Newark, NJ -After being found passed out with a bottle of scotch in his car near Newark Airport. Lemrick Nelson Jr. – known for stabbing a Jewish man to death during the 1991 Crown Heights riots – was charged with DWI.

The New York Post reports Nelson, 39, was spotted by port authority officers around 2:10 a.m. on Dec. 1. A Breathalyzer showed Nelson had a blood-alcohol level of .10, above the .08 legal limit. He was charged with reckless driving and possession of an open alcoholic beverage in a vehicle.

Nelson was acquitted in 1992 of killing Yankel Rosenbaum as a hate crime; however, after more than a decade of federal trials, he was convicted of civil-rights violations in 2003.
