DUI arrest altercation results in broken police car window

Forty-nine-year-old Lisa Marie Jones was charged with driving under the influence in Dallas and received additional charges when her arrest turned into a struggle, the Rome News-Tribune reported on March 20.

Police pulled Jones over initially for speeding–she was driving 54 mph in a 35 mph zone. Once they did so, they administered a field sobriety test, which she failed. When they tried to arrest her, Jones put up a struggle and ended up kicking out the window of one of the police vehicles. As a result, Jones was not only charged with a DWI, but also obstruction of law enforcement and a felony charge of destruction of government property.

Dallas assistant DA suspended after DWI arrest

Members of the Dallas Police Department took 28-year-old DeSoto, Texas resident and Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Justin Moore into custody and charged him with driving while intoxicated on January 4, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

The police said they saw Moore swerving through traffic, tailgating, and almost colliding with another vehicle as he was driving along Highway 67 near Loop 12. According to Dallas District Attorney Susan Hawk, the District Attorney’s Office has decided to suspend Moore without pay “until we can review the facts surrounding his arrest and make any further decisions.”

Moore has been serving in the county office since July of last year and graduated with a law degree from the Southern Methodist University.
