Sizing up to be a quite a case. Lawyers now accusing news of yellow journalism
On Monday, Puri issued a statement denying the allegations and making Elder out to be a concerned man who took care of his friend in the crash’s aftermath and is mourning the deaths he caused.
He said Elder “will be vindicated in a court of law.”
But California Highway Patrol public information officer Bob Lehman said the officers — who are highly trained in accident investigation and determining whether a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs — had cause to conclude Elder was drunk, though he wouldn’t go into details. He also noted the CHP is the top echelon when it comes to skills, training, technique and information regarding DUI investigations.
