Authorities have filed new charges against the 17-year-old Dawsonville boy accused of causing a fatal wreck that killed a fellow teenager early this month in Forsyth County.

Adam Robert Joseph Di Millo had previously been charged with D.U.I., underage possession/consumption of alcohol, and 1st degree homicide by vehicle in connection with the June 1 accident that killed 17-year-old Paul Louis Castell Jr.

Di Millo was re-arrested on Monday on additional charges of reckless driving, driving too fast for conditions, failure to maintain lane, seatbelt violation and two counts of violation of Class D license restrictions.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that he was released from the Forsyth County jail Monday after posting a $4,180 bond.

Investigators say that shortly after leaving a party, Di Millo lost control of his Dodge Ram pickup truck carrying five teenagers on Kelly Mill Road at Rockingham Run. The vehicle hit a telephone pole, ejecting Castell Jr., a rising senior at North Forsyth High who died on scene as a result of his injuries. Di Millo and three other passengers suffered for non-life threatening injuries.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office investigators made a second arrest in the days after the accident, charging Jeremiah Luke Funke, who allegedly hosted the party, with possession of marijuana less than an ounce, possession / consumption of alcohol by a minor, and maintaining a disorderly house.
