PLEASE PUT THE DRUNK DRIVERS IN JAIL

What’s with the Drunk Drivers? How many DWI’s and alcohol related charges can people get without paying the fiddler? Looks like a whole lot.

When did DWI’s become okay?

Who gets their keys taken away right away and who doesn’t? Who STOPS driving right away and who doesn’t? Where are the ankle monitors?

A Waco woman who was arrested on two drunken driving charges in less than a week in April was indicted Thursday on two counts of felony driving while intoxicated.

A McLennan County grand jury indicted Jacqueline Ann Morris, a 60-year-old housekeeper, on the third-degree felony counts after her DWI arrests April 17 in Hewitt and April 22 in Robinson.

Records show Morris has five DWI convictions since 1994 plus an intoxication assault conviction in 2007 in which she was driving impaired and someone was injured. She was placed on probation in each of her previous convictions, and records show there is a motion pending to revoke her felony probation in Bosque County.

Defendants can be charged with felony DWI after at least two convictions for misdemeanor DWI. Morris has felony DWI convictions in 2015 and 2008.

Her attorney, Kyle King, declined comment Thursday on the new indictment because the matters are pending.

According to arrest affidavits, Hewitt officers were called to the Walmart at 733 Sun Valley Blvd. after Morris reportedly struck another vehicle with her Ford pickup truck about 5 p.m. April 17 and appeared to be “unconscious in the driver’s seat.”

  • An officer woke Morris up and reported she said she was unaware she hit another vehicle, according to the affidavit. The officer said he saw four small bottles of wine in the passenger’s seat of the truck. One was full, two were empty and one was open and inside a purse, the affidavit states. Morris told the officer she drank the wine the night before.

Morris told the officer she drank the wine the night before.

The officer took Morris to a local hospital “for medical clearance” before taking her to jail. Morris refused to allow her blood to be drawn at the hospital, so the officer got a search warrant for a blood sample. The affidavit does not indicate her blood-alcohol content. Five days later, Robinson police responded to a traffic incident about 11 a.m. near Greig and Coahula drives where Morris’ truck left the roadway, rolled across a drainage culvert, drove through three fences and struck a telephone pole a quarter-mile from the road.

The officer reported Morris was sitting on the tailgate when he arrived and appeared “confused.” He said she gave conflicting stories about how the incident occurred, including she was run off the road by a passing motorist, that there was a vehicle in the middle of the road and that she lost control while lighting a cigarette.

Morris was not injured, the officer reported. He asked her to perform exercises associated with a field sobriety test and she said, “I can’t do those tests sober,” according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

The officer reported he found four bottles of wine in a trash can with cleaning supplies and hand towels covering them.

If convicted, Morris faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.

  1. Well, she will get locked up for sure but Mssss. Whitney whatever, is still throwing the PTSD , I’m a special kind of drunk Christian , defense around. And still walking the streets! I’d sue the crap outta someone .. different rules apply again !! Right.. this pisses me off

    • Since Parnell took a complaint of harassment against me to the DA in October 2020, it’s clear that our Sheriff and his little girlfriend are still buds. Obviously, they are still seeing one another get real here. After this October 2020 bullshit, she gets another DWI on December 28th. 2020, then April 4th. 2021. IF he is angry with anyone he ought to be angry with his little misbehaving girlfriend. He is in so deep and spends so much money, it’s unreal. Look for him to have the old Smacnamara house redone by the Gaines on tv. Betcha.

  2. There’s another 8-9 DWI, Waco blonde who might be her new bunk mate soon. Bernie, will you be our court reporter for that?

    • Sure but they never make it to court. I’d make it to court, you too but the special folks, oh, hell no. When caught our powerful elected officials just double down too. It’s really amazing.
