State Representative Dan Huberty (R-Houston) was arrested Friday night for driving while intoxicated after officers arrived to the scene of an accident in Montgomery County.

According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter, Huberty failed to stop at a red light and rear-ended an SUV in front of him. During the impact, Huberty’s corvette had run up under the other vehicle. The other car’s passengers sustained minor injuries but did not request transport to the hospital. Huberty was uninjured.

Officers conducted a field sobriety test which Huberty failed. He was then arrested and booked in the county jail and then bonded out early Saturday morning on $1,500 bond.

Huberty confirmed the news in a Facebook post, stating, “Last night I was driving under the influence of alcohol and involved in a minor automobile accident in Montgomery County. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured. I regret my actions and apologize to my constituents and my family.”

“I know I have a problem and this incident serves as wake-up call for me. I am seeking treatment options to begin today.”
