Mary Kay Letourneau’s husband was arrested for a DUI in February after crashing into two cars – and now he could be in even more legal hot water as a result of allegedly driving while intoxicated behind the wheel.
That’s because one of the victims is considering filing a lawsuit against him, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Vili Fualaau, 34, rammed into two cars stopped at a traffic light in Burien, Washington, and the victims immediately called authorities while the infamous sex teacher’s estranged hubby remained in the car, exhibiting what they described as unusual behavior, according to 911 audio previously published by Radar.
One of the crash victims, Terrence Young, has retained an attorney who told Radar that her client plans to file a civil suit, if necessary.
“He has made a claim with Vili’s insurance,” said Cheryl Farrish. “I would think it would be something Vili’s insurance would want to settle. It’s ideal if they admit that the driver is at fault, especially in a DUI case.”
It may be too early to tell, but he is keeping his options open, Farrish said.
According to the calls made to police after the scary accident, one of the victims said, “We’re both standing. We’re all a little bit shook up. The cars are destroyed.”
He described Fualaau’s odd behavior to the operator.
“He’s still sitting at the turn light. His door is open. I’m standing with the other gentlemen that was hit. He’s on the phone calling 911 too. He’s sitting in line as if he’s waiting for the light to turn green. As if he’s normal. Just sitting there at the light. I think his car is dead, he smacked me in the rear.”
Cops reportedly observed his bloodshot eyes, dazed expression and slurred speech as he agreed to take a breathalyzer test. But just before the test was administered his wife, Letourneau, arrived on the scene and told him to wait for their attorney.
A blood test was administered at the police station two hours later, and his blood alcohol level was reportedly .08, which is the legal limit. He also had THC in his system.
According to the King County District Court clerk’s office, Fualaau has officially been charged with DUI, but he hasn’t yet entered a plea.
The next hearing is scheduled for May 8 where he will enter a plea or the case will go to trial.
