The Georgia man that was arrested for DUI in the car crash that killed his new bride mere hours after they said their “I do's” has again been arrested and charged with driving under the influence, or DUI.
Ryan Quinton was arrested Saturday in Pickens County for DUI after he was pulled over for failure to maintain lane and not stopping at a stop sign. Testing concluded that Quinton had a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .158; almost twice the “legal limit” in Georgia.
He is currently on bond from Cherokee County for a vehicular homicide charge. In December 2013, Quinton and his new bride Kali were leaving their reception when Quinton lost control of his car and it subsequently rolled down an embankment.
Kali Quinton was trapped under the vehicle and died at the scene. Quinton at first told the cops that he had swerved to miss hitting a dog that was on the roadway. He was later charged with vehicular homicide and DUI, among other charges, and was taken to the Cherokee County Jail. He was later released from custody on a $25,000 bond.
As a result of the new DUI arrest, his bond for the Vehicular Homicide case has been revoked. He will remain in custody pending trial.
