Dallas State Rep. Victoria Neave Arrested for DWI

Dallas police arrested state Rep. Victoria Neave early Wednesday morning for driving while intoxicated. Neave, whom the Texas House Democratic Caucus recently named "freshman of the year," remains in Dallas County Jail waiting to see a judge so she can be released on bail, according to county records.

Neave, whom the Observer named one of North Texas' best legislators this session, represents House District 107, which includes much of East Dallas, as well as portions of Garland and Mesquite.
