Cibolo, TX – A Cibolo city councilman was arrested over the weekend after police said he crashed his vehicle into a ditch and then failed a field sobriety test.

Councilman Reggie Bone, 48, was arrested Sunday morning following a single-vehicle crash near the intersection of Fazio Drive and Carnousty Drive in Cibolo, according to a blood-draw warrant obtained by the KSAT 12 Defenders Monday afternoon.

Bone was found by Cibolo police around 1:45 a.m. standing near the vehicle in a large drainage ditch. He told responding officers he was driving home from a party and had consumed three beers, the warrant states.

Bone had difficulty walking up the hill to officers and then failed a field sobriety test, the warrant states.

After an officer told Bone that he believed he was intoxicated Bone replied, “I believe that,” records show.

After Bone refused to provide a specimen of his breath, officers got a Guadalupe County magistrate to sign off on a warrant for blood draw.

Bone faces a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated. Guadalupe County Jail records show he was released Sunday on a $3,000 bond.

Cibolo Police said via email Monday morning they were working to provide details on the councilman’s arrest.

In a statement sent Monday afternoon, Bone apologized for his actions.

“Each of you in our community places an enormous amount of trust and faith in our City Leaders,” according to the statement. “As a father, and a leader in our community, I understand how sacred trust is and how easily it can be lost. Not only did I fail myself, but I failed my family and my community with my lack of good judgment.”

“Looking ahead, I promise that I will work every day to restore the trust I have lost, repair any harm I have caused, and continue to help the people of our wonderful community,” Bone’s statement continued.

Bone represents Cibolo City Council District 3. His current term expires in November 2022.
