Just in from TampaBay.com:
The driver who ran into a tea party protester last week outside Gulf View Square mall has been charged with careless driving. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Melanie M. Schrey was driving south on U.S. 19 about 6:40 p.m. last Wednesday when she pulled into Mel’s Diner, where about 50 protesters were gathered in the driveway. Schrey’s 1994 Chevrolet sedan hit Joseph D. Sprowls, 62, of New Port Richey, FHP said. Sprowls was treated at Community Hospital of New Port Richey for minor injuries. After interviewing numerous witnesses, FHP determined Schrey, 23, of New Port Richey, was at fault.
How about homicidal?
FHP determined that Ms. Schrey was “at fault”…this took them almost a week to figure out.
Was the other option available to charge Mr. Sprowls with assault on a ’94 Chevy?
