Texas A&M students need to know consequences before using fake IDs

For many Texas A&M students, it can seem like getting a fake ID is something you're expected to do.

After all, it seems like everybody has them; a 2007 University of Missouri study found that 32 percent of college students polled had a fake ID by their second year, and think about how much higher that percentage would be if everyone who responded was honest.

College Station man sentenced to 30 years in prison for fourth DWI

A College Station man will spend up to 30 years in prison after being convicted of a fourth DWI. We hope this man's circumstances serve as a cautionary tale to our readers. Our criminal justice system does not take kindly to repeat DWI offenders.

The 49-year-old man has 19 prior criminal convictions and has been sentenced to prison four times previously. Not all of those incidents involved alcohol.

Bryan man, 22, charged with DWI and two counts of causing damage

A Bryan man was arrested Monday night after he allegedly caused two accidents in what police describe as a drunk driving incident. He has been charged with one count of DWI and two counts of an accident causing damage.

Legislators receive apology from representative after DWI arrest

Earlier this month, Texas State Rep. Naomi Gonzalez was arrested after allegedly driving while intoxicated. According to the police report, the arrest took place after Gonzalez was involved in an accident with another vehicle. The police reports that Gonzalez not only failed the field sobriety test but the breathalyzer test as well and was charged with a DWI.

But despite the negative press that has been swirling around the recently-elected state representative, there is no doubting that the circumstances surrounding the incident have affected Gonzalez in a deep, regretful way.

With fourth DWI charge, Bryan man faces 10 years in prison

A 32-year-old Bryan man was pulled over Saturday night because police thought his registration had expired. But that expired registration quickly became the least of the man's worries.

According to a police report filed after the incident, an officer pulled the man over shortly after midnight, apparently because he could tell from the man's license plate that his registration was not up to date. As he spoke to the man through the window, the officer said he could smell a powerful odor of alcohol and could see an open bottle of vodka in the backseat of the vehicle.
