Driver Seeks Freedom In Ortiz Shooting

One of the suspects in the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz will be in court seeking his release today.

Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia allegedly drove the motorcycle that carried a gunman to the bar in the Dominican Republic where Ortiz was shot in June.

Ortiz was hospitalized for weeks after the shooting and continues to recuperate at home.

Prosecutors say Garcia is seeking to have the one year of preventive detention ordered by the court canceled and his immediate release.
