    From the comments of the great Reuters link you gave, How to buy your way out of a felony charge:

    I drive through the streets, and I care not a d—n;
    The people they stare, and they ask who I am;
    And if I should chance to run over a cad,
    I can pay for the damage if ever so bad.
    So pleasant it is to have money, heigh ho!
    So pleasant it is to have money.

    Arthur Hugh Clough d 1861

    This is sickening and repulsive.

      Erzinger drove all the way through Avon, the town's roundabouts, under I-70 and stopped in the Pizza Hut parking lot where he called the Mercedes auto assistance service to report damage to his vehicle, and asked that his car be towed, records show. He did not ask for law enforcement assistance, according to court records.

      Erzinger told police he was unaware he had hit Milo, court documents say.

      When Avon police arrived he was putting a broken side mirror and a bumper in his trunk, court record say.

        Not just felony hit and run, but conspiracy to cover up the crime.
         Good thing for him that he's rich.
