Antonio Tolliver, 40, an Atlanta lawyer with a history of alcohol problems and bipolar disorder admittedly had no business getting behind the wheel on Oct. 1, 2006. According to reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Tolliver plead guilty in the Fulton County vehicular homicide case and apologized. He was sentenced to a 25-year prison term.
Attempting to drive himself home following a Falcon football game, Tolliver allegedly ran a red light and struck a cab, killing a woman and critically injuring two other passengers. At the time of the incident, Tolliver’s blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.
Prior to the October 2006 incident, Tolliver was arrested four times for driving under the influence. He had been ordered not to drive as a condition of probation in an earlier DUI case. An earlier Journal-Constitution article provides additional details.
