SANTA ANA, Calif. The man charged with killing Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others in a drunken driving crash pleaded not guilty Monday to three counts of murder as relatives of the dead and one survivor looked on.
Andrew Thomas Gallo, 22, also pleaded not guilty through his attorney to three other felony charges and one misdemeanor in the April 9 collision that occurred just hours after Adenhart pitched six scoreless innings in his season debut.
Gallo watched from inside a security enclosure as defense attorney Randall Longwith entered the pleas before an Orange County Superior Court judge. About 15 members of Gallo's family were in court.
While waiting for Gallo to appear, 24-year-old John Wilhite, the lone member of Adenhart's group to survive, began to sob. Wilhite, who had critical injuries in the wreck, was embraced by friends and family.

When are we going to reign in these out of control automobiles roaming the streets??? There needs to be more regulations and bans of these instruments of death </sarcasm>
Please please PLEASE let me get jury duty and get assigned to that case!
Randall Longwith, a highly regarded California DUI lawyer who is representing the man accused of killing Nick Adenhart asked for a change of venue. Longwith, regarded as one of Southern California's premier DUI defense lawyers cited the negative publicity the case has received.
There's your defense. Mistaken identity, yer honor. The real perp escaped, while my client was arrested.
Another benefit of open borders.
The guy oughta throw himself upon the mercy of the court. He’s gonna get incarcerated anyway.
stinkerpot65 - It is your god given right to say stupid things, and god bless you, you’re exercising that right!
Presenting the gory, deadly, cowardly FACTS of what happened does not in any way equate with “negative publicity.” Man, I hate cold-blooded lawyer-speak.
