Villians Tavern, just another of America’s hell-hole bars, under investigation after two died
From Pasadena Star News
Family members have set funeral services for the two San Gabriel residents killed in a suspected drunken driving accident Tuesday.
Joseph Almario, 21, and Manolo “Simon” Magat, 23, were killed after the car they were in flew off a freeway interchange. Driver Christine Meng, 22, of San Gabriel, had a blood alcohol content of 0.11 percent at the time of the accident, California Highway Patrol officials said.
Passenger Jason Lieu, 22, of San Gabriel, was injured in the crash, at about 1 a.m. Tuesday on the intersection between the 710 and 10 freeways. All four are graduates of Gabrielino High School.
A post on Instagram shows the four holding drinks at Los Angeles bar Villains Tavern, and a Facebook post by Meng – which a source said was later taken down – tagged at the same bar assures a friend “I am driving but I’m ok. Bitches be drunk.”
A wake for Almario will be held from 2 to 9 p.m. today and Sunday at Pierce Brothers Turner and Stevens Mortuary, 1136 E. Las Tunas Drive, San Gabriel, with a vigil at 6 p.m. today. ….MORE
