Man Who Killed Tommy Ketterhagen Arrested, Faces 10-Year Sentence

The man who killed 19-year-old bike rider Tommy Ketterhagen is back in jail.

Aaron Davison, 22, was booked into the Williamson County, Texas jail on Feb. 6 for violating the terms of his probation.

In February of 2017, Davison crossed into oncoming traffic and struck Ketterhagen with his vehicle. Davison left the scene of the crash without reporting the incident.

After a nightlong search, Ketterhagen’s family found him deceased on the side of the road.

Four days after the crash, Davison turned himself into Williamson County law enforcement.

In March of 2018, Davison plead guilty to charges of manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident involving death. The charge for manslaughter carried a four-year prison sentence. The sentence for accident involving death was 10 years of probation.

Due to a rare legal loophole, Davison avoided serving the four-year state prison sentence for manslaughter.

The terms of Davison’s probation required that he could not purchase, possess or consume alcohol. Davison was also required to take driving safety courses and submit to regular drug testing.

According to documents for the revocation of probation from the Williamson County Clerks office, Davison purchased, possessed and transported alcohol on Christmas Day, December 25, 2018. The documents also state that Davison failed to submit to drug testing on Jan. 22 and Jan. 23, 2019, and that Davison failed to complete a driver safety course “as directed.”

Additionally, Davison failed to perform the community service hours required by his probation.

Investigator Carl Leihardt of the Williamson County District Attorney’s office said that a private individual alerted law enforcement to the purchase of alcohol by Davison.

Davison is scheduled to appear in Williamson County court on Wednesday, Feb. 20. Leihardt anticipates that Davison’s attorney will request a new court date at that time and seek to enter a plea agreement.

The decision regarding Davison’s revocation of probation will be at the discretion of a Williamson County judge. If Davison is found to have violated his probation, he will serve a minimum of two years in state prison and a maximum of 10 years.

Taylor Phinney Retires From Professional Cycling

This weekend in Japan,  Taylor Phinney will zip up his EF Education First kit for the last time. He’ll pin on his numbers, and clip in for what is the final professional race of  a career that’s been beautiful, frustrating, and everything in between.  From the Olympics to the Tour de France to the cobblestones of Roubaix, there’s no one who’s done it quite like Taylor Phinney. He won numerous junior titles on the track and competed in the individual pursuit at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, finished fourth in the road race and time trial at the 2012 London Olympics four years later, completed two Tours de France and last season came in eighth at Paris-Roubaix, his favorite race. He fought back from a career-threatening leg break sustained in 2014, and along the way began to ponder a life outside of professional racing. Eventually, the side of him hoping to explore art and music, the side of him hoping to dig deeper into a place rather than a suitcase… that side won out. We talked to Phinney about his decision to move on from road racing, how he reconciles the expectations held by others for his cycling career with his own ambitions and dreams, and what’s next.
