Faith Hill helped her biological brother turn his life around when they reconnected — and now it appears another family member is in need of her help. RadarOnline.com can reveal exclusive details on the country singer’s nephew's arrest for DUI manslaughter, vehicular homicide and more shocking charges following a fatal crash.
Christian White, the son of Faith’s brother Zachary, was involved in the traffic crash on Sunday, March 31.
According to a press release from Port St. Lucie Police Department, victim Isabel Borges was riding a motorcycle when a Honda Civic driven by Christian attempted to pass a minivan in a no-passing zone. “The driver of the Honda Civic collided head on into the motorcycle,” the statement read. “Isabel Borges did not survive the crash. Isabel Borges was pronounced deceased at the scene at 8:02am.”
Under The Influence
Christian, 22, appeared “extremely impaired along with a passenger that was unconscious and unresponsive.” Both were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Port St. Lucie Police Clerk of Court confirmed to Radar that Christian has been charged with DUI Manslaughter, Vehicular Homicide and Possession of Narcotics with Intent to Sell. The police department clarified he was in possession of MDMA.
The court confirmed to Radar that no court hearing has been set. He is currently in St. Lucie County Jail with a $155,000 bond.
Faith was put up for adoption as a baby. In 1993, she found her biological mother, Paula White, and her brother. Her father, Edwin White, died in a car crash when she was 10.
Faith’s brother Zachary struggled with addiction. According to The National ENQUIRER, he was arrested in November 1990 for trying to snatch a woman’s purse outside a restaurant. He fled, but was caught and charged with strong-arm robbery. He reportedly confessed to police that he tried to “take the victim’s purse to support his crack-cocaine habit.”
Nearly two months later, he was busted again for stealing a Mazda and extorting the vehicle’s owner by demanding $200 for its return. He pled no contest to a third-degree felony of grand theft and three misdemeanors. He was hit with two 18-month sentences of community control and was ordered to complete a one-year residential program that included drug counseling.
Zachary credited Faith, 51, and her husband Tim McGraw, 51, for helping him change his life. “I made my share of mistakes in the past, but Faith showed me that I could be a better person,” he told The ENQUIRER. "I turned my life around, and I owe much of that to Faith and Tim. If it weren’t for them, there’s no telling where I’d be now. They’re both amazing, down to earth people. Their love and support have been nothing short of extraordinary.”
A rep for Faith did not respond to Radar's request for comment.
