According to the arrest report, 25-year-old Jonathan Wilson was arrested on several charges, including DUI resulting in death, a felony.

30-year-old Ryan Pattison was identified as the person killed in the crash.

The Tesla was traveling at an excessive rate of speed when it "bottomed out," went airborne and turned clockwise, hitting a cinderblock wall several times, according to the arrest report.

Pattison was ejected from the rear of the vehicle, police say.

The group had been at Red Ridge Family Park for a company picnic prior to the crash, and police say they detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on Wilson's breath.

Wilson was taken to an area hospital and, after being cleared, was booked into Clark County Detention Center.
