Richard Alford

HILTON HEAD, S.C. – The man accused of killing a bicyclist on Cross Island Parkway in a hit and run crash, was arrested again for DUI while out on bond, according to Beaufort County officials.

64-year-old Richard Alford was arrested on August 19th for leaving the scene of the accident where 66-year-old Jeffrey Garske died. Garske, an orthopedic surgeon and Boston Marathon bombing survivor, was riding his bike on the right shoulder of the Parkway near Marshland road.

Alford was released on a $50,000 dollar bond.

Around 5pm Wednesday, Alford was arrested again for Driving Under the Influence and Open Container after the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office received reports of a vehicle swerving on U.S. 278.

The 14th Judicial Circuit sent in a motion to revoke Alford’s bond.
