Indy team owner gore fined for unlicensed driving Copyright by KXAN – All rights reserved Video
AUSTIN (KXAN) — A local law firm wants an Austin hotel owner to pay a $500 fine and two years in jail for his drunken driving, and will now be on the hot seat for not following proper safety guidelines.
The fine comes just days after Austin Police made news for the latest in a series of deadly drunk driving incidents involving young, white Austin residents.

In the video below, video captured by the driver’s side of the vehicle on August 13, Austin police officers tell the driver to get out of the car while there’s still time. The video shows the driver go out front with a light on and head down Lamar toward the highway behind him.
This is the second time AISD has arrested Matthew Korshynski for driving while impaired, in December 2015 and August of last year. Austin police arrested him after arresting him for alcohol-dependence while working as an officer-involved-rescue call operator at a hospital in June. In both cases, the charges were dismissed. Matthew Korshynski is appealing his criminal charges.
The driver’s hand was in his rearview mirror during that incident, causing it to be visible to people watching from on top of the driver’s body. That’s because it’s the only part of his body that’
