Joe Senser owns SUV in fatal hit and run, won’t talk to police

joesenser

Former Vikings tight end Joe Senser owns the SUV involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident in Minnesota last week, but he is refusing to speak with the police officers investigating the matter.

They have answered no questions whatsoever,” State Patrol spokesman Lt. Eric Roeske said of Senser and his family. “We can’t rule anybody out.”

A 38-year-old man was struck and killed by the SUV on August 23, and the next day police recovered the vehicle from Senser’s home. A police report says the front of the car was damaged and “a blood-like substance” was on the hood.

Senser’s attorney told the St. Paul Pioneer Press, “The Senser family recognizes the tragedy in this situation, and they are attempting to cope with that tragedy.”

But coping with the tragedy does not include telling the police who was driving.

    Refusing to talk to police = GUILTY.

    “Senser” reading indicate imminent person of interest for police.

    ===========================

    Refusing to talk the police until you absolutely have to, guilty or innocent, and have consulted with and retained a good attorney = INTELLIGENT.

  4. doowix says: Sep 2, 2011 9:34 AM

    Obviously SOMEONE is guilty. However, by refusing to talk, the police have to figure out who was driving when the hit and run occurred, which might not be an easy task.

    How do you “refuse” to talk to the Police? I’m pretty sure I couldn’t get away with that.

  7. wjf010 says: Sep 2, 2011 9:40 AM

    He owns 4 popular sports bar/restaurants around the Twin Cities. My guess is they will all go out of business within months, if not sooner.

  8. thephantomstranger says: Sep 2, 2011 9:41 AM

    The facts will come out. I’m sure the Sensers are getting their attorneys in place before talking to the police, which is their right. My guess is maybe one of his kids was driving. Joe Senser is a class act so I would be surprised if he were directly involved in this.

  9. iflounder says: Sep 2, 2011 9:42 AM

    that strategy worked for marshawn lynch in his hit and run, although he didn’t have a fatality. at least stallworth immediately owned up to his tragic mistake. there’s a family that’s grieving, do the right thing, then worry about your own ass.

  14. Soulman45 says: Sep 2, 2011 9:49 AM

    Who ever was driving should have stop and tryed to help, it bad a lost of life RIP.

  15. dazdillingeristhevoiceofreason says: Sep 2, 2011 9:50 AM

    Nice, Joe. A man is dead, but you go ahead and keep stonewalling. According to the Senser’s attorney (via the startribune.com):

    “Obviously the Senser family recognizes this is a tremendously tragic incident, and the Senser family has significantly cooperated with the State Patrol in their investigation,” Nelson said.”

    well you know, except for saying who was driving the car…

  16. tombrookshire says: Sep 2, 2011 9:51 AM

    Oh, I get it. I didn’t know that it was OK to refuse to talk to police when your vehicle is connected to a murder. I thought they just arrested you and then sorted it out with you and your lawyer from behind bars. But you can actually refuse to be interviewed, even if someone’s blood and brains is all over the front of your vehicle? Wow, I love this country!

  17. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Sep 2, 2011 9:53 AM

    Why not have each member of the family sit in the driver’s seat and see who fits the way the seat is positioned?????

  18. tank352 says: Sep 2, 2011 9:53 AM

    Senser is a class act?? His vechile is proven to have killed someone. A class act would talk to authorities. No matter who it was. A class act doesnt hide behind lawyers. You do the crime, do the time. Especially when you took ones life. This douche is hardly a class act!!

  19. managod777 says: Sep 2, 2011 9:54 AM

    I think it is absolutely selfish and small of Senser and his family to discuss this. They didn’t report it. The police had to track down the vehicle in his driveway. Why doesn’t anyone give a damn about the victim. Someone was killed. I guess it’s ok for Senser to say that it’s not his family, screw everybody else. Apparently his kid or wife was driving. I hope they get nailed. My prayers to the victim’s family, the nameless, faceless victim! He’s “coping with the tragedy? He’s a class act? Did he apologize for one of his family members killing the victim? Whatever…

  20. PFTiswhatitis says: Sep 2, 2011 9:54 AM

    He has the right to keep quiet. But if he has any morality he would talk.
    The family of the person killed does not have the right to go break his arms and legs but they should.

  21. touchdownroddywhite says: Sep 2, 2011 9:56 AM

    @iflounder – Yeah, ok, wait til you or your family is facing vehicular manslaughter charges, and see who you’d look out for.

    No doubt,…didn’t realize you could avoid prosecution if you just don’t disclose who was driving the car. Put the primary registered owner in jail and then lets see. I hate the thought of adding insult to injury to the family of the victim to see a “game” played like this by Joe Senser. Will be a tragedy if their isn’t at least some modicum of justice for the victim/family.

  30. didyoujustsaythatdude says: Sep 2, 2011 10:06 AM

    The Sensor Family called the state patrol on their own and gave them complete access to the vehicle. They and everyone else have the right to retain a lawyer and not answer any questions that could incriminate themselves. I for one will let the investigation run its course and see what it leads to. I would bet that someone from the Sensor family was driving that vehicle and charges will be brought…against whom, we shall see

  31. garyandersonsleftfoot says: Sep 2, 2011 10:08 AM

    First off, unless he is under arrest which would be extremely premature (since the police dont even know who was driving) he has the right to not speak to the police. Even if he is under arrest he doesnt have to answer questions, hence the right to remain silent…

    On a side note I am guessing that it was his daughter (Ashley) or another one of his children…

  32. isu1648 says: Sep 2, 2011 10:08 AM

    They found bobby pins, earrings, and mikes hard lemonade bottle caps in the car. It clearly reaks of one of his four daughters being the guilty party. Which is probably why they’re not talking to police yet.

    “The Sensor Family called the state patrol on their own and gave them complete access to the vehicle.”

    Not right away. Only AFTER news reports stated the type of vehicle it was.

    If the Senser family was so concerned, the member who was driving would have stopped immediately when they hit the guy. Surely they felt the bump.

    And – how can you misspell his last name when it is in the headline and mentioned 5 times in the post?

  36. apooster says: Sep 2, 2011 10:15 AM

    Full facts.

    Joe has 3 or 4 daughters. The car in question was a Mercedes Benz ML350.

    In the car they found a “Mike’s” cap (Mike’s hard lemonade), some earrings, and flip flops (women’s).

    The way the Minnesota media is pointing is that one of his daughters (or wife) was behind the wheel.

  37. clintonportisheadd says: Sep 2, 2011 10:19 AM

    Refusing to talk to the police (see Tiger Woods and Ben Roethlisberger) is a great strategy.

  40. genericcommenter says: Sep 2, 2011 10:27 AM

    There are many intelligent, well-educated, and respected people who believe one should never ever talk to the police. That belief is not limited to other police and gangs. There are many reasons for this.

    One is not compelled to cooperate and has a right against self-incrimination. While I think it is important on a human level to show remorse, it is also smart to consider defensive strategy, and in this case it’s only human to consider the fate of a loved one.

  41. tom35mt says: Sep 2, 2011 10:29 AM

    It’s a real tragedy… how rich people can just refuse to talk to the police when they are suspects in the death of another person.

    If that truck was found in a lower class neighborhood, police would have just knocked the door down and taken the owner for questioning.

  42. rugdog100 says: Sep 2, 2011 10:31 AM

    up2highhell – All we know is who owns the vehicle, not who was driving it… dingleberry.

  43. genericcommenter says: Sep 2, 2011 10:32 AM

    I did want to add, that I don’t support fleeing/creating a Hit and Run situation as a legal strategy. I would feel compelled to act differently regardless of the legal implications. I am just pointing out the really odd beliefs most people seem to have about whether they are compelled to talk to the police. People who know better don’t. People with means and access don’t. Police themselves never cooperate with the law when facing their own legal situations and always get off. The fix for that disparity isn’t punishing the people who know their rights but try to enlighten the ignorant and the helpless about theirs, IMHO.

    He has 4 – 2 are not old enough to drive. The other two are adults who don’t live with Joe and his wife.

    Earrings and women’s flip-flops in the car do not indicate the last driver.

    Seriously, if your teenage kid hit and killed someone and panicked and drove off, wouldn’t you take that jail time for them? Do you think he would let one of his daughters get locked away if he could prevent it?

  48. pondbridge says: Sep 2, 2011 10:41 AM

    An innocent man has lost his life, and those who know what happened are not stepping forward with the information and thus giving the grieving family a chance to get closure. A bunch of lawyers slither onto this site and congratulate this as a sound legal tactic.

    You can always refuse to talk to police…you cannot even be compelled to testify at your criminal trial…if no living witnesses and this guy won’t talk, how would they build a case beyond a reasonable doubt? Short answer, if no one talks, is that they won’t..

  55. theytukrjobs says: Sep 2, 2011 11:20 AM

    Sensor family can likely be sued in civil court successfully but in criminal court it will be impossible to get anyone on hit and run if they can’t place a driver in the car.

    Most likely this was a drunk driving hit and run because there aren’t many other good reasons to flee the scene. A terrible tragedy and likely the family won’t get true justice without a confession.

    I’ll never go to Joe Sensor’s sports bar again.

    No one is getting life in prison for this. I don’t know the law, but I’m guessing this is some kind of a manslaughter charge, no prior record, time off for good behavior. This is 5 years in prison, at most. Maybe it should be more, but I don’t think it’s close to a “life-ending mistake.” Another thing you might want to teach your children is not to lie to get out of trouble.

    You jokers need to remember (and it should have been written in this story, Michael Smith, but was not… hack!) how the police came to find out it was Joe Senser’s vehicle. THE SENSER FAMILY CALLED THE POLICE AND INFORMED THEM IT WAS THEIR CAR! Otherwise, they’d still be looking for it. The reason that Senser family invoked the 5th is that the State Patrol has not handed over their reports yet, which they must do by LAW. What’s wrong with that? My God, you dingleberries are ridiculous!

Maybe it should be more, but I don’t think it’s close to a “life-ending mistake.” Another thing you might want to teach your children is not to lie to get out of trouble.

    Everything they are doing is within their rights. What is moral and what is not goes out the window when it is most likely one of your family members who perpetrated the act.

    Simply arrest everyone of driving age who was in the car. Hold them without bail. Talking will become much easier after a short time in jail.

    You might want to look up the term ‘habeas corpus’; it’s one of the few rights that citizens of this country still have left.

    Given your professed opinion of Minnesotans, I’m surprised you care about that man. Oh wait, you don’t…. You’re just a troll looking for some excuse to attack the Viking fanbase again. Or do you really expect us, after all this time and all the steaming crap you have posted, to believe that this incident flipped the morality switch in that 2-cycle brain of yours and turned you into a temporarily decent human being?

    As far as I’m concerned, this puts you on the same level as that undereducated Saints fan earlier. How about you stick to what you do best, spouting uninformed, outdated, or fallacious nonsense, and leave the intelligent conversation to the grown-ups.

    “paraphrasing: Sensor family turned in the car. Don’t jump to conclusions”

    When did they turn in the car. Was it 24 hours later after blood alcohol content is no longer present in the blood stream? If yes, then the fact that they turned in the vehicle makes it look even MORE like a drunk hit and run.

    In the city, cops will eventually figure out who’s car it was by filtering through local surveilance videos and by cross referencing with all locally owned cars that fit the make/model. Just a matter of time. Lawyer probably told them to wait out the blood alcohol then turn it in before the cops find you.

    Cleaning up the blood would have only made them look more guilty as well when the cops find a drop they missed.

    It’s called an adult conversation about personal responsibility and raising children. Now why don’t you let your daughter change her name from Brett and quit the high school football team?

    I don’t quite understand why people are upset that he isn’t talking to the police. He has that constitutional right. And everyone should use that right. NEVER talk to the police. If they can provide enough evidence to charge him, great. He doesn’t have to help them.

    Now, in a civil case, which he can expect any second…he is screwed.

    This tradgedy notwithstanding, my question is where does a guy who spends all day bantering with other guys on a football website find time 2 give their kids any instruction on how 2 conduct their lives? Just a thought.
