Drunk Driver Convicted of Killing Officer Noah Leotta to be Released This Week For Good Behavior

According to a report by NBC4, Luis Gustavo Reluzco, the man convicted of killing Officer Noah Leotta in December 2015, is being released this Friday from prison on good behavior credit.

Reluzco, who was drunk at the time of the accident, struck Leotta with his car while Leotta was preforming an unrelated traffic stop.  Reluzco was drinking at the former Hooters on Rockville Pike in the hours leading up to this. Leotta died a week later from his injuries.

Reluzco was sentenced to ten years in prison in 2016. Noah’s Law was passed in October of that same year, which requires an ignition interlock device to be installed on the car of anyone found guilty of drunk driving.

There will be a blood drive on June 6th in honor of the late Noah Leotta.
