Victor Chavez Wiki – Victor Chavez Biography
Victor Chavez, 20, was charged with child endangerment after allowing his young acquaintance to sit on top of his car while driving 15 to 20 mph on a back road in Houston on Sunday. Chavez told Harris County deputies that he forgot the child was sitting on top of the vehicle while they were traveling on the local road that runs next to the Gulf Freeway, according to WAFB. “You know how fast people travel on back roads, so if that little 12-year-old boy had fallen, he could have easily been hit and killed,” said Trooper Jerry Garcia. A frontage road is a local term used in the Houston area to describe streets that run parallel to larger highways. The 20-year-old and the boy reported that they knew each other and the older of the two invited the boy to spend the night. If he is convicted, Chavez faces a prison sentence and a fine of up to $10,000, according to police. The incident has been reported to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, according to a statement issued by police.
Victor Chavez is 20 years old.
Police said the incident was related to a large gathering in a nearby parking lot where people were driving recklessly, “doing their turns and running out,” the officer said, according to ABC 13. “People line up on the side and watch them. It is a kind of entertainment for them, but they do not realize the danger involved. These are not professional drivers; They can lose control and kill someone. It’s happened before,” he said. Store owners complain about the weekly meetings, which leave broken beer bottles and trash on their lots and force customers to leave. “Maintenance is done once a month, but this happens every week. We are the ones who have to clean it,” an employee told ABC 13. “Every morning, in front of our store, we clean between 20 and 30 beer bottles.” A new law, which went into effect on September 1, allows police to confiscate vehicles associated with street racing. “We are not playing. We will impound your vehicles, we will take you to jail, we will fine you, we will tow vehicles and I promise you we will do it again,” said Officer Garcia.
