A Magnolia man is behind bars, after Montgomery County deputies say he hit a Pct. 4 Constable car while driving drunk.
Court records state that Jacob Tyler Sweeten, 20, was traveling at a high rate of speed on Crocket-Martin Road, in East Montgomery County, Sept. 30. Deputy Skero, with the Constable’s Office, was conducting a traffic stop on the side of the road, near a railroad crossing.
After flying over the railroad tracks, Sweeten then slammed into the back of the deputy’s patrol car, according to deputies.
Sweeten was suspected by police of being under the influence and was arrested. He refused a breath test, however deputies obtained a search warrant for a mandatory blood draw. He was booked into jail on charges of Driving While Intoxicated.
According to a report from the Montgomery County Police Reporter, Sweeten is a senior at The Woodlands High School and was arrested last May for the same offense, but charges were dismissed.
