Drunk driver allegedly fled scene with severed arm of pedestrian he’d just killed

Police say a suspected drunk driver struck and killed a pedestrian leaving a Hooters in Texas, then fled the scene with the victim’s severed arm in the front seat of his BMW.

Juan Morgan Munoz, 31, allegedly struck the victim in Dallas just after midnight Saturday and then fled toward his workplace, Maaco Auto Body Shop, about a mile away. Fox 4 report.

Munoz, who was already on probation after a DUI conviction, called 911 himself about an hour later.

According to an arrest affidavit, when officers arrived at Munoz’s workplace they found his vehicle with a large hole in the windshield and a bloody “unarm” lying in the passenger seat.

Police said other bodies were found inside the vehicle.

The suspect, who police described as having “watery eyes, slurred speech” and smelling of alcohol, claimed he had “only had one Patron shot that afternoon” before the horrific hit-and-run.

Police said he failed field sobriety tests multiple times and his breath test reading came back at 0.179, more than twice the legal limit.

Munoz was taken into custody on felony charges of DUI and causing death.

He already pleaded guilty to drunk driving charges in New Hampshire in 2018 and in Fort Worth, Texas, last summer.

The victim in the most recent incident has not yet been made public.
