The actress who starred in the popular television series “Melrose Place,” as well as the films “School Ties” “Crybaby” and “Airheads,” giggled and laughed after hitting another car and killing a passenger, a police officer testified Monday.
Amy Locane-Bovenizer was driving drunk on Cherry Hill Road in Montgomery, N.J. June 27, 2010 when she struck Fred and Helene Seeman’s car as it was turning into a driveway, police say. Helene Seeman, 60, was pronounced dead the scene. Fred Seeman, who was driving, was flown to the hospital for treatment.
Montgomery Police officer William Wilkes testified during a hearing in Locane-Bovenizer’s aggravated manslaughter case, reports the NJ Press Media.
Wilkes said that while the 39-year-old sat in a drainage ditch at the fatal accident scene, she was happy and giggling and telling police that they were being “overly dramatic,” reports the NJ Press Media.
Locane-Bovenizer also asked police and EMTs why they were “making such a big deal” by putting her in an ambulance and putting a brace on her neck, Wilkes said.
Locane-Bovenizer was brought to the hospital for a blood test and seemed incoherent as she urinated in the hospital bed and babbled incoherently at times, Wilkes testified.
“After they had taken a blood sample, at some point she said, ‘Am I pregnant or am I just drunk?’ ” Wilkes said, reports the NJ Press Media.
The court hearing will continue Tuesday with cross-examination.
Locane-Bovenizer lives in Hopewell, N.J. with her husband and two children.
According to Wikipedia, Locane-Bovenizer is married to Mark Bovenizer, who is a local businessman and volunteer firefighter. Locane-Bovenizer was born in Trenton, N.J.
