Another DWI Case: DPS Official Held
Austin has had another high-profile DWI arrest.
Texas Department of Public Safety official Richard Hooks was arrested early this morning and booked into the Travis County Jail.
Hooks is the Capital-area regional coordinator for the Texas Division of Emergency Management.
Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg is serving a 45-day sentence after pleading guilty to a DWI charge last month.
In March, state Rep. Naomi Gonzalez was arrested for DWI after a collision.
