An immigrant who was living illegally in Indiana when he was arrested in a suspected drunken-driving crash that killed an NFL player had a history of misdemeanor convictions and arrests Matthew Slater Jersey , including at least two previous instances of driving under the influence, authorities said Tuesday.

President Donald Trump drew added attention to Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson’s death on Twitter, calling the highway collision that killed him and another man ”disgraceful.” The president also prodded Democrats to work with him on illegal immigration and border security.

The driver believed to be responsible for Sunday’s crash on Interstate 70 in Indianapolis had been deported twice in the last decade.

Trump tweeted Tuesday: ”So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed (at)Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!”

In a second tweet, he added, ”My prayers and best wishes are with the family of Edwin Jackson, a wonderful young man whose life was so senselessly taken. (at)Colts.”

Jackson was 26. The collision also killed his Uber driver, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, who was not mentioned by the president. Police said both men were struck by a pickup truck driven by the suspect as they stood along I-70 after Jackson became ill.

Since the 2016 campaign, Trump has regularly pointed to crimes connected to illegal immigration as evidence that the U.S. needs to build a wall along the Mexican border and tighten immigration policies. As president, he has threatened to withhold federal funding to cities with sanctuary city policies.

A spokesman for Jackson’s family said they are devastated and planned no response to Trump’s tweets about the crash and the suspect’s immigration status.

”The family is in shock, as you can imagine. This obviously happened so unexpectedly,” Atlanta attorney Daniel Meachum said.

The man suspected of causing the collision, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, had a 2005 conviction for driving under the influence in Redwood City James White Jersey , California. He also has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and Indiana, said Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico.

In the 2005 case, he pleaded no contest to two separate drunken driving offenses and was given a brief jail sentence, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Tuesday.

Orrego-Savala remained jailed in Indianapolis but had not been formally charged in the crash. He appeared Tuesday before a judge who advised him of his rights. Indianapolis television station WRTV reported that Orrego-Savala told the judge through an interpreter: ”I wasn’t driving the car. I don’t know why I am here.”

A police news release did not mention the presence of anyone else in the pickup truck.

Orrego-Savala faces an initial court hearing Wednesday morning, prior to which a decision on formal charges in the case will be announced, said Peg McLeish, a spokeswoman for the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.

The Guatemala citizen, who gave officers a fake name when he was arrested, was deported in 2007 and 2009, police said.

A breath test administered at the crash scene found that Orrego-Savala’s blood-alcohol content was almost 0.24 percent, or nearly three times Indiana’s legal limit of 0.08 percent, according to an affidavit.

Orrego-Savala had prior run-ins with law enforcement for driving without a valid license, the affidavit said.

The state trooper who discovered the wreckage shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday accidentally struck Monroe before he could stop, police said.

State Police Sgt. John Perrine said investigators believe Monroe was already dead when the trooper’s car hit him in the center lane. He said a coroner would look into his specific cause of death.

Orrego-Savala was walking away from the crash scene when the same trooper detained him.

The fatalities come about two months after a California jury acquitted a Mexican man in the fatal July 2015 shooting of a woman on a San Francisco pier – a death that touched off a fierce national immigration debate.

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who was acquitted of murder Nov. 30, had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Kate Steinle was killed. Garcia Zarate said the shooting was accidental and occurred when he picked up a gun wrapped in a T-shirt under a seat on the pier.

Steinle’s death was often cited by Trump as a reason to crack down on illegal immigration.

Jackson Dion Dawkins Jersey , who grew up in Atlanta, started eight games for the Colts during the 2016 season, finishing third on the team with 61 tackles. He was considered a possible starter at inside linebacker for 2017 but missed the season after suffering an injury during training camp.

The 6-foot, 234-pound athlete previously played for the Arizona Cardinals.

Colts owner Jim Irsay has offered to pay for both Jackson and Monroe’s funerals, the team’s chief operating officer, Pete Ward, said.



Associated Press writer Paul Elias in San Francisco contributed to this report.

Al Horford has played in four Game 7s. Jason Terry has been in three, his teams winning them all.

For them, this is old hat.

For just about everyone else who’s had any role in this Boston-Milwaukee series, however, this is new or relatively new territory. The ultimate game awaits the Bucks and Celtics on Saturday night, when their Eastern Conference first-round series ends on Boston’s home floor – the winner moving into the second round to face the Philadelphia 76ers, the loser going home for the summer.

”We’re going to be in a tough position,” Milwaukee guard Eric Bledsoe said. ”We’ve just got to come out and fight. … We’ve just got to find a way.”

The Celtics have been in more Game 7s than any franchise in NBA history. This will be the 32nd such game for Boston, which has gone 22-9 in its previous ones. Milwaukee is going to Game 7 for the 10th time; the Bucks’ franchise is 2-7 so far in those.

”Super exciting,” said Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon Eli Manning Jersey , when asked about how he feels about making it to what will be his first Game 7. ”This is what you prepare for the whole season, training camp, the offseason, it all builds up to this. We’ve got to come out and play with energy and not get out of character.”

The Celtics won a Game 7 last season against Washington in the second round, albeit with quite a different roster. There’s four members of the current Boston rotation – Horford, Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart – who played for the Celtics in that game, and the moment clearly wasn’t too big for them. That foursome shot a combined 13 for 22 in that matchup.

”We have a lot of new pieces, and even for some guys that were (with Boston last year), it’s different,” Horford said. ”Game 7s are fun.”

Boston reserves Aron Baynes and Shane Larkin have a little taste of Game 7s past as well: They were on opposite sides of the San Antonio-Dallas deciding game in 2014, both playing a few minutes off the bench, neither scoring.

For Milwaukee, Terry was part of Game 7 wins in his 20s and 30s, and now will aim to be part of one in his 40s. Bledsoe appeared in his only Game 7 to date six years ago, and most of the rest of the Bucks have never been on this sort of stage.

Both teams are 3-0 at home in this series Robert Thomas Jersey , and the Celtics obviously hope that form holds on Saturday at TD Garden.

”Our guys get to experience a Game 7,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. ”Which, again, we didn’t want. But it’s a Game 7 in TD Garden. It’s what you play for. It should be what you’re most excited about, what you work for all summer, what you work for all year. It’s a blast.”

A look at the Bucks-Celtics first-round series finale:

BUCKS AT CELTICS

Series tied 3-3. Game 7, 8 p.m. EDT, TNT.

NEED TO KNOW: Home teams still win Game 7s about 80 percent of the time, an obvious good sign for the Celtics, but in five of the last six seasons a road team has prevailed once. If Milwaukee pulls this off, the Bucks will become the sixth No. 7 playoff seed since 1984 to eliminate a No. 2 seed – and would end the NBA’s longest drought without a series win. The Bucks haven’t been to the second round since 2001.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Bucks F Giannis Antetokounmpo decided he needed to be more aggressive before Game 6, then led the team with 31 points and 14 rebounds to help Milwaukee avoid elimination. A Game 7 win – especially one in a place as storied as Boston – would only accelerate Antetokounmpo’s rise toward superstardom, if he isn’t there already.

PRESSURE IS ON: Anyone who tries a 3-pointer. These teams are fairly reliant on the long ball, and they have struggled in Games 5 and 6 to get anything going from beyond the arc. The teams combined to shoot 19 for 64 from beyond the arc in Game 5 and 18 for 62 in Game 6, part of the reason why neither club has reached the 100-point mark since Game 4.

INJURY UPDATE: Bucks C John Henson (back) has missed the last four games.
