Nathan Godwin has two glasses of champagne, one “Adios Motherfucker” (a mix of five different hard liquors), one beer, smoked a blunt and took prescription Suboxone and Lexapro before getting behind the wheel of a Ford Excursion, driving 60 in a 35 and killing Bradley Nakatani while Nakatani was biking home from work.
This is according to a court document charging Godwin with one count of vehicular homicide and one count of reckless driving. He faces up to four years in prison if guilty. Godwin posted $500,000 bail a little over one day after the incident and was released.
The collision occurred as Nakatani was turning left from Northeast 124th Street onto Slater Avenue Northeast. The collision was so powerful Nakatani’s bike split in half.
Godwin admitted that he thought he his someone on a bike, but kept driving until the passenger in the car told him to turn around, according to the document.
Nerds in Seattle also have a rundown of Godwin’s lengthy traffic ticket history.
