Teen Charged with Florida DUI

A Hollywood, Florida teen has been charged with driving under the influence after a single vehicle crash that killed his best friend. According to the Florida State Patrol, on August 27 Roee Chai Ben-Amor, 18, lost control of his 2007 Kia Optima on an interstate highway and struck a pole. The car burst into flames. The lone passenger in the car, Samuel Gargir, 18, died at the scene. Ben-Amor survived with a broken leg.

After the return of toxicology tests, Ben-Amor was charged with Florida DUI, DUI manslaughter and DUI manslaughter impairment.

Ben-Amor made his first court appearance on Wednesday, September 15, and the judge ordered him to post $60,000 bond and to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet. The defendant and his FL DUI defense attorney also had to answer questions concerning his possible flight risk. A relative purchased an airline ticket to Israel for the young man, though it is claimed that it was done without Ben-Amor’s knowledge and that he had no intention of using the ticket.
