OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Officials say a man involved in the Oklahoma City collision that killed local sportscaster Bob Barry Jr. had been "voluntarily returned" to Mexico three times.

A representative from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Wednesday that 26-year-old Gustavo Castillo Gutierrez was returned to Mexico twice in 2010 and once in 2013.

Gutierrez was charged Tuesday with felony driving and cocaine offenses.

Police say Barry was killed Saturday afternoon after his motor scooter collided with Gutierrez’s vehicle when Gutierrez made an illegal U-turn on a city street.

The immigration agency has placed a detainer on Gutierrez. Agency spokesman Carl Rusnok said if Gutierrez is convicted, the agency will decide whether to take him into custody and remove him from the U.S. after serving time in Oklahoma.
