A 64-year old Brenham man was arrested on a felony driving while intoxicated charge, Tuesday afternoon, when a witness reported to police they saw him consuming an alcoholic drink while driving in the downtown area.
Brenham police officer Heather Sowders began following the driver of a blue Chevy Suburban on Commerce Street at about 3:30pm. Police reports say he was taking what appeared to be evasive actions, making several turns before finally stopping West Jefferson and Wilkins Street.
Officer Sowders had Willie Bimage take a field sobriety test and he failed. He was then arrested for a third offense driving while intoxicated, a felony.
