A truck driver who was arrested following a wreck that killed a Charleston medical student in January had his bond revoked Friday after he was charged with DUI in Georgia, Ninth Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said.
“This revocation should act as a ‘hold’ on the defendant so that when he is released, he will be transported back to our jail,” Wilson said in an e-mail.
The defendant, Arnold Williams, 35, of Salters was arrested April 6 in Conyers, Ga., after witnesses said his truck was weaving in and out of traffic on I-20, according to a Georgia state police report. His breath test showed a blood-alcohol level of .22, according to the report, almost three times the legal limit. He is being held in Rockdale County jail.
Williams is charged with reckless homicide after a crash on I-526 that killed Lauren Baccari, 27, a student at the Medical University of South Carolina. He was released from the Charleston County jail on $100,000 bail after his arrest in January.
