(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A man with a Mexican drivers license and a Las Vegas address is being held for felony DUI  in the collision that killed a motorcyclist Monday at Pecos and Hacienda.

A Metro Police report says a witness told police an SUV turning at the intersection struck a motorcycle which had the green light. Police say the driver of the SUV was Francis Contreras-DeJesus, who told investigators he had downed “one or two” 32 oz beers with a friend after work and was heading him when the accident occurred. He was given field sobriety tests and later was administered blood tests.

Records show Contreras-DeJesus is 41 and resides on Lulu Avenue.
