    Now , after all this damage he did while driving drunk and to drive down Market street the wrong way and to be fortunate enough that none of us were killed by him, we will see if they let him out of jail. Most likely he will be driving by Thanksgiving and have another chance to kill some of our loved ones.
    It’s hard enough to drive down Market Street the right way. To think of having a drunken nut like this driving toward anyone during a time when that street is busy is a scary thought. He needs prison time. Before he kills!!!

    Do the other charges include ‘no license’ & ‘no registration’ and ‘no insurance’ ??

    500 Dollar bond means the police lowered it to a misdemeanor, this is how our police force avoids deporting these people! Look on Starnews mugshots for Omar Hernandez who violently attacked a man and was charged as misdemeanor Assault with a deadly weapon. Local media wont even touch it!

    You really THINK they charge someone with a lower class crime to avoid deporting them??? Im glad i haven’t drank the kool-aid that someone led you to drink. You should really study case law before posting your feeble opioion. Maybe you should speak with someone in the legal profession before you voice your unintelligent comment.

    You sir are ignorant of the law. Look up NCGS 20-138 and 20-166 and tell me how anything done by the offender as reported in the story is felonious. Police charge the most appropriate charge they have available, and you thinking otherwise is mere lunacy. Put the foils back on, and push back from your computer.
