DALLAS (KXAN) —  Police in Dallas have arrested a Texas state representative for driving while intoxicated early Wednesday morning.

According to KXAS, 36-year-old Victoria Neave was booked into the Dallas County Jail at 3:38 a.m.

Neave, a Democrat, represents District 107, which includes eastern portions of Dallas, Mesquite and Garland. She was in the news in April for taking part in a hunger strike to protest Senate Bill 4, recently signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott.

In a statement, Neave said her actions disappointed her family, constituents, supporters and herself. “I am deeply sorry. I am so grateful that no one was hurt. I will accept the consequences of my actions and will work to make this right.”
