Stewart Richardson, 44, has a history of DWI offenses in several states, Arlington police said.
The mother of a toddler who was left 80 percent brain dead following a collision with a repeat DWI offender, had harsh words for the man on the day her child was finally released from the hospital.
"I hate this man. I've never wished anything bad on anybody but I wish torture for this man," Loubna Elharazin said. "I wish I could take 24 bottles of beer and a bottle of tequila -- that's how much he had that night -- and then just go bail him out and then just show him what brain damage is like."
Her son, Abdallah Khader, will turn 3 years old on April 25, an event she said he would likely never even be aware of.
"He's never going to sit, walk, eat, see -- nothing is going to change, he's not going to be able to do anything of those things," Elharazin said.
Stewart Richardson, 44, is being held on charges of intoxication assault with serious bodily injury, with bond set at $100,000.
Richardson has a history of DWI offenses in several states, Arlington police said. The pickup truck Richardson was driving rear-ended the vehicle Abdallah's family was riding in on Feb. 20. Abdallah suffered severe head trauma and spent more than two months at Cook Children's Hospital.
