A man accused of killing a pedestrian and striking four vehicles with his car in Hallandale Beach in May has been arrested.

Laszlo Aspirany, 69, was arrested Wednesday.

Authorities say he was arrested on several charges, including DUI manslaughter.

According to a Hallandale Beach police report, Aspirany was driving under the influence when he struck four vehicles with his car on South Federal Highway and drove over the median, slamming into a woman who was standing on the median.

The female victim was rushed to Aventura Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

After the car crashed into a white van, Aspirany sprayed himself with cologne, got out of the car and "walked calmly to the sidewalk," standing next to bystanders who had gathered around, the van driver told police.

Aspirany stood for a few moments and then started to walk away, stopping again to look with bystanders before crossing South Federal Highway in the direction of a nearby trailer park, the van driver said.

When police arrived, the van driver pointed to Aspirany and told officers that he was the driver of the car.

Aspirany fell to the ground and complained of an injury to his chest as officers approached him, police said. He was taken to Aventura Medical Center to be treated.

During a search of the car, officers found a bottle of J├Ągermeister inside, police said. 

A blood sample taken at the hospital showed that Aspirany had a blood-alcohol level of 0.15 percent, police said. The state legal limit is 0.08.
