Phill Lewis car accident

Why was Phill Lewis arrested? In December 1991, the actor found himself at the centre of public attention after he was accused of drunken-driving, which resulted in the death of a 21-year-old Chevy Chase woman, Isabel Duarte. She was from Portugal and had come to the USA to work as a nanny.

The tests showed that his blood-alcohol level was “extraordinarily high.” Thus, the actor’s attorney, Barney Helfand, insisted that the person who served drinks to his defendant that night should also take on partial responsibility for the accident.

The actor was so intoxicated that his memory was affected. He could not remember the accident nor the things that happened 10 hours before it.

Here is how his attorney commented on it:

If the {blood-alcohol} numbers are correct, it adds real credence to the fact that he can’t remember. Those are extraordinarily high numbers.

Furthermore, he mentioned that the actor was so much intoxicated that he was not entirely responsible for his actions:

I don’t know whether there’s a defense there. It may not take me out of total blame, but it might dump the blame on more than one person.
