Driver held in death of football dribbler

SALEM, Oregon - Police in Oregon say they have arrested the driver they say fatally struck a man trying to dribble a football 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers) from Seattle to Brazil for the World Cup.

Scott Van Hiatt, of Neskowin, Oregon, was arrested Monday on a charge of criminally negligent homicide.

Richard Swanson, of Seattle, had planned to dribble the ball for more than a year through 11 countries before reaching Sao Paolo, Brazil, where the opener of the World Cup tournament will be played on June 12, 2014.

He was struck from behind by a pickup while walking south along busy U.S. 101 near Lincoln City on May 14.
