A Georgetown man was sentenced to 25 years in prison in the death of a 22-year-old wrestler who was killed in a drunken-driving crash in 2010.

Carl Lewis, 60, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for first-degree manslaughter and five years for wanton endangerment. The sentences are to run consecutively for a total of 25 years.

Glen Bussell was a pro wrestler known as "Ice Pick.” He was also assistant manager of the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Georgetown.

Georgetown police said a vehicle driven by Lewis, who was under the influence, crossed the center line on U.S. 460 and hit three other vehicles, including Bussell's.

After the crash, Bussell's family created a non-profit organization called Glen's Angels. It is dedicated to raising the awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and pushes for stiffer sentences for offenders.
