According to the police report, Leary was driving erratically and committing multiple traffic violations when stopped near Riverside and O’Connor. The arresting officer claimed Leary had bloodshot eyes, slurred his speech and smelled of alcohol.

He subsequently failed a field sobriety test. He was asked to give a blood sample, which he willingly gave.

“In the state of Texas, unless you are double the alcohol level in your blood system or you have caused an injury, or you had a child in your car, your first two offenses being convicted of — they are not felony offenses, they are misdemeanors,” said MADD’s North Texas executive director Jeff Miracle.
