Mookie Blaylock Turns Himself into Police on Vehicular Manslaughter Charge
After a crash that killed one person and injured another, Blaylock was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide. After briefly being on life support, his condition has improved and he was recently released from the hospital.
According to Pro Basketball Talk he turned himself into authorities and is now in jail.
His attorney is blaming the crash on him blacking out while driving.
“He had a blackout and what caused it, whether it be from his NBA career or something else, we’re trying to get to the bottom of it,” Don Samuel, a high-profile attorney, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Blaylock shouldn’t have driven at all because he had an outstanding warrant for a DUI and his license was suspended. No trial date has been set.
