State Rep. Eddie Rodriguez, D-Austin, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated Thursday night, he said today.
Rodriguez sent the Statesman this written statement:“As an elected official, I want to be as open and up-front as possible to the public. Regrettably, on Thursday, March 18, I was charged with DWI. While the legal process runs its course, I will continue to serve my district in the same diligent and responsive manner that I have served since I was first elected in 2002.”
A spokeswoman for Rodriguez said that he was arrested at about 11:15 p.m., spent Thursday night in jail in Travis County and was released Friday morning on a personal recognizance bond. The spokeswoman declined to say where Rodriguez had been Thursday night and said that he had no further comment.
