"I Hope he Goes to Jail for Life"; Milwaukee Man Charged with Wrong Way Crash on I-43
A 36-year-old Milwaukee man is facing 13 felony charges for his alleged role in a wrong-way driving incident on I-43.
Police say Chaze Biami had a BAC of 0.149, when he merged onto I-43 from the Fond du Lac ramp, heading the wrong direction.
Surveillance video released Thursday shows Biami narrowly missing four vehicles, before smashing head-on into a blue Ford Escort.
That vehicle was carrying a 28-year-old woman and two children, ages 5 and 3, according to police.
The husband of that woman, and the father of the 5-year-old child tells CBS-58 he's hoping Biami spends his life behind bars.
"I'm furious," says Brandon Mathews. "All he got was a cut above his eye. My daughter is paralyzed from the chest down, my wife is in a medically induced coma because if she moves she could be paralyzed from the neck down."
According to a criminal complaint, Biami told authorities he drank "not that much", and thought the crash was a simple "fender bender." When told of his potential charges, authorities say Biami told a deputy "10 felonies, man I guess I'll have to take a deal for like what? Three years?"
Biami is facing 133 years in prison.
"I hope he goes to jail for the rest of his life," says Mathews. "He deserves it."
