Saudi in fatal Mass. crash wants warrant tossed

BOSTON (AP) - A member of Saudi Arabia's royal family wants a federal judge in the U.S. to throw out an arrest warrant issued after he violated his probation.

Bader al-Saud pleaded guilty in Massachusetts in 2005 to misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide after admitting killing a man with his sport utility vehicle in Boston in 2002 while he was under the influence of alcohol.

Al-Saud served more than seven months in jail. Upon his release, he was escorted to Logan International Airport by federal officials and left the country.

According to The Boston Herald ( http://bit.ly/MKuPmJ), al-Saud's lawyers say in court papers filed Thursday that his 2006 departure from the U.S. relieved him of the responsibility to fulfill his probation.

He left the country voluntarily rather than face deportation. It's unclear whether al-Saud intends to return to the U.S. Efforts by the newspaper to reach his lawyers were unsuccessful.
