To you and other above saying no proof. The cops went to the guys house and noticed the damage to his car and they reported damage to the other cars in question. HIS CAR REALLY HIT THE CARS!! They can prove it did with paint and color matches along with the damage reports. The hit and run is in the bag or failure to cooperate with an investigation/harboring/aiding a felon (hit and run is a felony if his friend did the crime he will cough up a name or go to jail for harboring/aiding a felon) UNLESS the guy says he was lying and he was not driving and it was his friend or something and unless they have him on camera they may not be able to prove it. But like some of us said in ealier posts they may say since the fact that the evidence of the accident is true then there is beyond reasonable doubt that he was the driver and he was drunk. Don't have to prove anything... Beyond reasonable doubt.
We will see how this plays out. I think I could beat it but this guy is probably too stupid unless he has a good lawyer. Few tangents this could take.

Doesn't the 5th Amendment come into play here? He's essentially providing evidence and testifying against himself, can that be used in court?
