Police say a suspected drunk driver accused of hitting and killing Montgomery County Police Officer Noah Leotta has turned himself in. Luis Gustavo Reluzco was indicted Thursday morning in the case, and he turned himself in just after 1 p.m. at the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

Reluzco, 47, of Olney, Md., was indicted by the sitting county grand jury on charges including manslaughter by automobile and what is commonly referred to as the "Move Over Law," which states drivers must change lanes or slow to a reasonable speed when approaching an emergency vehicle on a highway.

Officer Leotta was working at a Holiday Alcohol Task Force traffic stop when he was hit and killed on December 3. He was 24 years old.

Montgomery County police say Reluzco was not accompanied by his attorney when he came forward, and he was transported to the Central Processing Unit. No bond information was immediately available.
