Local teacher and coach arrested on DUI suspicion

Being accused of a crime can often have personal and professional consequences as well as legal ones. Recently, a teacher and volleyball coach was arrested on DUI charges by a Texas State Trooper. The situation has resulted not only in a police investigation, but also an investigation from her employer, a local school.

The incident occurred after authorities and first responders arrived at a crash on U.S. Highway 87. According to those involved, a pickup traveling south had spun out after being hit on its right rear tire. According to a report, the pickup had not yielded right of way at a yield sign. 

After the police arrived, a woman in the pickup claimed that someone else was driving the vehicle and had fled the scene. However, after failing to identify the driver or get confirmation from witnesses of an additional individual, she was arrested as the presumed driver. The woman was in the passenger seat when speaking to police, though they did not see signs of another person having been in the vehicle. The women was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The woman has not told police that she was the one driving the car. She also did not allow the hospital to take a blood specimen, though she did receive medical treatment following the crash. She also told police she was concerned about the impact the incident would have on her job as a teacher and coach at a Texas school. Those who are facing DUI charges can understand the evidence they are facing and their possible defense options by working with a Texas lawyer.
