Commissioner arrested in July 2016 for DWI

By Chris Shadrock - Web - News Producer

SAN ANTONIO - The Defenders obtained the dashcam video Thursday afternoon of the July 2016 arrest of Bexar County Commissioner Kevin Wolff. 

Wolff entered a no contest plea Wednesday and was sentenced to one year probation.

In the video, captured on a San Antonio police dashcam, Wolff can be seen stumbling while trying to walk in a straight line. He later can be seen falling over, while trying to balance on one leg. 

The arresting officer ended the field sobriety test moments later, saying he did not want the commissioner to get hurt.

The officer repeatedly asks Wolff where his clothes and shoes are. Later in the video a family member is seen bringing him clothes and shoes.

Wolff was initially charged with driving while intoxicated with a blood-alcohol content greater than 0.15 percent. He accepted a plea deal that reduced the charge to just DWI.

After his arrest, Wolff said he "screwed up" and said “I’m not proud of what I’ve done and I make no excuses.”

Wolff was arrested after he collided with two cars at a Whataburger restaurant in the predawn hours of July 31.

“I’m disappointed in myself and I want to express my sincere apologies to my wife, my daughter, my colleagues on Commissioners Court and my constituents,” Wolff said after his arrest.
