David Cruz, a reporter who had been pulled off the anchor desk back in February at WOAI-4, was arrested early Friday morning by San Antonio police on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
After failing a sobriety test, David was taken to the Municipal Court where he refused to take a breathalyzer test and passed out in a bathroom, according to the police report.
The story was posted on the KSAT-12 News Web site. WOAI also posted a brief, announcing David resigned from his job. In a statement he said: “I wish to apologize to the viewers of San Antonio for my poor judgement which led to this incident of which I am personally ashamed and will not try to defend. It was irresponsible and inexcusable on my part and for this I am truly sorry. Since I have not upheld the trust viewers have placed in me, I have decided to resign my position at WOAI effective immediately.”
Albany Lawyer says
I see so many people brought down by DWI offenses. It seems like for public figures it’s much harder. A good DWI lawyer might be able to challenge a case under those circumstances (and I’m nowhere near so I can’t help), but for public figures it seems more important to get it over with and maybe they can get back on their feet once it’s resolved.
