It is alleged that on July 16, 2017, at approximately 3:08 a.m., the defendant was driving a SUV at a high-rate of speed on Broadway in the City of Buffalo when he hit a pedestrian who was crossing the street near Bailey Avenue. The defendant is accused of fleeing the scene without reporting the incident to law enforcement.

The unoccupied vehicle was located a short distance away on Broadway near Greene Street.

The victim, 31-year-old Brandyn Mallory of Buffalo, died a short time later at ECMC.

A return court date has not been scheduled at this time.

If convicted on all charges, Caesar faces a maximum of 15 years in prison. He was remanded without bail.

DA Flynn commends the Buffalo Police Department Accident Investigation Unit for their work in the investigation. 

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Patrick B. Shanahan of the DA’s Tactical Prosecution Unit.
