A California man has been charged with murder after he allegedly drove the wrong way on a San Diego County freeway and caused a fatal collision.

Brian Joseph Webb II is also accused of driving with a suspended license, and DUI while out on bail for the same offense.

Prosecutor Kelly Mok said the defendant was arrested in Riverside County for DUI on June 22, 2012. Then again, on July 5, 2012, he was arrested on suspicion of another DUI.

Brian Joseph Webb II paid a $250 premium to Aladdin Bail Bonds to post $2,500 bond and was released the same day, July 5.

On July 28, the 33-year-old man is accused of driving his truck south in the north-bound lanes of Interstate 15. It was in the Escondido area where the wrong-way-driver ran into motorcyclist Robin Vaughan, and killed him, according to the prosecutor.

Brian Joseph Webb II has a prior DUI in Hemet in 2000, and two more in San Diego County in 2004, and one more from Riverside County in 2007, according to prosecutor Kelly Mok.

Web was first arraigned on gross vehicular manslaughter charges on August 1 2012, in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse. The murder charge was added August 21.

“If the defendant is convicted, he faces a sentence of 15 years to life,” said prosecutor Kelly Mok.

Judge Marshall Hockett declared Webb “an extreme danger to the community” and set his bail at $5 million. The defendant will next be in court December 4.

Oh, yeah, him. What a loser who does his best, and succeeds, in dragging an innocent person down to his level of abject misery. We can all only hope that the DA manages to send him up for the max. And then we all can only hope that the sentence does equal "life", and not just a period of time before he's out and spreading his mess elsewhere.

For once a judge makes an intelligent ruling on bail.

He is a danger to the public. Lock him up for 20 or more years

20 years in prison @ $50k per year, that is about $1million. Can I send you the bill?

Nov. 11, 2012

Yes you can, because $1 million is a small price to pay to save human life.

Judge Marshall Hockett declared Webb “an extreme danger to the community” and set his bail at $5 million.
