Back in April, scumbag Hector Manuel Velazquez-Nava slammed his SUV into a car on Pacific Coast Highway while intoxicated, killing film director Robert Clark (A Christmas Story, Porky’s), 67, of Pacific Palisades and his son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark, 22, of Santa Monica.
According to KCAL 9, Velazquez-Nava was driving a GMC Yukon on PCH between Sunset Boulevard and Temescal Canyon Road about 2:20 a.m. when he drifted into oncoming traffic and struck Clark’s 1997 Infiniti Q30. Valazquez-Nava’s BAC was at .24 – three times the normal limit.
Velazquez-Numbnuts plead no contest to manslaughter charges, and last Friday was sentenced to six measly years behind bars.
I have no rant or lengthy indictment of the spineless judge presiding over the case (coughcoughHectorMGuzmancoughcough). I can only state my beliefs are that if you drink, you drive, and you end up killing two people, then you should be buried underneath a mountain somewhere.
