Repeat Offender Arrested for Vehicular Homicide, DUI

Posted: Updated:

A man from Mobile remains in Mobile Metro Jail Monday night, charged with DUI and Vehicular Homicide. Police say Alexander Graf was intoxicated when he slammed his car into a biker in Downtown Mobile Saturday night.

Those who knew Edward Mack say you could always find him riding his bike around Downtown Mobile. Police say that's exactly what he was doing when a drunk driver struck and killed him.

"When we arrived on scene, we did find the victim unconscious, lying in the intersection," said Ashley Rains, a public information officer with the Mobile Police Department.

The accident happened around midnight Saturday night at the intersection of St. Francis Street and North Bayou Street.

The accused drunk driver, 28-year-old Alexander Graf, was arrested on scene and charged with DUI and Vehicular Homicide. Jail records show he's been arrested at least four times in the last ten years - each time on alcohol-related charges.

Although the investigation is ongoing, police say it's a good reminder for drivers and pedestrians to be more mindful on the road.

"If you're on a bike or if you're walking in an area that has a high traffic, you also need to be aware of intersections, and wear bright clothing," said Ashley Rains.

Edward Mack died three days before his 60th birthday.
