The report on blood toxins came back for the alleged victim. He tested more than twice the legal limit for drunkenness and had tested positive for marijuana and heroine. The $20,000 bond was based on a lie to the Judge that the accused "caused the death of an EMS worker"...too bad Patch parrots the government line rather than actually investigates (reads) the actual documents.
