of Asa Hutchinson, the Governor of Arkansas.  On January 24, 2016, Hutchinson III was involved in a single motor vehicle crash.  According to Arkansas State Police, he reported falling asleep while driving at 4:00 a.m.  At some point,  Hutchinson III’s vehicle slammed into the guardrail at the Interstate 49 southbound exit ramp onto the Fulbright Expressway.  Police reported that Hutchinson III was confused about his direction of travel prior to the motor vehicle accident.  Police did not report how they determined that Hutchinson III’s confusion was due to a concussion received in the high speed crash to the guardrail.  #SonOfArkansasGovernorArrestedForDWI

Son of Arkansas Governor Arrested For DWI:  The state police indicated that a firefighter summonsed to the crash site reported smelling an alcoholic beverage odor in Hutchinson III’s vehicle.  The state police then noticed such odor on Hutchinson’s breath while speaking with him.  The police report indicates that Hutchinson’s eyes were blood shot and watery and he had slurred speech.  The Police did not indicate how they determined that watery eyes were caused by a blood alcohol level over the legal limit.  The police did not explain how they determined that the blood shot eyes were not the product of the late hour, allergies or some other environmental factor.

Son of Arkansas Governor Arrested For DWI:  The police apparently attempted to administer the horizontal gaze nystagmus test to Hutchinson III.  The HGN test is hard to administer properly and there is significant evidence that HGN clues are often present in persons with no Blood Alcohol content and well as persons with low Blood Alcohol Contents.  Hutchinson III was charged with DWI, careless driving and refusal to undergo the evidential breath test.  His court date in the Fayetteville District Court is set for February 22, 2016. #SonOfArkansasGovernorArrestedForDWI

Ohio State J.T. Barrett charged with DUI:  In late October, J.T. Barrett was charged with Ohio’s version of DWI called OWI.  Barrett was stopped by police when he attempted to avoid a roadblock that police had set up to catch Ohio State students returning to campus.  These roadblocks have very specific requirements in notice, signage and how they treat persons stopped by the roadblock.  The reason for this specificity is that roadblocks are not consistent with the 4th Amendment.

Ohio State J.T. Barrett charged with DUI:  Barrett picked a poor time to drink and drive as he is 20 years old and cannot legally drink in the United States.  The drinking age was manipulated by the Federal Government with legislation cutting off highway funding to states who did not adopt the 21 year drinking age.  Barrett apparently did not know that he could refuse to talk to the police by politely stating “I want a Lawyer.  If I am not under arrest, please let me know.”  Barrett also did not realize that he could legally refuse the preliminary breath test device given at roadside.  Barrett also failed to realize that he could decline to perform the roadside gymnastics that are designed to generate probable cause to arrest.

Ohio State J.T. Barrett charged with DUI: Urban Meyers picked Barrett to be starting quarterback in the last game against RutgersBarrett had an outstanding game with three touchdowns.  Because of his arrest, Barrett has been suspended for one game.  He will be eligible thereafter if Coach Meyers chooses to call upon him.

Toronto Mayor Ford Avoids DWI: Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is in the news again as part of Mark Towhey’s tell all book.  Towhey was Ford’s Chief of Staff.  Mayor Rob Ford: Uncontrollable — How I Tried to Help the World’s Most Notorious Mayor will be available to the general public around the end of October, 2015.  In the book we learn that Toronto police often stopped Mayor Ford for drunk driving and then simply gave him a ride home.  We also learn that Towhey started an office policy that no one was to ride with Mayor Ford when Ford was driving.  This policy came on the heels of a staffer’s report that while riding with Ford, Ford downed an entire 12 ounce bottle of vodka in one gulp.  The staffer wisely exited the vehicle and found other, safer transportation.  Towhey admits that he did not inform Toronto police of the Mayor’s drunk driving.  Towhey defends that decision by noting that Toronto Police already knew about Ford’s serial drunk driving and took no steps to arrest Ford.

Toronto Mayor Ford Avoids DWI: It appears that the Toronto police deny giving Mayor Ford special treatment as he drove drunk almost every day through Toronto streets.  Mayor Ford consistently denied claims of his substance abuse until videos were discovered documenting such drug and alcohol abuse.  Ford then entered rehab toward the end of his four year stint as Mayor.  As Towhey notes the work of the staffers ceased being about doing the work of Toronto government and all about keeping Ford alive. #TorontoMayorFordAvoidsDWI

Seahawk Derrick Coleman Arrested for reckless driving

Seahawk Derrick Coleman Arrested for reckless driving

Seahawk Derrick Coleman Arrested for reckless driving

Seahawk Derrick Coleman Arrested for reckless driving: Derrick Lamont Coleman is 25 years old and plays fullback for the NFL Seattle Seahawks.  Coleman entered the league in 2012 as as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings.  Coleman played his college ball at UCLA.  Coleman, who lost his hearing at age three,  is also the first deaf offensive player in the National Football League.

Seahawk Derrick Coleman Arrested for reckless driving: After being released by Minnesota, Coleman was signed by the Seattle Seahawks. Coleman played well for Seattle and was part of the Super Bowl XLVIII winning team.  On October 15, 2015 Coleman was suspended by the Seahawks for his involvement in an alleged hit and run.  According to Washington State law enforcement Coleman was involved in a potential reckless driving accident and then walked or ran away from the crash site.  Since there were serious injuries to persons involved, Coleman is facing a possible felony hit and run charge.  It has been suggested that Coleman fell asleep at the wheel.  Coleman denies that drugs or alcohol played any part in his collision. One suggestion that has not been made is that Coleman may have suffered a concussion in the collision.  Since Coleman is a football player he has certainly suffered concussions before.  The recent discovery of CTE in football players makes it very likely that any concussion would have a serious effect on Coleman’s ability to rationally deal with the aftermath of a motor vehicle crash.

Seahawk Derrick Coleman Arrested for reckless driving:  In January of 2014 Coleman starred in a Duracell commercial that well received.  That commercial inspired deaf twins Riley and Erin Kovalcik to write Coleman.  Coleman eventually invited the Kovalcik family to attend the Super Bowl on February 2, 2014.  Coleman is not only deaf; he is also a Christian.  Coleman has been quoted as saying “I always say that God blessed me this morning and I can do what I do.”  #SeahawkDerrickColemanArrestedforrecklessdriving
