Weekend DWI Arrests Of Drivers With Prior Convictions

It was so dark during Friday night’s severe thunderstorm that a Bryan police officer could not see a colleague directing traffic at Texas and William Joel Bryan. That led the officers to get in their vehicles and activate their flashing lights. About ten minutes later, they saw a car drive through the intersection without stopping. That led to the officers stopping the car and later arresting the driver for DWI with five prior convictions. According to the arrest report, 40 year old Jimmy Serna of Bryan has two prior convictions in Robertson County, two in Falls County, and one from Bastrop County. He was released from the Brazos County jail after posting a $15,000 dollar bond.

A Palestine man was released from the Brazos County jail after posting a $100,000 dollar bond the day after his arrest for driving while intoxicated with two prior convictions. Bryan police arrested 20 year old Alonso Morales Jr. following a call from a resident that he was asleep in a truck that was blocking her driveway that is located near the west side Walmart. According to the arrest report, Morales said he was in east Bryan. Family members told officers Morales had been at a family party and did not know where he was in his father’s truck until they located the truck on a phone app. Family members also said that sometimes they hide the keys to their vehicles because Morales has an interlock device on his vehicle to detect alcohol. According to the arrest report, both of Morales’s prior DWI convictions are from Anderson County.
