Man Pleads In Connection To Strip Club Crash That Severed Men’s Legs
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Paramount man who was driving a car that crashed into two men standing outside a Los Angeles strip club, which caused them to lose their limbs, pleaded no contest Wednesday to a drunken driving charge.
Terrence Conrad Meeks, 40, slammed his BMW into the victims, pinning them against a parked Mini Cooper, early March 10 at Sam’s Hofbrau club at Olympic Boulevard and McGarry Street.
One of the men had both legs severed below the knee. The other had to have his right leg amputated.
Meeks faces five years and four months in prison when he’s sentenced in July, according to Deputy District Attorney Nick Swertlow.
