Super-welterweight boxing champ Lupe Aquino was arrested on suspicion of felony drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter after his Mercedes-Benz veered off the San Diego Freeway at 2:20 a.m. Sunday and tumbled down an embankment, killing two passengers and injuring a third. Aquino, 25, a Ventura resident whose full name is Isaias Guadalupe Aquino, was booked at the Van Nuys police station. The boxer, who could not be reached for comment, was released after paying a bond of $2,500.

On July 17, 1987, boxer Lupe Aquino paraded through Santa Paula in the back seat of a convertible. Spectators crowded along eight blocks of Main Street to cheer the hometown boy in tiger-striped shorts who, five days earlier, had become the world's super-welterweight champion after beating Duane Thomas in Bordeaux, France.

Many in pro boxing become enraged over the idea, but it's an idea whose time hasn't only come but is long overdue: Pro boxers should wear headgear. All right, all right . . . Now that we've all calmed down, listen to what happened at the Sports Arena Thursday night. About 5,000 people paid between $20 and $100 to watch a bantamweight championship bout. When it was over, the two fighters, Raul Perez and Lucio Lopez, looked as if they had just fought 12 rounds with swords.

Anywhere, any time, the memory of Aug. 14, 1988, is likely to throw a stiff jab to Lupe Aquino's face. Sometimes, just driving past a wreck on the freeway starts his mind racing. Although he has dealt with his most recent ring opponent, Jerry Okorodudu, Aquino's nightmare refuses to go away. Okorodudu, a super-welterweight from Nigeria, ended up Thursday night as just the latest of Aquino's foes to hit the canvas, suffering a fourth-round knockout at the El Cortez Convention Center in San Diego.
