Brian Surewood Arrested For Attempted Murder

Discussion in 'porn star chatter' started by Snowman, Oct 11, 2007.

    The LA Daily News reports that Brian Surewood (aka Brian Gilbert Barnes) become involved in a road dispute with another driver Armando Ayon, a 19 year teenager from Pacoima. Surewood and Ayon were reportedly "taunting" each other and "zipping" through heavy afternoon traffic on Sherman Way (between Balboa Blvd. and Louise Avenue) in a "show of bravado" at speeds that reached 90 mph.

    In a blink, Ayon lost control and collided with a parked car. In turn, the parked car slammed into another car that was occupied by Syeda Arif with her daughter Irka and five year old son, Ayman. The car crumpled "like a tin can" crushing Arif and her son. Her daughter "flew out of her arms." Both of Arif's legs were severely injured in the accident and her son and daughter are both in critical condition at UCLA Medical Center. Barnes fled the scene of the accident.

    After police arrived, Ayon was charged with attempted murder at the scene. Barnes turned himself in later and is charged with the same crime. Bail has been set for $1.5 million dollars each. The charges may esculate into murder if either or both of the children do not survive. According to a KNBC report, LAPD Captain Marbrey stated that Arif's son was in "grave" condition and that it didn't "look good" for him.

    Surewood was driving a red Camero and Ayon was driving a black Nissan. Scott Fayner posts, "Sources close to Surewood tell us that the driver of the other car heckled Surewood, saying he wished he looked like a pirate. "Fuck that! I do look like a pirate!" witnesses say Surewood was heard shouting before both cars took off down the street headed for disaster."

    I have no sympathy for anyone who "races" on public streets. Here in Hawaii, fucking, retard kids do it on the freeway every weekend. Several deaths have occured over the past five years. Whether these people were racing or not, they were still going 90 mph in traffic.

    Throw the book at 'em. Murder is a fine charge by me!!!

    I agree, I mean road rage seriously needs to stop. If you are that enraged that you practically want to kill the person, then maybe you should be in anger management. Knowing Surewood, he probably had smoked a fair amount of Chron Chron as well, but I have to admit, that "I wish I looked like a pirate line," is rather amusing. Too bad it ended in a great deal of tragedy...

    Odd... I'm reading this thread while watching NUMB3RS. The episode tonight is about a streetracer plowing into a sidewalk and café full of people. Strange coincidence.

    The Associated Press has picked up the Surewood story so it's now getting international attention. It doesn't look good for the minor boy who was injuried. He appears to be hanging onto life by a thread.

    In another AP article, Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is quoted as follows: "We're going to throw the book at them and enforce the law, because what happened to that family was unacceptable."

    The Los Angeles Times has reported on the story as well. A LAPD spokesman is characterizing the incident as "road rage." The Times published a companion article called "Street Racing Takes on a Deadly New Face."

    Well over 200 people have commented on the article so far, and public sentiment seems strongly in favor of harsh punishment for offenders caught doing this type of activity.

    Things are not looking up for Mr. Surewood.

    Whoops ... after I posted this, I see that the child was taken off of life support and has passed. Brian Surewood and the other driver are now being charged with murder and other crimes.

    There is a link on the Fox page above where you can see a TV news report that shows where the incident took place.

    Looks like he is about to poke you in the eyes. Of course you know the defense of this attack from watching the "Three Stooges."

    Surewood pled not guilty yesterday at his indictment hearing. The DA is charging him and Ayon with Murder, Vehicular Manslaughter, three counts of reckless driving involving road rage. Surewood also faces three counts of leaving the scene of an accident. Surewood still appears to be represented by Michael Fattorosi although I read on another forum they were shopping around for an attorney that specializes in criminal law. Be sure to read his optimistic comments!

    I understand that Fattorosi's job is to try and spin this favorably for Surewood, but IMHO this does not appear to be a weak case. Especially since there are apparently witnesses who saw the two men zipping in an out of traffic and arguing. As it stands now, I don't see how "experts" will be able to add much of value to this case from the defense perspective. The lynch-pin is whether or not the two men were taunting each other and driving in an aggressive, reckless way prior the accident. This is the behavior that gives rise to the murder charge.

    We already know there was an accident. We already know Surewood did not collide with anything. We already know, even before the accident is reconstructed that it's probably a safe assumption Ayon was driving at a high rate of speed at the time of impact. And last but not least, we know that Surewood fled the scene since he turned himself in later.

    What we don't know is who the witnesses are and what they will say they saw. This is what will determine Surewoods' future.

    That's about the lamest defense I've heard. Everyone knows that if you commit a crime and someone dies as a result of that crime (even indirectly) you can be charged with murder.

    It's like firing a gun at someone, missing, and that person having a heart attack from it. "Oh, but my bullet didn't hit him."

    Yeah, I'm thinking Surewood is going down for some type of murder charge.
    What degree, who knows...but I seriously doubt he's going to get of scott free. Not being in control of your temper can no doubt lead to something tragic like this situation. It's still a sad situation no less...

    I think it's inconsequential (even by law) if his car hit her or not. He's as guilty as the other guy is.

    By the time this comes to trial I don't think murder will still be a charge. What seems more appropriate is Vehicular Manslaughter, three counts of reckless driving involving road rage. Surewood also faces three counts of leaving the scene of an accident. I think he still will get 10-15 years. The murder charge will be hard to prove beyond a reasonable doubt because the state will have to prove intent. Both drivers deserve some hard time not less than 15 years.

    well since he did turn himself in with his attorney and there was not an active search for him they can have good reason to get the leaving the scene dropped cause he did return and i have seen a lot higher profile people do that with out recourse. if they can prove he was road racing it will be a slam dunk for the manslaughter i think they are trying for the higher charge with hopes of a plea bargin to lesser and then they can say we made this happen with the higher charge and it dont help that the mayor is trying to use this as a publicity stunt since his rep is in the crapper after his affair came to light
    but either way brains past will come to haunt him with his anger and reports of drugs just hope he learned from it and deals with it like a human being

    I agree with the murder charge and hope they get him. Racing on residential streets that results in a bystander death seems like murder to me... You KNOW that racing will put everyone around in danger. Whether his car hit her or not, he was directly involved in causing the other car to hit the lady.

    I'll come clean and admit that I know someone who has died as a result of OTHERS racing. I'm admittedly biased in this, but still feel it is the right thing to do.

    Bigboi, it is not correct that the state has to prove intent in a situation like this. A murder charge in the Surewood case is sustainable under the "deprived heart" (aka "black heart") theory of murder. Under the deprived indifference theory of murder (also known as "black heart" or "depraved heart"), the defendant willfully engaged in outrageously reckless conduct with deprived indifference for human life. In this instance, the intent element is satisfied because the defendant knew, or should of known, such behavior could result in death or seriously bodily harm.

    It is somewhat eerie that my Criminal Law in a Nutshell reference gives the following example for black heart murder: "a motorist drives through the center of a large city at rush hour at 80 mph." Does that sound familiar? Other examples would be a workman who tosses a brick from the top of a tall building when there are crowds of people standing below or a gang member who does a random drive by shooting at the exterior of a home, but winds up killing an elderly lady knitting in her recliner chair on the inside. As I previously alluded in my earlier post, "the most significant problems in this area are the degree of outrageousness necessary to render one's heart "deprived" and the extent to which objectivity vis-a-vis subjectivity is determinative of the question." Thus, it becomes critical to determine what Surewood and Ayon were doing before the accident, and witness testimony will be key here.

    Also, in many jurisdictions, a murder charge could also be sustained under the "Felony Murder Rule." Under the Felony Murder Rule, a death resulting from the commission of a felony is a murder. Most states limit the application of this doctrine to "dangerous felonies" or "foreseeable" deaths. In California, the Penal code states the felony must be "inherently dangerous." Some examples include arson, rape, carjacking, robbery, burglary, mayhem, kidnapping and "all other dangerous felonies." What is and what is not a "inherently dangerous" felony has been the subject of much litigation in California.

    At this time, I am unsure whether or not Surewood could be charged under Felony Murder in California. I suspect the answer the yes, but I would need to know more about the specific felonies he committed and how prior case law has handled them in the context of the felony murder rule. For instance, is "road rage" a felony in California? If so, has the court considered it "inherently dangerous?"
