NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A man charged last month with his fourth DUI will remain out of jail on bond but must wear an alcohol monitoring device, a judge ruled Friday morning.

The judge told Jeremy Church if he even takes a sip of alcohol, the monitor will light up and he will be thrown in jail until his charges are settled.

The device Church must wear is called a SCRAM device and will be worn around his ankle.

SCRAM devices take samples of perspiration every 30 minutes to monitor and report blood alcohol levels.

Church has also entered an extensive outpatient program at Cumberland Heights drug and alcohol rehab center, his attorney said.

His license has not been revoked.

The 31-year-old Church was stopped on Elliston Place on November 26 after an officer spotted him driving down the center turn lane without making a turn.

During the traffic stop, Church refused to get out of the car and instead asked if he could sleep in the backseat.

Church is next due in court January 9.
