Prosecutors claim that 50 year old David Hatyina had been using alcohol and cocaine before driving a boat that struck and killed a 10 year old boy onPetiteLake. Hatyina has been charged with five counts of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol that resulted in death, and two counts of reckless homicide in the July 28 death of Tony Borcia.

The young boy and his 12 year old sister had been tubing behind a boat their father was driving. Waves caused the boy to fall off the tube and into the lake. His father turned the boat around to pick him up, but Hatyina appeared with his 29-foot Baja speed boat, driving it right towards Tony, ignoring attempts from the boy’s older siblings to get his attention to stop. Instead, Hatyina kept on driving and plowed his boat into the boy, killing him.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Blood samples showed that Hatyina had taken cocaine just hours before the accident and that his blood alcohol content was between .09 percent and .128 percent at the time of the crash. Witnesses told police that before the accident, Hatyina had been speeding his boat on the lake and had almost caused several accidents with his reckless driving.


Lorenzo Bracey was all set for his prom. He had the clothes – a white tuxedo with a gray and black vest, a white shirt and the wheels to get there. The problem, police say, was the way he obtained his transportation. Bracey, 20, ‘reserved’ the vehicle by stealing the SUV from its owner at gunpoint.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Bracey carjacked the maroon 1997 Ford Expedition earlier that morning, in the 1200 block of South Independence Boulevard. About ten hours later, the owner of the vehicle spotted it parked at a McDonald’s less than a mile away from where it had been stolen.

When the police arrived, they found Bracey still at the restaurant, all dressed in his tux. He told them he was planning to attend prom that night; however the report did not specify where the prom was being held or who he was planning on attending it with.
