EL PASO COUNTY -

News 5 is learning more about the man behind the wheel in a suspected drunk driving crash Friday night that took the life of a Falcon High School student. Michael Fay, 52, remains in custody at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center on charges of vehicular homicide and drunk driving.

State Troopers believe Fay was intoxicated as he was driving eastbound on Woodmen Road and tried to turn in front of oncoming traffic at the intersection with Golden Sage Road. He hit a car driven by 18-year-old Michael Finley. The teenager was wearing a seat belt, but did not survive the impact of the crash. Fay was also seat belted and was uninjured. 

Colorado Court Records indicate that Fay was charged twice before for drunk driving in separate arrests in January of 1993. However, both cases were dismissed. He received traffic tickets in 2007 and 2011 for not wearing a seat belt.

In 2006, Fay pleaded guilty to a felony charge of giving false information to a pawn broker.  He also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor false reporting in 2009. A 2011 felony burglary case and a 2012 misdemeanor assault, harassment and menacing case were both dismissed.

Fay will go before a judge Tuesday afternoon to be advised of the new charges against him in the drunk driving crash. His bond is set at $30,000.
