along Seabreeze Boulevard after a wild night of barhopping. Officers say that LeVin lost control of his car and slammed into Craig Elford and Kenneth Watkinson, who were on the sidewalk. LeVin then asked his friend Derek Cook -- with whom he'd been out that night -- to ditch the car, police say.
Cook was originally charged as an accessory to the hit and run but later agreed to testify against LeVin in exchange for a plea deal. Cook was jailed again in January, though, when a judge found out about a prior DUI charge and revoked his bond.
A civil suit against LeVin is also pending.
