Charges Filed In “Rose Man” Fatal Hit & Run

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS)  Seven months after the man known as the “Rose Man” was killed in a hit-and-run accident, a suspect is facing charges.

Antonio Cooper was charged Wednesday with first-degree  involuntary manslaughter in the death of 64-year-old Jerrel Nixon. Police say Cooper was speeding just before midnight on May 17 when he ran a red light and struck Nixon. Nixon was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cooper was arrested soon after the accident but warrants were not issued until Wednesday. Court documents say Cooper’s blood-alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit.

Nixon was known as the Rose Man because he sold roses at various bars and other locations in north St. Louis.
