Police: Man struck friend with car, killing him

- Orlando police officers arrested a man after they say he struck a friend with a car, which resulted in the man's death.  .

William Aloupis, 25, is charged with manslaughter by culpable negligence in the death of Jonathan Anglada.  

Authorities say Aloupis, Anglada, and another man had been out drinking on Halloween night.  According to a police report, when the three men returned to the Lincoln Plaza parking garage at the end of the evening, Anglada handed over the keys to his car to Aloupis, saying he was too intoxicated to drive. 

According to police, Aloupis and the other friend left Anglada seated as they went to retrieve the car.  Police say when they returned with the car, Aloupis backed into Anglada, pinning him against wall and causing severe head injuries.   

According to the arrest affidavit,  culpable negligence is "a course of conduct showing reckless disregard of human life, or of the safety of persons exposed to its dangerous effects, or such an entire want of care as to raise a presumption of a conscious indifference to consequences, or which shows wantonness or recklessness, or a grossly careless disregard for the safety and welfare of the public, or such an indifference to the rights of others as is equivalent to an intentional violation of such rights."

Aloupis has denied all involvement with Anglada's injuries and subsequent death.
