Police say the incident happened on December 28, 2018, near Santa Maria Brewing Company in Paso Robles.
Investigators say several of Hale’s friends were trying to stop her from driving, including the victim. Police say he was thrown from the vehicle and hit the pavement in the process.
In February, Hale pleaded not guilty to charges including felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury, driving with a blood-alcohol level above .08 percent causing injury and leaving the scene of the accident.
