Mario Manuel Castro, OC Sheriff's Deputy, Charged for Driving on Wrong Side of Road with .24 Blood Alcohol Level
Moxley is doing...something...so I'll step up to the plate and use his Orange County Sheriff's Department bat to smash Sandra Hutchens' crew anew. After all, this one writes itself!
On Sept. 30, sheriff's deputy Mario Manuel Castro had a few too many at a Costa Mesa bar while off-duty--like, three times the legal limit too many--and decided to drive home around two in the morn. He ended up in the city of Orange, driving on the wrong side of the road. Straight toward a police car belonging to the Orange Police Department. With a cop in it. Tee-hee!
This wasn't the first time Deputy Castro had driven under the influence--he was convicted for the same crime in 2009.
If it were you or I, Castro would've been charged with fucking with the Orange police for swerving toward their way--some type of street terrorism, no? Anyhoo, the Orange County District Attorney's Office charged Castro today with one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of alcohol with a prior, one misdemeanor count of driving with a blood alcohol .08 percent or more with a prior, and a sentencing enhancement allegation for having a blood alcohol level over .15 percent. If convicted, Deputy Castro faces a year in jail. Fun! Court date is Nov. 16, at Central Court--see you there!
