Details Of Spiezio's Crimes
Spiezio and his wife, Jennifer Spiezio, went to dinner Dec. 30 at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Irvine. There, the player allegedly had six Grey Goose vodkas with cranberry juice while his wife drank champagne. After dinner, they went to Ten, a restaurant in Newport Beach, where together they ordered more vodka, food and an energy drink.Spiezio couldn't be reached for comment, and his phone has a message on it saying, "Things are a little crazy right now." There's an understatement.
Spiezio left Ten alone in the couple's silver 2004 BMW 745 LI. A short time later, witnesses told police they saw the car speeding, cutting across lanes and crossing into oncoming traffic before driving over a curb and crashing into a fence at Campus Drive and Carlson Avenue.
One witness told police he saw a man climb out of the driver's side door, crawl over the fence and cross the street. The witness said he yelled to the man and asked if anyone was injured and that the man replied, "No, no one injured, no one injured," and then ran off.
