Man's bond set at $250,000 for alleged DUI accident

A South Carolina judge set the bond for a man suspected of drunk driving at an astronomical $250,000. Claiming that the 34-year-old is a threat to the North Charleston, South Carolina community, the high bond ensures the man will stay behind bars, away from his two children, until his day in court arrives.

The judge also pointed to the man's poor driving record as justification for keeping him locked up and from behind the wheel of a car.

The man is being charged with allegedly causing the injury of a construction worker while operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol. The accident happened in the very early morning hours on Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

At about 3:30 a.m., the man, who was returning home from his shift at work, allegedly struck the construction worker along the roadway. Police that investigated the scene said the man drove his car into the construction zone near the entrance to a subdivision and struck the worker while he was busy laying asphalt.

Law enforcement apparently administered several sobriety tests following the accident, which authorities claim the man repeatedly failed.

In 2002, the man was arrested and convicted of DUI and was again in 2006. In South Carolina, if a suspect is convicted of DUI in the past and then convicted of felony DUI, they could face up to 15 years in prison. In this case, the man is currently innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. If convicted, the 34-year-old could face severe consequences. It is important to make a detailed and critical examination of all aspects of his arrest in order to protect his rights.
