Teen in DWI death arrested again

RALEIGH Christopher John Palmeri, 19, is accused of taking three cases of Bud Light from a Harris Teeter store. He's charged with misdemeanor larceny, second-degree trespassing and possession of alcohol while under age 21.

Prosecutors say Palmeri was 18, under the influence of alcohol, and going 72-miles per hour in a 35-mile per hour zone when he lost control on Wakefield Plantation Drive in January 2007.

The crash killed Sadiki Young, a Wakefield High School student. Young was 18.

After pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, a Wake County judge sentenced Palmeri to five-months in jail and 300-hours community service which included speaking to children about DWI.

Palmeri was released from jail Tuesday on a $1,000 bond.
