KENT, WA (February 28, 2019) –Nicholas Slater was arrested for a DUI after striking and Killing Alan Kern on 108th Avenue.
 
The 73-year-old victim was identified Monday afternoon by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office as Alan Kern. He suffered multiple blunt force injuries.
 
The victim got off a Metro bus near the intersection of 108th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 204th Street. He was crossing 108th west to east Saturday evening around 6:00 p.m.

In addition to blowing a .344 during a breathalyzer test at the scene of the crime, Slater also blew a .321 – roughly an hour and a half after the collision. Police said Slater was shaking as he was going through alcohol withdraw.
 
A court document stated that Slater left a bar to lock up a city park before the incident. He was said to be a temporary employee of the parks department and was on the job for less than four months.
