Tony Stewart case will go to grand jury

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nas...death/15724209/

The Ontario County District Attorney's office will take the Tony Stewart case to a grand jury, D.A. Michael Tantillo said in a statement Tuesday afternoon.

Stewart struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr., 20, on Aug. 9 during a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park.

"Over the past several weeks, I have reviewed with members of the Ontario County Sheriff's Department their investigation, as it progressed, in the Tony Stewart matter," he said. "Recently that office concluded its work and forwarded the complete case file to me. Upon my review of all of the information contained in the entire investigation, I have made the determination that it would be appropriate to submit the evidence to a grand jury, for their determination as to what action should be taken in this matter.

"Accordingly, the evidence developed in the investigation will be presented to an Ontario County grand jury in the near future."

Tantillo said grand jury proceedings in New York are strictly confidential and he could not say when the matter would be scheduled other than to say it would be in the "near future."

"Similarly, because of the confidential nature of these proceedings, I cannot state who will be called as witnesses, or what any witness's expected testimony will be," he said. "When the presentation has been completed and a determination has been made, I will advise the public and the media at that time of the results."

No charges will be brought down on Stewart, announced today.

Also, the victim was under the influence of pot at the time of the accident.


Where have you been? I had to work late... Oh these? Yeah, it was 'camo day' at work again .

I am for legalizing pot for medical and recreational use, but that dude is an idiot for smoking before a race. I hate that he got killed, that is horrible.

So basically Ward jeopardized everyone on the track as well in the pits on this evening. Shame he lost his life but not bright.

Re: Tony Stewart case will go to grand jury

I might be wrong but the pot could have been smoked days before the race.

I agree with you. You would think these guys could wait until after the season to have fun. Pot shows up in the system for a long time. I never understood athletes when it comes to these things.

I believe the toxicology report said the THC was at high enough levels to indicate he was likely impaired by the pot up until his death.

3B NRA NWTF: I do have to fine you. That will be a thousand dollars Canadian, or 10 American dollars if you prefer.

Re: Tony Stewart case will go to grand jury

the pot use really does surprise me...most racers are in to coke...it's the kind of high speed ruch they need for racing, whereas pot is a downer....doesn't really fit in with racing.
