Austin Bars with most DWI arrests 2011

Posted by Brian Tillman on May 07, 2012

I got a phone call from an out-of-Stater last week about our old blog post- the Austin Bar DWI  list from 2010.  While talking, I realized that we had neglected to post (or see, lol) the list from 2011.  Not that there's that much difference, but we do have an appearance from Antone's as well as the Yellow Rose.  As before, it has more to do with the area and time you're driving than any other factor.  If you're driving home from happy hour at the Dog & Duck Pub at 5 p.m., you're a lot less likely to get arrested than leaving Oilcan's at 3 a.m.  Here's the top 20 Austin DWI arrest bars for 2011, according to Fox Austin

Different Standards for Austin DWI Suspects?

Posted by Brian Tillman on June 21, 2011

I'm sad that the Statesman beat me to the punch, but glad to see I wasn't the only one annoyed by the Austin Police Chief's involvement in the dismissal of radio host Jeff Ward's DWI.  According to a Statesman article last night, it looks like now the Austin Police Union is a bit irritated as well.  Let's review:  high profile radio host is stopped for DWI, but he knows Chief Acevedo, who is a frequent guest on his show.  Host has his fiancee call the Chief on cell phone from the scene of the stop, and then the Chief accepts a call from him at the jail.  Chief reviews Ward's case with police brass, then personally calls the County Attorney's office to point out problems with the case.  Ward was arrested Thursday night, and County Attorney declines to prosecute the case by Monday morning.  Case closed.

Austin Radio Host has unique DWI arrest

Posted by Brian Tillman on June 16, 2011

Recently in Austin, a local radio personality was stopped for speeding and subsequently arrested for DWI.  Jeff Ward was pulled over Thursday evening after emceeing an event at the downtown Austin Hilton.  He admitted to having one beer at the event, and was asked to perform a Field Sobriety Test to determine if he was driving while intoxicated.  After performing the tests, he was asked to take a DWI breath test, which he refused (these Austin criminal defense lawyers advise you to do the same).  Based on the officer's observations and judgment, the Austin Police Officer arrested Mr. Ward for DWI and took him to jail.  Again, this is Thursday evening.
