He was arrested because a celebrity was involved...
The Twitter account of Kevin Roper has several messages posted to it in what appears to be Roper's official statement. Roper is the man whose Wal-Mart truck hit Tracy Morgan's limo and put him in critical condition.
He wrote: "My statement on the unfortunate accident that happened Saturday: First off my prayers go out to all the families that were affected, my prayers to the man that passed away during the accident (Mr McNair) i wish it was me and i can't express how horrible i feel. As for the accident i have some things to get off my chest that the media and police have neglected to report. First off i never said i was awake for 24 hours, not once did i say that to any law enforcement or media person. These are lies being spread because they are pressured to make an arrest as this accident was being covered "NATIONALLY" because a famous person was involved. Once again the accident was horrific and we lost a precious life, but please remember i was not drunk, high, (I was tested and passed) under any influence of any drug or alcohol, i had an "ACCIDENT' which unfortunately occurred with a lot of media spotlight. If my ACCIDENT occurs with no media spotlight i am issued a few traffic tickets. The excuse of me being up 24 hours is complete BS! I was never charged at the scene of the accident because once again i was not guilty of any crime. Not until all the TV cameras came did the police all of a sudden make a determination i was up 24 hours (sounds good and sells papers) also covers their ass. So yes i am now most likely fu*ked because i had an unfortunate ACCIDENT with the wrong car that night."
