Morales-Flores was arrested on charges of DUI and driving without a license, police said.
Chapman’s mother said she and her husband said officers broke the news about their son’s death.
“It was surreal and I knew ... this isn’t a dream,” Julie Chapman said. “I’m not going to wake up from it.”
Carl Chapman cried as he told the news station, “I really couldn’t believe it.”
He and his wife have started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Chapman’s 5-year-old son. In its first day, donors contributed more than $20,000.
“If you can't give money,” Carl Chapman wrote on the fundraising page, “please give your word that you won't drink & drive.”
