Mookie Blaylock is in serious trouble. The former NBA star who spent 13 seasons in the NBA with the Hawks, Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors, is currently facing charges of killing a woman.
On Wednesday, a grand jury indicted Mookie Blaylock on 14 charges. First-degree vehicular homicide, serious injury by vehicle and reckless driving are included in these charges.
Actually 47 year old Blaylock had a fatal car crash on May 31, 2013. A 40 year old woman named Monica Murphy died in that accident. Her husband was also injured alongside her. Monica Murphy was a mother of five kids.
Mookie Blaylock was also seriously injured in that fatal car crash. He even spent many days on life support in the hospital. Later on, he was released from the hospital. At that time, Blaylock surrendered to police and was sent to jail. He was released from jail after posting a $250,000 bond.
A family member told police at the time of the incident that he had been under treatment for seizures. And doctors had told him not to drive a vehicle before the crash.
“He had a blackout and what caused it, whether it be from his NBA career or something else, we’re trying to get to the bottom of it,” Blaylock’s attorney, Don Samuel told The AJC.
Just a few weeks before this fatal crash, Blaylock was arrested in Spalding County for DUI and hit-and-run charges. He pleaded guilty and was sent to jail for 30 days.
Clayton County District Attorney said that Mookie Blaylock could get sent to prison for 33 years if convicted.
