Sams was indicted July 30 for aggravated vehicular assault; vehicular assault; aggravated possession of drugs; possession of drugs; and four misdemeanor counts of operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs, according to a Montgomery County grand jury report.
He has been in the Montgomery County Jail since his Aug. 6 arrest and is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on the additional charges.
“This defendant was driving even though his license was under multiple suspensions,” Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said. “In addition, he was under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash. He caused the senseless and preventable death of the victim by his reckless and irresponsible actions.”
