BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Court records just reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com reveal that 25-year-old Drew Blazure is allowed to travel between South Florida and his native New Jersey, but is not allowed to operate a motor vehicle “under any circumstances.”
Blazure, an FAU graduate student as of August, is charged with the DUI Manslaughter death of Timothy Van Orden. Blazure, witnesses say, slammed into Van Orden who was riding his bike around 2:30 in the morning of August 24th on Federal Highway in Boca Raton. Blazure was later found at an area gas station “incoherent” and throwing up. A blood alcohol test conducted hours after the accident revealed that Blazure’s BAC was .21, nearly three times the legal limit.
The impact was allegedly so great that detectives wrote: “(VanOrden) was missing his left foot just above the ankle joint. The left foot was located in the roadway south of (VanOrden’s) final rest.”
Blazure was charged in October with negligent DUI homicide, and hit and run.
The victim, Timothy VanOrden, was determined to have a blood alcohol reading of .048, and a drug screen found “amphetamines, benzodiazepines, buprenorphine, cannabinoids and cocaine in his system” according to the police report. The medical examiner determined “(VanOrden) was not impaired by alcohol” although he wrote in his report, “it is unknown if any substance(s) were psychoactive at the time of his death.”

Blazure is next due in court on June 9th.
The two month delay in charging Blazure created controversy on social networking sites, with friends and family members of Timothy VanOrden suggesting that Blazure’s one-time internship with a New Jersey Congressman led to a delay in prosecution.
