Police: Mother Of ‘U’ Hit-And-Run Driver Arrested

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –- Police arrested the mother of the man who purposefully plowed into three University of Minnesota students, one of which died from the injuries he suffered.

Diane Bakdash was at Hennepin County Jail Monday night visiting her son, Timothy Ayman Bakdash, when police arrested her. No charges have yet been filed against her, but a criminal complaint released Monday said that she told her son to immediately get rid of the car with which he hit the three students. The complaint said she also signed the car’s title document in an effort to repair and get rid of the car.

Timothy Ayman Bakdash was charged Monday with several felony charges, including second-degree murder. He said he felt no remorse after hitting the students, police said. If convicted, he may spend the rest of his life in prison.
