A teenage son of a multi-millionaire was arrested for slamming a high-speed Lamborghini into a Los Angeles woman, leading to her death. According to the police department, Brendan Khuri, 17, was driving a Lamborghini SUV and was allegedly street racing with an Audi when it plowed into Monique Munoz’s car last month, police said. Munoz’s car was crushed and she had to be cut free from the wreck.
Now, Brendan’s father James Khuri has drawn an immense amount of criticism for giving his teenage son the $200,000 Lamborghini as a birthday gift in 2020. Not just that, Khuri raised many eyebrows after celeb magazine reported: “Sources tell us that there was an incident in Beverly Hills a few days after the accident, and Khuri was surrounded by armed guards. The incident occurred when an unnamed person screamed, “killer!” at Khuri. Khuri allegedly was laughing and joking like nothing was wrong, his behavior nonchalant and disturbing in the wake of the tragedy his family had just days before been embroiled in.”
After the incident, Khuri posted an apology on Instagram: “I am aware that the time it is taking me to communicate this has caused further pain for everyone affected,” wrote Khuri. “Knowing that this will never do justice for the family of Monique Munoz, I want to apologize to the Munoz family for the tragic loss of their daughter… Still, I want to offer my support in any way you will allow me to. My family and I pray for the Munoz family.”
The Los Angeles Police Department has recommended negligent vehicular manslaughter charges against the Beverly Hills teen, Brendan, over the February 17 crash. Charges have not yet been filed because the accused is a minor and the decision will be made by the District Attorney’s office, according to police.
A GoFundMe page has already raised more than £23,500 for the family.
A message on the fundraiser says: “For those of you who knew Monique, you know all of this already but, for those who didn’t…this beautiful, accomplished woman was the heart and happiness of her family and was taken from us much too soon.
“Her family and friends were her life, she never missed a family gathering or a chance to help a friend and she only had love and kindness in her heart.”
