A couple of Navasota men got in trouble behind the wheel in Brazos County recently.
28-year-old Sergio Garcia was arrested on Highway 6 just north of Rock Prairie Road Sunday morning, June 3rd, after a driver alerted a Brazos County Deputy that the some of the gravel Garcia was hauling on a trailer behind his F-350 was flying off, and had broken his windshield.
When Brazos County Deputy Patrick Montoya pulled Garcia over, he discovered that not only had his license been suspended, but he had multiple convictions for driving while it was invalid.
Garcia was peacefully booked into the Brazos County Detention Center for driving while his license was invalid with previous convictions. He bonded out later that day on a $3,000 bail.
Then the next evening, Edgar Diosdado found an interesting way to spend his 24th birthday on the 4th, by crashing his Chevy Sedan into a partly filled drainage ditch on Highway 6 near the Westward Ho.
Diosdado reportedly admitted to responding Trooper William Kettler that he’d been drinking beer at the Grand Station to celebrate and had fallen asleep at the wheel afterwards because he’d worked all day. Kettler reports he smelled alcohol on Diosdado’s breath and saw vomit on the front of his shirt and pants.
After arresting Diosdado, Trooper Kettler first transported him to the South College Station St. Jo E.R. where a voluntary blood sample was drawn, then on to the Brazos County Jail where Diosdado was booked for driving while intoxiCated and then also bonded out the same day on another $3000 bail.
