The man accused of driving drunk and killing a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy had at least one prior DUI conviction and may be in the country illegally.

Federal immigration officials have placed a “detainer” on Adrian Espinosa-Flores, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Master Deputy Brandon Collins

Collins was conducting a traffic stop early Sunday morning when a pickup truck slammed into the back of his patrol vehicle on U.S. 69 near 143rd Street.

Espinosa-Flores, 38, allegedly ran from the wreck, but was arrested nearby. In addition to the manslaughter charge he is charged with fleeing the scene of an injury accident.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said that their records do not indicate any prior immigration-related encounters with Espinosa-Flores.

An initial records check shows that he had a prior conviction for DUI in California in 2001, and was arrested on a traffic matter in Overland Park in 2013.
