Izzy Valenzuela, owner of Izzy Performance, has been arrested and charged with two counts of murder for his participation in a fatal street racing accident.
Valenzuela recently appeared on the Discovery channel show “Street Outlaws.”
According to the L.A. County D.A.’s Office, Valenzuela was racing another man, Michael Gevorgyan, on February 25 when Gevorgyan lost control of his car and crashed into a crowd. Two people in the crowd died and a third was injured. Los Angeles has strict street racing laws, which is why Valenzuela is being charged even though his car didn’t kill anyone. He’s currently in jail, and prosecutors want him held on $2 million bail. h/t tmz
