Bond has been set at $450,000 for Dennis Wright on multiple charges after the death of Bellator fighter Jordan Parsons in Florida, according to a report from Sun-Sentinel.com.
Wright is charged with leaving the scene of a crash causing death, tampering with evidence, and driving with a suspended license. Wright, who has had his license suspended on multiple occasions, is believed to have been driving upwards of 120 mph when he struck Parsons overnight eight days ago. He then attempted to get the vehicle repaired before an anonymous tip gave him up.
Parsons was fatally injured, surviving for just a few days in a coma before passing away last week. He was 25.
Penick’s Analysis: Wright’s actions were reprehensible, and he deserves punishment to the fullest extent of the law. His refusal to follow the law in the first place by ignoring his suspended license multiple times was a complete disregard for the safety of others. Driving over a hundred miles even more so. Fleeing the scene and trying to get the vehicle fixed was a blatant attempt to avoid punishment or taking responsibility for his actions.
