Accused Drunk Driver Ordered to Wear SCRAM Bracelet

Quintin Wissmiller, 33, of rural Yorkville, allegedly drove drunk in an ATV crash that injured him and killed a Shetland pony.

The 33-year-old Yorkville-area man that injured him and killed a Shetland pony is required to wear a SCRAM bracelet as a condition of his bond, Kendall County court records show.

Quintin Wissmiller, of the 11500 block of Brisbin Road, was charged with multiple counts of aggravated driving under the influence and driving on a revoked license. The more serious charges are Class 2 felonies.

He allegedly was intoxicated about 3 a.m. June 17 when he drove a Polaris Ranger ATV in the roadway and struck a Shetland pony, sheriff's police said. The pony, named Dory, had escaped from its corral and was standing on Brisbin Road near Helmar Road, sheriff's police said. The pony had to be put down due to its injuries.

As a condition of his bail, Wissmiller was ordered not to consume any alcohol and to wear a SCRAM bracelet. SCRAM bracelets, or Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring bracelets, are designed to detect alcohol in sweat, according to FindLaw.com.

A judge denied his request to travel to Mexico on vacation. Wissmiller's case is next due in court Oct. 9.
