A Texas man pleaded guilty last month to intoxication manslaughter in a deadly vehicle crash that killed an off-duty Euless police officers and injured his wife and children.
With the court case finished, police released videos related to the investigation — including those showing good Samaritan Justin Gonzalez chasing down suspect Dylan Molina after the crash and pinning him down until police arrived, KDFW reported.
Molina was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the death of Alex Cervantes, a Euless police detective.
Molina ran from the scene but tripped and fell, allowing Gonzalez to catch him easily.
“You stay right there, mother f**ker! You see what you did?!” Gonzalez yelled as he pinned Molina to the ground.
Police also released surveillance footage from Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, where Molina downed eight double vodka Red Bull cocktails on November 27, 2021, then got behind the wheel and was involved in a minor crash before running a red light and slamming into Cervantes’ vehicle.
“Eight doubles, 16 single shots, is more than anybody should have in a three-hour period. Maybe even at all,” Lake Worth Police Chief J.T. Manoushagian said. “Clearly, not in a good place to be operating a vehicle. Clearly intoxicated. he’s holding another one of those double vodka and Red Bull drinks there, and then he simply walks away.”
The bartender who served him all those drinks, Cala Richardson, who was arrested earlier this month and charged with over-serving Molina. Cervantes’ widow, Priscilla Cervantes, has filed a lawsuit against Molina, Richardson, and Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.
