Lodi News-Sentinel - - PAGE TWO - — Stock­ton Record

STOCK­TON — Port Com­mis­sioner and for­mer San Joaquin County Su­per­vi­sor Vic­tor Mow still awaits a for­mal com­plaint to be filed by the San Joaquin County Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice a week after he was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of ve­hic­u­lar man­slaugh­ter and drunken driv­ing.

Dressed in a suit and tie, Mow met with his at­tor­ney Al­bert El­lis at the Stock­ton court­house on Tues­day af­ter­noon, but did not go in front of a judge.

El­lis said his 77-year-old client was not ar­raigned due to the DA still col­lect­ing find­ings to for­mally file a com­plaint.

The DA’s Of­fice did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, Mow was driv­ing east on Coun­try Club Boule­vard near Fon­tana Av­enue, west of In­ter­state 5, just be­fore 8 p.m. on Nov. 28, when he struck an 82year-old man in the road­way. The vic­tim ap­par­ently was not in a cross­walk, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. When first re­spon­ders ar­rived, they pro­nounced Muham­mad Ashraf Butt dead. Mow re­mained at the scene of the ac­ci­dent.

Po­lice re­ported that Mow was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol at the time when he struck Butt with his ve­hi­cle.
