LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities in Las Vegas have said a man from El Paso, Texas, was arrested on reckless driving and DUI charges after fatally hitting a moped rider last weekend while driving 141 mph near the Strip.
Court records said 33-year-old Andrew James Rodriguez has since posted a $75,000 bond and was released on high-level electronic monitoring.
Police said in a statement that Rodriguez was driving a 2017 Lamborghini Huracan around 11:50 p.m. Saturday when it crashed into the back of the TaoTao moped driven by 58-year-old Walter Richard Anderson.
Anderson died at the scene. Rodriguez’s attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, asked people not to rush to judgment.
