DUI Manslaughter Charges for Tampa Man in Connection with Fatal Wreck in November


The Tampa Police Department arrested a man last week they say is responsible for the death of a motorcyclist last November.

Authorities accuse Nelson Froilan Massanet-Beltran of being inebriated when he was driving down Sheldon Road on a November evening last year. The 59-year-old was allegedly attempting a left turn onto Redwood Boulevard when the police say he failed to yield the right of way to Kenneth Hall, who was driving his Harley Davidson the opposite direction.

The arrest report says Hall's motorcycle slammed into the passenger-side door of Massanet-Beltran's Mercury Grand Marquis, catapulting Hall onto the pavement and fatally injuring his back, neck, and brain. TPD officers say witnesses identified Massanet-Beltran, who, according to local media, allegedly had a blood-alcohol content of 0.0127% and 0.129% three hours after the incident.

Massanet-Beltran, who lists a Tampa address as his residence, was arrested in the pre-dawn hours of July 2 and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on a charge of DUI manslaughter. The self-employed tow-truck driver is currently being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
