Café Eccel Co-Owner Arrested For DWI, 2nd Arrest In Two Months

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION – The co-owner of Café Eccel is back in trouble with the law. College Station Police arrested Andreas Dallis Saturday night on a DWI Charge.

According to the probable cause statement, an officer on patrol spotted Dallis veer into oncoming traffic and hit a van. Police say Dallis was headed south on Wellborn Road. As he approached George Bush Drive, police say Dallis veered left. His Toyota 4Runner hit the front of a van sitting in the northbound turn lane, waiting to turn left onto George Bush.

The officer says as he approached the crash, he noticed Dallis’ eyes were glassy and bloodshot. He says Dallis stumbled as he got out of his SUV and then refused to take a field sobriety test.

The probable cause statement says Dallas was convicted of DWI in 2003.

This is the second time Dallis has been arrested this year. Police arrested him March 1 on a hit and run charge. They say surveillance video shows Dallis hit a car in the Taco Bell parking lot on February 5th and took off. When police went to Dallis’ house to investigate, they say he had glassy eyes and his speech was slurred. But Dallis refused to cooperate.

Dallis and his brother own Café Eccel. The popular Northgate restaurant closed March 8 following a bitter feud between the brothers and the developers who bought the property from the city in January. The restaurant is moving to the old Luby’s location at Texas and Rosemary.
