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
If convicted, Valenzuela faces 33 years to life in prison.

PBS Fired Fred Willard from the show “Market Warriors” only hours after he got arrested on a lewd conduct charge.
“Given the unfortunate news reported today, effective immediately Fred Willard no longer will be involved with the Market Warriors series. Mark Walberg of the Antiques Roadshow will re-narrate the shows that have been produced so far,” Jeanne Hopkins of WGBH Boston said in a statement.
Willard has not even been convicted yet and is only facing only a single misdemeanor charge of engaging in a lewd act — but that didn’t stop holly-than-thou PBS from pulling the plug in his series, adding serious insult to wrist injury.
Hollywood vice officers arrested Willard outside the Tiki Theater at 5462 Santa Monica Blvd. around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, Los Angeles Police Department officials said.
According to TMZ.com, officers caught the 78-year-old watching an adult movie with his pants down.
“With all do respect to the individual officer, our belief is that Fred did nothing in any violation of any law. We will be working vigorously to clear his name in this matter,” Willard’s lawyer, Paul Takakjian, said in a statement.
An employee at the Tiki Theater, a 24-hour adult business, told CBS2 that undercover police came to the business twice Wednesday night and arrested an adult male.
