On Friday, police in Bryan arrested two men on suspicion of driving drunk. Although the men were arrested in separate incidents, it was the third DWI arrest for each.

In one arrest, a 29-year-old College Station man caught an officer's attention by allegedly running a red light in front of the officer. The incident happened around 4 p.m. Friday near the intersection of University Drive and Wellborn Road.

That man has now been charged with DWI with two prior convictions. It isn't clear what led authorities to believe that the man was intoxicated, but we certainly hope they did not get ahead of themselves. Such accusations should not be made without tests that confirm suspicions.

In the second arrest, police nabbed a 28-year-old Bryan mad who was allegedly idling at a green light. Officers reported that the man seemed "confused" and "bewildered" when officers confronted him. He was eventually taken to St. Joseph Hospital, where tests reportedly showed that he was under the influence of PCP.

He has also been charged with DWI with two previous convictions, as well as resisting arrest.

Authorities have not discussed either man's prior DWIs.
