A Bryan man’s third arrest since Memorial Day weekend is for drunk driving that resulted in knocking out the traffic signals most of Wednesday at Wellborn Road and Harvey Mitchell Parkway. A witness told College Station police they saw a vehicle driving down the center grass median during the midnight hour Wednesday before striking the signal. A second witness reported seeing the driver throw out a can of beer. According to online records, 26 year old Gabriel Gonzalez was arrested on two weeks ago and on May 24th for driving with an invalid license. Gonzalez remained in the Brazos County jail as of Friday morning. Repairs to the traffic signals took 16 hours, causing backups during the morning and afternoon commutes. City of College Station traffic engineering staff told police stop signs were in place between Wednesday between 2 a.m. and 4 p.m. Since then, temporary signals have been in place. It will take between 10 and 20 weeks until the items are received in order to install the permanent replacement signals.
