The Hilton Head Island man accused of driving drunk and fleeing the scene when a Hilton Head bicyclist was killed on the Cross Island Parkway in August has been charged again for DUI.
Richard Alford, 64, was charged with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in a death in relation to the death of Jeff Garske, who died on Aug. 18 while riding his bicycle on the Cross Island Parkway.
Alford was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center and later released on bail after his bond was set at $50,000.
In a Thursday filing, 14th Circuit Solicitor Duffie Stone notified Alford’s attorney, named in the filing as Charles Mike Macloskie, he intended to ask a judge to revoke Alford’s bond.
