Karlie Tomica: Three times over the limit.
Miami Beach Police have confirmed that toxicology report findings show that Karlie Tomica was, indeed, drunk when she allegedly struck and killed Terrazza executive chef Stefano Riccioletti on January 29.

MBPD Detective Vivian Hernandez confirmed the findings to Short Order. "Yes. She was three times above the legal limit." Hernandez also said that Tomica will have to appear in court and face additional charges.

At first, Tomica was charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving death. She will now likely be charged with a DUI and face harsher penalties.

Besides criminal charges, Tomica is facing several civil lawsuits. Jacopo Riccioletti, the eldest son of the chef, has filed a lawful death complaint against both Tomica and Penrod Brothers Inc. (DBA Nikki Beach Club).

Short Order obtained the the seven-page complaint which states that Tomica was "under the influence of alcohol and/or her normal faculties were otherwise impaired such that she could not drive safely. Tomica was driving recklessly, not keeping a proper lookout and violently struck the Plaintiff's decedent while he was a pedestrian."

It furthermore states that Nikki Beach (The CLUB) "knew or should have known that she (Tomica) was going to drive. It was foreseeable to the CLUB that she posed a dangerous risk of injury or death to other motorists and/or pedestrians."

According to CBS Miami, another lawsuit was filed by Patrizia Pesce, the ex-wife of Stefano Riccioletti, on behalf of Riccioletti's two minor children.

A representative of Silva & Silva, the law firm handling the original wrongful death complaint says that the attorneys for all parties are working together and the lawsuits will likely be joined.

She had the nerve to cry while taking mugshot. What about the man you killed, try crying for him. She only crying cause she got caught. We need a lot of good citizens like the an who followed her trifling tail.

i was sad to hear what happened when the first article was released, but was extremely relieved that a fellow pedestrian/passer-by was able to follow that girl home while reporting to the police what happened she needs to be punished

This poor girl is not feeling like such a princess any more I'm sure. What about bartenders who failed to stop serving? People must be responsible drinkers. Servers should also be responsible servers. No? Then again, how does anyone know that she intended to drive home? BLAH! What a mess. Feel sorry for her and her family and mostly, for the family of this now departed chef who was ripped from his young family.

Lock her ass up and throw away the key. She can be someone's lesbian butt buddy in prison.

This woman should have never been working in this nightclub.  The city owns the land and leases it to Nikki Beach.  No response from our elected officials?
