DUI Suspect Pleads Guilty in Officer's Traffic Death

November 05, 2007  | 

An Arizona man who struck and killed Gilbert police officer Rob Targosz has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident. Authorities say Tyler Fahlman, 21, was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.

Fahlman faces five to 10 years in prison on the manslaughter charge. He could also be sentenced to pay restitution of as much as $500,000. He will be sentenced to supervised probation for leaving the scene.

Fahlman will be sentenced on Jan. 4. For now, he is free on $270,000 bond.

Officer Targosz, 37, was killed in April 2006 when riding his motorcycle to a DUI detail. Fahlman ran a red light and struck the officer. Records show he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.083 percent after the accident.
