A wire report last week announced that Arjun Atwal had been cleared in the street racing manslaughter case and included this quote from him:
"The (investigation) report went to the state attorney's office two weeks ago and last week I got a call from my lawyer saying they have thrown all the charges out. So, I am clear," Atwal, who is in Gurgaon for the Johnnie walker Classic told reporters on Thursday.
Steve Elling placed a call and it sounds like Atwal either needs to get a new attorney, or he had a really bad cell reception over in India:
Danielle Tavernier, a spokesperson for the State Attorney's office, said the overseas reports were inaccurate. "It's an open, active case," she said.
