OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) - Only Action News was in court Tuesday as the man who allegedly caused the crash involving Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson went back before a judge.
Anthony Prainito of Royal Oak asked District Court Judge Lisa Asadoorian to allow him to get his license back.
The judge had revoked the license as part of his bond conditions.
But in court Prainito's attorney Josh Nucian said Prainito was about to lose his job if he could not drive.
Prainito is a sales manager with CBS Radio.
Judge Asadoorian decided to allow his license to be returned and that Prainito be able to drive only for work, court and medical appointments.
Prosecutors did not contest the decision.
Prainito is charged in connection with the August car crash in Auburn Hills that severely injured Patterson and his driver James Cram.
