Porsche driver kills boyfriend in hit-and-run after being kicked out of Santa Monica Bar – Crime Online
A California man was charged with murder earlier this week after a Santa Monica bar and restaurant asked him to leave.
Santa Monica police said Nicholas Ralph Sloan was upset that he was told to get out of the car on Monday night and “picked up his vehicle” and then tried to hit a customer outside the store.
The Santa Monica Daily Press said Sloan just walked over the foot of his intended destination and instead met someone else – someone he knew and had actually been at the bar with, according to Lieutenant Rudy Flores. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Sloan picked up after meeting the unidentified man and was last seen heading east in his Porsche Panamera on Santa Monica Boulevard, police said. A California Highway Patrol officer stopped him near Ventura Boulevard for speeding and booked him into the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station for drunk driving.
He was later taken into custody by Santa Monica Detectives, and on Wednesday the Los Angeles Attorney’s Office charged Sloan with murder, assault with a lethal weapon, drinking and driving under the influence of alcohol with a blood alcohol content of or above 0.08.
According to prison records, he is being held without bail and will have to appear in court on September 21st.
