Mary Kay Letourney's undergraduate student was reportedly arrested and charged with driving under the impact of his SUV's crash in two cars in Washington State.
Vili Fualaau, 34, could not stop his Mercury Mountaineer in 2002. Two cars stopped by a light in Burien in February, TMZ reported on Thursday, citing court documents.
Fualaau was about to hold a field sobriety test when Letourneau showed up and told him to stop cooperating with the police because her lawyer was coming, TMZ reports. Fualaau is said to have taken a blood test at a police station and, according to the Daily Mail, was booked and released for the DUI charge.
Fualaau's BAC was .08 and he also had THC in his blood, prosecutors told TMZ.
He was not required to take a mug shot when he was posted, The Daily Mail reported. He is reportedly scheduled for trial next week.
Fualaau requested separation from Letourneau in May of last year, nearly 20 years after being detained for sexual relations with him while he was in sixth grade, TMZ reported at the time.
Letourneau, 56, was a married mother of four and a primary school teacher when she began her affair with Fualaau. She was arrested in March 1997 after a relative of her then-husband, Steve Letourneau, notified the police. She gave birth to a daughter conceived in May 1997 by Fualaau.
Letourneau eventually pleaded guilty in two cases of second-degree rape and was sentenced to six months in prison. She was expelled from Fualaau during her trial, but broke the agreement in 1998 when she became pregnant with Fualaau's baby for the second time. She was eventually sentenced to seven and a half years in state prison.
The couple got married when she was released, at which time Fualaau was 22. Fualaau had to sue another court order to repeal the original court order Letourneau forbade him to see him.
