According to the New Times Carlos Bertonatti is back in the slammer.  Apparently Betronatti lied about only having a Venezuelan passport. It seems he forgot to mention that he also posses an Argentinean and a Romanian passport. Based on his past history of not showing up to court dates, Judge David Miller deemed him a flight risk and revoked his bail. He was sent straight to jail. Judge Miller has set an initial trial date for Bertonatti on May 3.

Thanks to Tim Elfrin from the New Times for following up on this story.

    Is it true the biker was killed at 8:00 am?

    Yes for the first question, but I will wait for others to answer the second question. I believe it is yes, but don’t take my word for it. He is a drunk driver and hit a cyclist who’s in the bike lane. He also texted (in his phone) while driving.

    Drunk + Texting/Talking in phone + Drive = Asking for heaps of trouble. It’s a DUI and a vehicular manslaughter.

    Is this really what transit miami is becoming the national enquirer of miami blogs? once known for great informative stories even mentioned in city/ county commission meetings it now adds mug shots and is leading a lynch mob for a skape goat? Common really felipe your doing more harm than good with the negative articles. You think the county will ever add bike lanes on any other causeway now that your it isn’t good enough attitude has caused PW to question whether bikes can be protected on roads. You are losing the war for a battle and stopping a great change in engineering culture that had taken a decade to forge.

    Wouldn’t bikers be safer if Club Space wasn’t emptying its drunk and drugged customers onto our streets every weekend?
