Roger Avary is the latest celebrity to decide he would rather kill someone than to take a cab after having too much to drink. In this latest incident, the Academy Award winning screenwriter of Pulp Fiction was arrested Sunday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and felony drunken driving after a car accident in the Ojai area in which another man was killed and Avary's wife was injured.
The other man killed was a passenger in the car named Andreas Zini who was visiting Avary from Italy. Welcome to America Andreas. Oh, in the backseat was Avary's wife who was completely thrown from the car. The only reason she is still alive is that she was thrown so far out of the car that she landed on the grassy shoulder on the side of the road. If she had hit the cement she would have been dead also.
Luckily Avary's car was the only car involved in the accident. Otherwise he could have tried to add to his death total. I mean that must have been what he wanted when he allegedly drove under the influence right? Why else would you do it? To show you are a man and tough to your Italian friend? To not lose face in front of your wife? Too proud to admit you were allegedly drunk? Of course you could go the whole Hulk Hogan route and blame it on the fact that neither passenger was wearing a seatbelt. Can't wait to hear what you told your wife, and what you say at the funeral. Oh, you probably won't show up will you? Maybe you will be off in a bar drinking, and then can take a little drive home afterwards.
