— A man accused of colliding with a Walworth County sheriff’s deputy in a drunken-driving crash earlier this month was arrested again Thursday on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Kevin W. Horvath, 28, Lake Geneva, was free on bond stemming from an Aug. 11 wreck in which he is suspected of driving the wrong way down Highway 12 and colliding with a deputy, Walworth County Sheriff’s Capt. Scott McClory said in a news release.


A judge ordered Horvath not to drink alcohol and released him on a $2,000 signature bond after the crash, McClory said.


On Thursday, Horvath was stopped at 5:35 a.m. on Highway 12 in Lyons Township, McClory said, and he was asked to undergo field sobriety tests.


Horvath was arrested on suspicion drunken driving, McClory said.


Horvath also was cited for open intoxicants in a vehicle and possession of marijuana, McClory said.


In the Aug. 11 crash, Horvath faces charges of misdemeanor endangering safety by reckless driving and misdemeanor causing injury by operating while intoxicated.


He now faces possible additional charges of misdemeanor drunken driving and misdemeanor bail jumping stemming from the Thursday traffic stop.


Horvath remained in the Walworth County Jail this morning. He’s scheduled to be in court Monday, Sept. 8.
