All charges dropped against Heatley?

I've been hearing some rumblings that the CSI's in Atlanta have found that the accelerator was jammed in Heatley's crashed Ferrari.

Anyone else heard this?

If this is the case, then all charges will be dropped.

This puts a new spin on things. Why hasnt Heatley spoken up if there was a car problem??? His attorney claimed an "object" was in the road causing them to swerve I thought....

Maybe he can't remember the crash. It happens to some/many people when they're in serious car crashes.

Indeed interesting, if true.

It would change the scope of a lot of this case.

I know that Heatley's lawyer was on TSN last week, and said he hadn't really begun talking to Heatley about the case, and wouldn't until after the funeral.

Whether thats true or not, I dont kow, but its food for thought...

But there is a lot we don't know here.

Anyone have a link for this? I've got a 6 page paper on the media's involvement in the case, and this would certainly change the basis of my argument.

Not yet, supposedly it was seen on TV, one of the Atlanta stations.

Drat, oh well, if there is any truth to it being a possibility (especially if this is Heatley's main defense) ... then it'll be a matter of hours before the media begins to envelop themselves in this topic for the next few days.

What are you talking about? If it jammed at a normal rate of speed (35 mph), they would've hit 80 mph in no time.

Yeah, that car of his could get up to 80 in no time. It would also explain him losing control like that.

They said he had a concussion in the accident. People often don't remember things leading up to those like the guy above said.

I'm not absolving him of fault or anything, but this would change a lot.

If the accelerator jammed, why couldn't he just push the clutch in, effectively putting the car in neutral?

Great thinking Batman! Now if only you could do that when you're behind the wheel and your new Ferrari starts going crazy instead of behind your keyboard, I'd be really impressed.

Mugs: You only give a Ferrari so much gas to get up to 35. The pedal isn't going to start pressing FURTHER down by itself.

And once you notice that the car isn't losing speed, don't you slam on the breaks? Do you still hit ANY object at 80 mph? Anything's possible, but I ain't buyin' it.

It probably happened pretty quickly.

Two thoughts about this,

Crime Scene Investigators do not look at the cars. They are there to collect evidence. Nothing more.

secondly, heatley is known to speed. hell he has been caught going 75MPH on a 60 Km/hr road in calgary. It was just a matter of time.

Couple of things...

First, on CSI--anything involving the scene, whether that includes the car or not, is in their jurisdiction. It's their job to know anything and everything about what happened. That means the car lands in their field.

Now, onto what this might mean.

Heatley's lawyer on TSN said that he hadn't talked about it with Heatley much, but said "there's a few things we know which we're not making public at this point" or something along those lines. He said the details were still coming back to Heatley because of his concussion. He never said there WAS an object that forced them to swerve, his words were more like:

"We refuse to believe that the car simply went out of control like that. Whether something forced the car to move, we're going to find out, but we don't believe it was a simple loss of control."

Something like that, I'm adlibbing a bit quite sure. But what this could mean is quite simply...it was even more of an accident than we first thought. However, I'll wait for this to be confirmed officially.
