COCOA, Fla. - Two charges have been dropped against a celebrity motorcycle builder in a fatal DUI case.

Billy Lane is still facing a DUI manslaughter charge, but is no longer charged with driving with a suspended license or driving under the influence with serious bodily injury.

Investigators said Lane hit a motorcyclist while driving home from a night of drinking in Cocoa Beach last September. Gerald Morelock was killed in the accident.

Tests showed Lane had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit.

Hello, the article/post on Motorcycle builder Billy Lane has a huge typo/oversite. Billy Lane is Not in anyway connected to West Coast Choppers as you have written. Billy Lane’s custom motorcycle company is CHOPPERS INC.

Jesse James owns WEST COAST CHOPPERS. Jesse James was not involved in this accident or charged with anything. Please correct it, Thanks
