Lauren Santo Domingo’s Husband Pleads Guilty To Hit-And-Run Incident
On Monday, Andres Santo Domingo — as in Lauren Santo Domingo‘s husband and heir to Colombia’s biggest beer company — pled guilty to a hit-and-run incident that occurred in March of last year. His victim is still suing in civil court for $100 million.
Andres was driving his Mercedes Benz on 34th Street and 3rd Avenue in New York when he hit 26-year-old Ryan Coutu with his rear view mirror and ran over the college student’s foot. Coutu suffered herniated disks in his back and needed elbow surgery.
Andres pled guilty to leaving the scene, and has been sentenced to six days of community service. He will also lose his driver’s license for 90 days and will have to attend a driving program. Coutu isn’t satisfied with the sentence and is continuing with his $100 million civil suit. He issued the following statement:
“After having to endure surgery and spending over 100 days in physical therapy it does seem unfair that the criminal only gets six days community service, but at least he finally admitted to what he did. Sentencing is the judge’s job — my job is only to get better. Hopefully he won’t plow anyone else down.”
