A trooper from the Department of Public Safety escorted Justin McKinney, 25 into the jail around 7:00 p.m. Monday.  The Lubbock County District Attorney's Office obtained a warrant for his arrest late Monday after charging him with intoxicated manslaughter. 

Doctors released McKinney from University Medical Center just hours before his arrest. His arm was in a sling as he walked inside the jail.  The other person in McKinney's truck, Justin Walkup, 24 remained in serious condition at UMC Tuesday evening.

Corporal D. Robert Harvey served with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office since October of 2001. Sheriff David Gutierrez called Harvey a friend and devoted public servant, and he says that Harvey made the ultimate sacrifice for his community.
