A member of the Texas House of Representatives has been arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated this week. State Rep. Victoria Neave, a Democrat from Dallas, was arrested on Tuesday night following a single-car accident. Incidentally, Rep. Neave is a DFW-area DWI attorney herself.
According to NBC5 DFW:
“Freshman Texas State Rep. Victoria Neave (D-Dallas) told police ‘I love you and I will fight for you’ as she was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated following a single-vehicle crash in Dallas Tuesday night.
“Dallas police said Neave, 36, drove her BMW into a tree near the intersection of Abrams Parkway and La Vista Drive at about 11:30 p.m.”
Anyone charged with driving while intoxicated in Texas needs to consult with a criminal defense attorney. It is important to act quickly because you only have 15 days following a breathalyzer refusal of failure to request an ALR hearing to prevent suspension of your driver’s license. It is often not possible to prevent license suspension, but the ALR hearing is an important tool for looking at the state’s evidence against you and gives your attorney a chance to nail down the police officer’s version of events. So if you are charged with driving while intoxicated in Tarrant or any surrounding counties, call Blake & Blake LLP.
