ROSEVILLE, Mich. (WXYZ) - The man who was charged in the deadly motorcycle crash that killed a 14-year-old Roseville boy will be arraigned on Monday afternoon.
According to police, the 24-year-old Roseville man was riding his motorcycle in the area of Demerick and 11 Mile on Friday night when the crash happened.
Ryan Mannes, who was a freshman at Roseville High School, was playing Pokemon Go with his friends when he walked onto 11 Mile to capture a Pokemon. As he was walking back to the sidewalk, he was hit and killed by the motorcycle.
Investigators determined the motorcyclist was drinking before the crash, and preliminary blood-alcohol tests show he had a blood alcohol content of .14, nearly two ties the legal limit.
Counselors are on hand at the school for students who would like to speak with them, and there is a vigil planned for Monday night in Ryan's honor.
