According to an arrest affidavit acquired by the TV station, Munoz called 911 a half-hour after the deadly event involving his BMW and stated that he was still driving to his workplace at a Maaco Auto Body Shop.

Additionally, Munoz had “glassy/watery eyes, slurred speech, and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage.” He told investigators that he had left a Hooters restaurant and was on his way to work. His manager informed authorities that he was not scheduled to work that night.
