Thomas Andrew Gatlin, the assistant felony prosecutor for Dallas County, was arrested on suspicion of Texas DWI. Gatlin, 43, hit a house around 7:00 pm Saturday evening, and then continued trying to drive forward.
Witnesses had to break a window with a hammer and shift the car into park. They then turned off the vehicle.
Dallas Police said that Gatlin refused to answer questions. He reportedly had bloodshot eyes and had difficulty walking. An open bottle of vodka was found inside the vehicle.
Gatlin was booked on driving while intoxicated in Dallas, Texas. He posted a $500 bond and was released early Sunday.
