Michael VanWagner

Michael VanWagner posted a picture of his wreck car, on Facebook after two accidents that left a teenager named Jason McCarthy dead. Michael VanWagner, now a DUI suspect was slammed for posting a photo of his destroyed Sedan accompanied by a tasteless joke. Believe it or not Michael VanWagner, claimed that he was so drunk the night of the accidents that he was unaware that he killed someone. VanWagner has apologized for the pics and deleted them.

Michael VanWagner, decided on the night of July 22, after partying with friends, to drive himself back home.

VanWagner who was beyond drunk and has no driver’s license, got into his grey Sedan and headed to Coon Rapids, Minneapolis.

The 24-year-old father of one had a first accident on Highway 252 and 73rd Avenue and fled the scene.

The intoxicated man kept driving and had a second accident on Highway 252 in Brooklyn Park.

This time around he hit two cars, one which was being driven by Jason McCarthy.

Jason McCarthy, a 16-year-old honor student, who loved music was seriously injured and rushed to the North Memorial Medical Center

As McCarthy was fighting for his life in the hospital, VanWagner who is on probation after being arrested for making terrorist threats, took to Facebook where he shared a picture of his destroyed grey Sedan.

In the shocking caption which included a smiley, the DUI suspect wrote:

“That’s her front end after I got done with her lol.”

Mr VanWagner also shared a photo of himself with his pet snake and explained:

“I’m all good slept a day in the hospital then came home and did yard work lol.”

When Michael VanWagner learned that Jason McCarthy had died from his injuries, he deleted the posts.

Talking to the media, the drunk driver revealed that he was very intoxicated the night of the car crash.

He said that he thought he hit something and never knew he had killed a teenager.

VanWagner added he was arrested on Wednesday and released on bail and will be charged in the upcoming months with the crime.

He is fully aware that he will be spending a very long time behind bars and is therefore spending his time as a free man with his 18-month-old baby.

    I hate to admit that there are men like Michael VanWagner in this world.
    The best senario now is for a member of Jason McCarthy’s family to find VanWagner before his trial and beat this sub human degenerate bastard to death. Slowly.
    As far as the baby of VanWagner; he is much better off , and will have a better chance in life if his father is dead.

      Anyone who’s ever driven drunk could have ended up in the same situation; if that demographic includes you then you’re no better than he is. Alcohol makes normally nice people do things they wouldn’t even dream of. He was so drunk he didn’t realize he’d hit anyone. When he posted the picture and joke he thought he had only damaged his car. As an alcoholic who has been sober for 17 years, I am someone who drove drunk many times as a teen and twenty-something. Whenever I see something like this happen I think “There but for the grace of God…”

        There is NO EXCUSE for driving DRUNK…………..NONE AT ALL….You are risking OTHER LIVES as well as your OWN 🙁 I’m happy you did NOT kill someone if YOU were driving drunk in the past. GOOD FOR YOU 🙂 On the other hand… Do you REALLY KNOW if you DID NOT hurt or KILL someone when YOU were driving drunk??? Everyone just needs to STOP DRIVING DRUNK…STOP DRIVING WHILE even SLIGHTLY INTOXICATED. There is NO REASON to DRINK AND DRIVE……

    • Lindica says:

      Sad to say, but I agree with you 100%. Maybe someone will post pics of him, after “someone gets done with him” while in jail. LOL

    Michael VanWagner needs to do the world a favor and kill himself. He is the most disgusting evil thing I have ever seen. He is a murderer who should rot in hell.

    All ready admitted driving DUI. Did not have valid license. Fled the scene. Thought it was hilarious that he totaled a car (being he took pics of it and didn’t even have the gonads to see if anyone was in it!)let free on bail???? Why? He’s admitted he did this….why was he set free? Because he is a father to a toddler? Jason was once a toddler too. Jason’s father isn’t so lucky. Can’t use his money or connections to get his son back.

    If you look at Michael VanWagner’s facebook photos you can tell he is trailer trash. And his baby looks like he’s on welfare. Michael VanWagner is nothing but a worthless nothing. And his kid will probably continue his legacy of trailer trash welfare rat until he goes to prison like his maggot father. Here is hoping he gets raped and murdered in jail.

    • Crash says:

      Nice post to make about a CHILD.

      • Jennifer says:

        Maybe if you would have taken the time to look at the child’s face you would have seen all the bruises on his forehead. The fact that you can’t even see white trash confirms that you are one and the same. Probaly a drunk driver as well.

  5. Soloman Grundy says:

    VanWagner will never be able to escape his conscience while in prison. I hope that his prison cell has a mirror over the basin sink….then while looking himself in the mirror, he can , every single day- ask over and over again : “Why ? Why did I do this ? ”

    A waste of life. McCarthy’s life cut short.

    A waste of life. VanWagner’s life in prison.
