NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A convicted drunk driver who killed three people in a horrific crash in 1993 has been charged with DUI again.

Danny Ross, 38, was arrested for his fourth DUI last week after crashing his car on Gallatin Road.  Police said he had an open bottle of liquor sitting beside him.

The father of one of his victims says he should have never been out of prison in the first place.

Larry Scheib's daughter, Keri, was only 15 when she was killed nearly 20 years ago.

Last week, he got a call from the district attorney's office through the victim notification program letting him know about the latest DUI charge.

"They said that our guy has done it again," Scheib told Nashville's News 2.

Scheib wasn't surprised.

"We knew it would happen.  We just didn't know when it would be," he said.

Scheib believes Ross should have gotten more time for his last DUI's, but in Tennessee a DUI conviction that's more than 10 years old doesn't count any more when someone is sentenced on a new DUI.

"For me, with Danny Ross, that means my daughter's life didn't mean anything after 10 years," said Scheib.

The Donelson father says he will fight for tougher laws to keep Ross from driving another deadly time.

"You worry about it everyday. What he's doing.  It's just a matter of time before it happens," said Scheib.

Ross is free on bond.  His next court appearance is December 5.
