The man arrested on Wednesday in connection with the death of “Tapout” founder Charles “Mask” Lewis Jr., has been formally charged with vehicular manslaughter after a brutal crash left the clothing company entrepreneur’s Ferrari ripped in half by a cement pole in Newport Beach, Calif.

Jeffrey D. Kirby, 51, of Costa Mesa, Calif., has been charged with “one felony count of vehicular manslaughter by unlawful act with gross negligence while intoxicated, one felony count of driving under the influence causing bodily injury, and sentencing enhancements for fleeing the scene of a vehicular manslaughter and causing great bodily injury to multiple victims,” according to a press release from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

Kirby, who has a prior 2002 conviction for driving under the influence, faces a maximum sentence of 19 years and eight months if convicted.

Kirby is being held on $2 million bail and will be arraigned on Friday afternoon at the Harbor Justice Center in Newport Beach, Calif.


Aside from the fact that he killed a guy driving drunk, this dude sounds like a complete douchebag.  Apparently while being pulled over for his first DUI he told the arresting officer that "his father was an ex cop and had told him to never agree to a sobriety test" and also told the officer (heres the real douchey capper) - "You shouldn't be picking on people with money."  Hope you can use that to buy yourself a great lawyer you're gonna be a meat treat in the pen buddy.
