MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A friend of a 28-year-old man accused of DUI vehicular homicide is speaking out. Neil Murdock said he can't believe Alexander Graf is capable of such a crime.
"I knew [Graf] when he played football at McGill, and I've known him ever since I moved here," Murdock said.
Murdock said the two have always been close. Graf is friends with his son.
"He's a good kid," Murdock said. "I've known him a very long time, known is parents. He just made a tragic mistake."
Green paint outlines the scene near the intersection of St. Francis and North Bayou Street. Authorities said that's where Graf was driving drunk when he struck and killed Edward Mack.
According to jail records, it's Graf's second DUI since 2006.
All of Graf's charges in Metro Jail involve alcohol, with two public intoxication charges and a minor in possession of alcohol charge.
The new charges, however, could have Graf locked up for years.
"It's very upsetting, very upsetting," Murdock said. "I hate it. I really do."
