The latest reports are that the suspect was released from the hospital before he could be taken into custody. Which is ridiculous that the police let this guy go. From all accounts there isn't a question that he was drunk or hit the Amish buggy/horse. But they just let the guy walk out?!?
Current charges being filed on Francisco J. Gonzalez are failure to stop after a vehicle accident, operating while intoxicated, and operating a vehicle while per se intoxicated. Seriously, that's it! What a joke.
The police have dismissed the 5 Amish boys & witness statements that it was intentional. Even though video from Walmart shows the guy making a u-turn and heading back in the direction of the Amish. The driver was drunk (.17 blood/alcohol). There was a mug shot posted of the suspect, but it was from a prior arrest.
It's a lot like nuts and bolts - if the rider's nuts, the horse bolts! ~Nicholas Evans
