Documents show he violated three conditions of his pretrial release, including testing positive for the active agent in marijuana.

He pleaded not guilty to multiple charges, including intoxication manslaughter and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury.

He's accused of causing the March 29, 2017, crash on two-lane U.S. 83 west of San Antonio.

Senior citizens from First Baptist Church New Braunfels were on their way back from a retreat.
