Bexar County Commissioner Kevin Wolff has apologized for his actions on Sunday morning.  He was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated around 3 a.m. at a Whataburger restaurant.

In a prepared statement he read today, Wolff said he “screwed up.”

"At my home on Saturday night I made the stupid decision to mix alcohol, high blood pressure, anti-anxiety medications as well as the prescription sleeping pill Ambien. I had no intention of leaving my house on Saturday night. I was at home with my family and I have no memory of leaving the house."

Wolff was wearing boxer shorts and had no shoes on at the time of his arrest.

"I will be filing a plea of no contest and will let the normal judicial system take its course and will take any steps necessary to ensure that this never happens again," he said.

Wolff says he has no intentions of resigning is position on commissioners court.  He doesn’t think it will impede his ability to do his job.
