Meet DA Nancy E. O'Malley

Statement from DA O’Malley on Charges Filed Against Mohammed Abraar Ali

“This morning, my office filed a criminal complaint against Mohammed Abraar Ali alleging a violation of penal code section 187, murder, with a special allegation of great bodily injury. The complaint also alleged additional felony charges with special allegations including driving under the influence, driving and causing injury with a blood alcohol content over 0.08%, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol causing injury, and an infraction for speeding greater than 100 miles per hour," said Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O'Malley.

“We extend our very deep sympathies to the family of Officer Camilleri, to his friends, and his CHP family. We also hope for a speedy and full recovery of Officer Velazquez.

"As with all victims of crime, and those who have lost a family member because of crime, the Victim-Witness Division of my office will provide services to the family of Officer Camilleri as well as Officer Vasquez, and we will provide support, resources, and assistance as they need, and as we can.

"Since Thanksgiving, we have seen six tragic deaths at the hands of individuals who are driving, or alleged to be driving, under the influence of a substance, either alcohol drugs or a combination of both. That loss of life is avoidable if every driver acts responsibly and lawfully. Over the holidays, hundreds of arrests were also made for driving under the influence in Alameda County. When will we say ‘enough is enough’, and finally reach a point where every single driver on the road realizes that he or she cannot and must not drink, smoke, take drugs, and get behind the wheel of a car.

"To our community: if you are going to drink, smoke, or take drugs that affect your ability to drive, please arrange for a designated driver or call for a ride. I urge you to be smart before it’s too late."
