Over Sunday night and Monday morning, four people were arrested on suspicion of driving drunk in the Bryan and College Station area.

One, a 26-year-old Bryan man, has been charged with felony DWI. If he is found guilty, he could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison and be ordered to pay a fine of as much as $10,000. He was charged with a felony, rather than a misdemeanor, because he has three prior DUI convictions, one in 2009 and two in 2012.

Another, a 38-year-old Bryan woman, was arrested around 2 a.m. Monday. When she is charged, it will be her second time being charged with DWI.

The third person was a 31-year-old man from College Station. He is likely to be charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct by language and displaying an expired inspection, in addition to the DWI charge. Officers claim he resisted arrest and displayed extreme disrespect during his apprehension. While we support the right of people to express themselves and their feelings, we also feel it should be noted that such behavior is unlikely to help anyone's case at all.

The final person arrested over the weekend was a 46-year-old Bryan woman. She was arrested in connection with an alleged drunk-driving incident in May.
