The York County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday moved to revoke David Labonte's bail, saying a family member posted it, in violation of a judge's order.

BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) _ A Maine man charged with manslaughter for allegedly driving drunk into a family of bicyclists in Biddeford has been sent back to jail after a judge revoked his bail.

Fifty-six-year-old David Labonte has been free on $100,000 bail after being charged in the death of 52-year-old Jamerico Elliott of Biddeford. Elliott died Aug. 7, five days after Labonte's truck struck him, Melodie Brennan and their 15-month old son, who was in a bike seat with his dad.

The Portland Press Herald says the York County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday moved to revoke Labonte's bail, saying a family member posted it in violation of a judge's order that the bail couldn't be paid by a third party.

A judge agreed with prosecutors, sending Labonte back to jail.
