Man Accused of Crashing into Newport Hardee's Asks for Change of Venue

NOVEMBER 16, 2006 - Posted at 3:43 p.m. CST

 

NEWPORT, AR - The man accused of recklessly driving his pick-up into the Hardee's restaurant in Newport on September 5 has filed a 'change of venue' petition for his trial on charges of manslaughter, second and third degree battery, DUI and drug-related offenses.

Two people were killed and five others were injured when 44-year-old Gary Nicholson's truck crossed four lanes of traffic before coming to rest inside the restaurant.

Third Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Henry Boyce has opposed the request.

The petition is set to be heard by Judge Phillip Smith on January 25, 2007.
