LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Sunday, more than 100 friends of Micah Milburn gathered to remember him after police say he was killed by a drunk driver.

Louisville Metro Police responded to the crash at 2nd Street and Broadway just after 3 a.m Saturday., according to a MetroSafe supervisor. 

LMPD Spokesperson Alicia Smiley said early investigation indicated that 27-year-old Jane Watts turned in front of a motorcyclist, identified Sunday as 26-year-old Micah Milburn, who died at the scene.

Watts was arrested and charged with murder. 

An arrest report for Watts states she was traveling east on Broadway when she turned left onto 2nd Street and into the path of the motorcyclist. 

Responding officers noticed a distinct odor of alcohol upon contact with Watts, who told officers she had been drinking earlier in the evening but that she was the designated driver, according to the arrest report. 

Officers conducted sobriety field tests before placing Watts under arrest and transporting her to Metro Corrections. The arrest report also states Watts consented to a blood test.  

"Is it going to justify the loss of Micah? No," said Lincoln Grant, a friend of Milburn's. "Its not going to bring Micah back. Its not going to replace Micah. In my point of view, I think it adequate."

Watts is scheduled to be in court on Monday morning. 

"He got stolen from us and we just got to take it as it comes and deal with it," said Idean Taghizadeh, another friend.
