Law Offices of Tim Powers, Denton Texas
Twenty-two year old Benjamin Kevin Newman was initially charged with driving
while intoxicated, and is now being charged with murder and with aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon. He is currently being held at the Collin
County jail and his bond is set at $200,000.
He was accused of charging down a group of people outside a bar in Plano
with his car, after he was kicked out of the bar. Officials say he was
kicked out of the bar due to an incident that occurred.
Newman left the parking lot in his white Sedan “but he returned minutes
later,” says Valerie Wigglesworth,
Dallas Morning News.
When Newman returned he accelerated his speed and rammed three employees
from the bar and Newman’s friend Christopher Ryan Brigman. Two of
the bar employees were treated at the scene and “the third was hospitalized
due to serious injuries,” said Wigglesworth. Newman’s friend
was in critical condition and died a few days later.
Newman could face up to life in prison for a murder assault with a deadly weapon.
