Bexar County Commissioner Kevin Wolff Arrested For DWI

Bexar County Precinct 3 Commissioner Kevin Wolff was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) after rear-ending two cars at the drive-through of a Whataburger restaurant early Sunday morning, according to San Antonio Police.

Information released by SAPD to media says SAPD's North Patrol was called to the restaurant at San Pedro and East Ramsey before 3:00 a.m. A witness pointed-out Wolff and his vehicle which had sustained front end damage. The report says officers approached Wolff and suspected he might be intoxicated.

Police say Wolff failed a field sobriety test. He was arrested and taken to the Bexar County Magistrate’s office.  Police say he refused to take a breath test and a warrant for taking a blood sample was obtained. Wolf was charged with DWI though as of noon Sunday information about the level of alcohol in his blood was not available. Police say he was released from custody Sunday morning.

Kevin Wolff is the lone Republican on the Bexar County Commissioners Court. He is the son of Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff.  Kevin Wolff  won his Commissioners Court seat in 2008 after serving as a member of the San Antonio City Council.  He faces a Democratic opponent in his November bid for reelection.  

Precinct 3 encompasses most of Northern Bexar County and neighborhoods in Northern San Antonio, Castle Hills, Shavano Park, Hill Country Village, Hollywood Park and Stone Oak, and other nearby communities.

Commissioner Wolff has not yet responded to Texas Public Radio's efforts to reach him.  This is a developing story and will be updated.
