The man accused of killing an NFL player and another man in a DUI-related crash Sunday morning is a illegal alien whom authorities are trying to deport, according to charging documents.
“It is believed Gonsales was intoxicated and was driving without a license,” Sgt. John Perrine of the Indiana State Police said in a statement. “He was transported to the Marion County Jail, the result of the test for intoxication is pending.”
Police believe, according to reports first cited in the Indianapolis Star, that Mr. Monroe had pulled over to assist an ill Mr. Jackson.
“Edwin Jackson always brought a smile to our locker room and the community. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time. We will miss him greatly,” the Colts tweeted on their official account.
The account also retweeted numerous players and coaches and members of the Indianapolis community expressing shock and giving praise to Mr. Jackson.
Although he played football in high school in Atlanta and was also a state-finalist wrestler, Mr. Jackson did not get a football scholarship and first made it onto the football team at Georgia Southern University as a walk-on player.
