The owner of the Porsche that almost ran over a traffic cop is a car dealer owner in eastern Santo Domingo. Luis Johann Nieto Ramirez says he has been in the business for 17 years.
On Saturday, 4 September 2021, he was captured on video evading speaking with a traffic cop who had ordered him to stop. He refused to lower his window.
He now has charges against him for attempted homicide. In an interview with Mañanero TV his lawyer says his client should be accused at most of “fearless driving,” (manejo temerario) which implicates two to five public official minimum wages fine. Nieto Ramirez says there was no attempt at homicide, as he has been charged in the Prosecutor Office. The lawyer Manuel Soriano says no charges have been placed against his client. The vehicle was voluntarily turned in to the Digesett for the investigation. The investigation could include viewing the street cameras for more details. The lawyer has deposited their version of what happened.
