SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The Macomb County sheriff says no charges will be filed in a high-speed crash that killed three teens at a park in May.

Sheriff Anthony Wickersham says there’s evidence that all five boys in the Jaguar had been drinking alcohol. He says the driver’s blood-alcohol level was 0.08, which qualifies for drunken driving in Michigan.

The driver, Jonathan Manolios, was killed, along with Emanuel “Manny” Malaj and Michael Wells. Two boys survived. All were 17.

The sheriff says the Jaguar probably was traveling at more than 70 mph before it hit a guardrail and flipped five times at Stony Creek Metropark, 35 miles north of Detroit.

Wickersham says the boys who survived could face a misdemeanor for underage drinking, but no charges directly related to the crash will be pursued.
