FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Aug. 22, 2006) -- The son of Miami Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga pleaded no contest to drunken driving for a 2003 incident in which he's accused of hitting a pedestrian, his attorney told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Robert Ray Huizenga, 44, entered the plea to a felony DUI charge and a misdemeanor count of refusing to submit to a blood/breath test, attorney David Bogenschutz said.
Bogenschutz said Huizenga did so to preserve his right to appeal legal issues in the case, the newspaper reported.
Huizenga was attempting to make a left turn on Dec. 5, 2003, when he drove into the path of a 71-year-old male, who suffered head and leg injuries, according to police reports.
Sentencing has been scheduled for Sept. 22. Huizenga faces up to six years in prison.
