Late last week, the founder of the International Polo Club was found guilty in a fatal drunk-driving crash. A local news report explained that the defendant was found guilty in 2012 for the accident, but it was overturned after juror misconduct was discovered. The case was retried, and after four hours of jury deliberation the defendant was found guilty of vehicular homicide and DUI manslaughter.
Apparently, the defendant ran a stop sign while drunk and slammed into a 23-year-old recent college graduate. He left the scene of the crime and did not call 911 until approximately one hour later, at which point the victim had already passed.
His attorneys attempted to argue that the test that gauged his blood alcohol concentration was inaccurate and that his car may have malfunctioned. However, even after his retrial he was found guilty.
