A 33-year-old Staten Island driver involved in a deadly 100 mph car race was drunk, prosecutors said Sunday.
Korey Swatz had a blood-alcohol content of .10 - slightly above the legal limit of .08 - as he raced Philip Boney-Scrivano, who was killed when his car crashed early Saturday, according to law enforcement sources.
Boney-Scrivano's body was thrown from the 2009 Honda he bought last week for his 20th birthday when it plowed into a parking meter and utility pole before hitting a Citgo gas pump and exploding in flames.
Swatz, of Staten Island, was arraigned on a DWI charge Sunday and released on $2,000 bail.
He had just met Boney-Scrivano at a local bar, On the Rocks, relatives said.
The men were headed in two cars to White Castle.
Witnesses reported seeing Swatz and Boney-Scrivano racing down Bay St. in the St. George neighborhood at speeds of between 100 mph and 13
