LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors now say a third blood test could reveal whether a 23-year-old man was legally drunk when the car he was driving plowed through a crowded Las Vegas bus stop last week, killing four people and injuring eight.
Deputy Clark County District Attorney Eric Bauman said Friday that results from tests on the newly reported third blood sample from Gary Lee Hosey Jr. aren't in yet.
But the prosecutor says blood drawn 45 minutes after the Sept. 13 crash could show Hosey was over the legal limit.
Hosey's lawyer calls the revelation of another blood sample "unusual."
Two other tests showed Hosey's blood-alcohol level was 0.063 percent two hours after the crash, and 0.054 three hours afterward.
Hosey faces nine DUI charges that could put him in prison for life.
