Alonzo Mourning Cited by Police for Leaving Scene of Accident
It's been a strange week for Miami Heat star-turned-executive Alonzo Mourning. He was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident, with the other driver filing a lawsuit. He then hosted his annual Zo's Summer Grove charity weekend only to have Dave Chappelle involved in a metaphoric on-stage car crash. Now he faces actual misdemeanor charges stemming from the actual accident.
William Candelario, 21, an art student, had already gotten into one car accident on the Julia Tuttle Causeway early last Sunday morning when Mourning came along in his Porsche and hit Candelario's stopped car. Candelario claims his car then flipped several times and that Mourning left the scene before returning about 45 minutes later in a car driven by his wife.
According to the AP, Mourning has now been issued a notice to appear in court for the second-degree misdemeanor of leaving the scene of an accident with property damage. He's also in trouble for leaving the scene without leaving behind information.
