Nancy Kerrigan is a two-time American Olympic figure medalist and 1993 U.S champion.
Nancy Kerrigan's brother Mark Kerrigan heads back to jail after reportedly failing multiple alcohol tests.According to AP, the former Olympic skater Kerrigan's brother headed back to jail last Monday (2.14.11) after he violated the terms of his bail.
Mark had been out on bail as he awaits trial for manslaughter charges in relation to his father's death. After failing four breath tests on Saturday, Kerrigan was found to be in violation of his $25,000 bail. Although the results were below the legal driving limit, his conditions did not allow for any alcohol to be detected and he returned to prison. Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Keeley said during a hearing in Massachusetts, "It's a very serious violation in light of this case and the circumstances". Kerrigan's lawyer Janice Bassil said she hoped that tests will prove that cough syrup was the reason for the alcohol reading, telling the judge that she will attempt to retrieve the medicine bottle from Kerrigan's home.
Kerrigan's father Daniel died after a physical argument with his son in January 2010. Nancy Kerrigan and their family have since supported Mark, insisting that he is not guilty of his father's death.
