Manuel Orrego-Savala, the Guatemalan man living illegally in the U.S. and charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed linebacker Edwin Jackson of the Indianapolis Colts and another man, has been charged in an unrelated case in Lebanon, Ind.

Boone County Prosecutor Todd Meyer filed charges of perjury, forgery, identity deception and misdemeanor false informing against the 37-year-old Orrego-Savala.

Meyer said Orrego-Savala gave police a false identity in 2017, when he was arrested and prosecuted for misdemeanor driving without a license.

Last week, Orrego-Savala was charged in Marion County with two counts each of failing to remain at the scene of an accident and causing death while driving intoxicated after the Feb. 4 crash that killed Jackson and Jackson’s Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe.
