Vehicular Homicide Suspect Jailed Again

DES MOINES, Iowa — A Des Moines man awaiting trial for the death of a motorcyclist was arrested again over the weekend.

Jacob Phipps is scheduled to go on trial on July 28th to face a charge of vehicular homicide. He’s accused of hitting motorcyclist Michael Harden on March 29th. Officials say he was drunk at the time of the crash.

Harden died ten days later.

Phipps was free on bond leading up to the trial, but the 21-year old is back in the Polk County Jail after a weekend arrest for child endangerment, harassment, and public intoxication.
