One Vehicle Accident Leads to Arrest of Driver for DWI

Officers said when they arrived on the scene the driver admitted to being intoxicated. The vehicle collided with a power pole. The driver Isaak Vargas told officers he was intoxicated and refused a field sobriety test. He was placed under arrest and taken to the Hockley County Jail.

Once at the Law Enforcement Center, a certified intoxilyzer officer administered a breath analysis. After successfully completing two tests, he had a blood alcohol level of .185 on the first test and .188 on the second test which is above the legal limit of .08.
