Deputy constable charged with DWI after being found asleep at the wheel

Posted on May 10th, 2012 No Comments

A Houston deputy constable was found asleep at the wheel of his parked car on the side of the road in the 12400 block of Stonefield Manor. The off-duty officer’s son was in the car with him.

After being awoken by officers, he was taken to a nearby hospital, where blood tests showed that he was intoxicated.

Even though he was parked on the side of the road, he was charged with DWI because his motor was running. His fellow officers say that this kind of behavior is uncharacteristic for him, and his record has been described as “impeccable” by Precinct 3 Constable Ken Jones.

DWI elevated to felony with child in vehicle

Posted on July 29th, 2011 No Comments

Montgomery County officials recently arrested a mother driving with her 1-month old baby for drunk driving.

According to the Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney, “What would ordinarily be a misdemeanor crime is automatically elevated to a serious felony crime simply because a child was in the car.”

Police reports indicate that an officer found the mother sitting in her car at a traffic light on The Woodlands Parkway.  The traffic light was reported to have changed several times, but the woman’s vehicle never moved.

The mother was reportedly asked to get out of the car but could barely stand up.  Furthermore, the child was said to have not been properly restrained in the back seat.

Galveston ADA charged with DWI

Posted on January 5th, 2011 No Comments

Last month, Galveston County Assistant District Attorney Lester Blizzard was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated.  Galveston County Sheriff’s Department officers arrested the ADA on December 29th.  Blizzard was subsequently suspended without pay from his position heading the county’s felony division.

A Galveston County deputy was also arrested last month for driving while intoxicated.  Tino Ramirez has been reassigned while officers investigate the charges.  Blizzard and Ramirez were 2 of 30 people arrested in 30 hours on drunk driving charges in Galveston County.  District attorneys say that special prosecutors will be assigned to both men’s cases to avoid potential conflicts of interest.
