The 24-year-old man facing almost 20 years in prison for allegedly killing his brother in a drunk driving accident who was out on bond is back behind bars after failing an alcohol breath test.

David Parr, of Mount Pleasant, is accused of killing his brother last fall when he failed to yield to oncoming traffic at the intersection of 16th Street and Highway 31. Parr was out of jail after his attorney successfully argued for a modified bond – $5,000 instead of $75,000 – so Parr could attend his brother’s funeral.

Conditions of his bond included not possessing or consuming any alcohol and to submit to both random breath tests as well as to tests after each court date.

Parr is back in the Racine County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond because on July 18 he failed an alcohol breath test after a court date to request moving in with his grandparents. The move was approved, and online court records indicate Parr’s original SCRAM unit was suspended and replaced with breath tests.

Results from his July 18 breath test came back at .021 and a repeat test 15 minutes later came up with .013 blood alcohol level.

He is charged with felony bail jumping, which is punishable by a six years in prison and/or up to $10,000 in fines.

In addition to the $10,000 cash bond imposed on the bail jumping charge, Parr has a $15,000 cash bond for the charges related to the death of his brother.

If Parr makes bail this time, he is ordered to pay $208 for a new SCRAM unit, which attaches around the ankle to constantly monitor alcohol consumption. He will next be in court on Sept. 14 for both cases.
