"The man admitted he was driving and fled from the scene because he was scared." Yeah, scared and drunk.

Scared? Try having a car drive through your house while you're sleeping. Throw the book at him!

I know him. He is my friend's babies dad. His name is Javier Torres . He's a woman beater and I hope he rots in jail. He claimed his "son" a a dependent on taxes although he had not seen him in over a year. He's garbage.
