The driver appeared to have been either drunk or on drugs, a law enforcement official said. He has a history of DWI arrests, the official said.
Seems awfully early to be out on a bender.

The driver Richard Rojas, 26, of the Bronx, was taken into custody.

He has two prior DWI arrests — and investigators believe he was driving while impaired, sources said.

Don't care to bother with idiots either, but since he threw himself in the spotlight -

I've looked for anything that would justify the claim. Looked through a good bit of FB profiles with the same name.

Haven't seen this claimed anywhere but here so far. I suppose we won't find your source without checking wingnut sites or your ass.
I'll pass.

Wrong, Moron.

Scientology is kind of cultish, to me, but it's not Islam.

Quote:
Rojas, 26, whose car allegedly jumped a sidewalk and injured 23 people, killing 18-year-old Alyssa Elsman, was interested in Scientology, and police don’t think he was motivated by terrorism. However, ABC 7 is reporting that he told police “he thought the end of the world was coming.”

Police suspect that Rojas may have been high on synthetic marijuana, known as K2, the New York television station reported. NBC News reported the suspect was not drunk. Rojas is a U.S. citizen and military veteran with a criminal history, New York’s mayor said.

The Bronx man who plowed his car into a Times Square crowd, killing a teen tourist and injuring 22 others, wanted to commit murder, and then wanted cops to kill him, police sources said.

“You were supposed to shoot me! I wanted to kill them,” Richard Rojas, 26, told police, according to sources.

The killer, who’s been arrested twice for DWI, wasn’t drunk when he went on the rampage in the heart of the Big Apple, a high-ranking police official said. Rojas is currently being tested for drugs, as he appeared to be high, according to sources.

He served in the US Navy from 2011 to 2015, and was not honorably discharged, sources said.

A friend said Rojas was never the same after he returned from his military service, and took up drinking to cope with the stress.

“He finally came home, and it was hard for him to find a job,” said Harrison Ramos, 30. “He was having a lot of bad nightmares. He was talking crazy. He was acting strange.”

It's amazing how from just these few sentences we can know your entire politics and everything you will ever post on any subject ever.
