BRYAN - Already convicted on two charges of Driving While Intoxicated in Brazos County, a Bryan woman now faces a third DWI charge after her arrest early Sunday morning.
Victoria Blue, 53, was taken into custody by Bryan Police after officers say she was seen swerving on Texas Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets about ten minutes after midnight, nearly hitting another vehicle at one point. Once Blue turned onto Martin Luther King Street, BPD says she continued to swerve, was speeding at one point, then drastically reduced speed on a curve.
When she was pulled over, officers say she first denied having had anything to drink, but after she failed the field sobriety test -- including urinating on herself during the test -- Blue admitted to having two, 12-ounce beers around 5:00 p.m. Saturday, but nothing else.
Blue had been convicted of DWI in Brazos County in 1997 and again in 2010. In between, online records show she had been sentenced to ten years in prison for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
If convicted of a third DWI, Blue faces two-to-ten years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. It is a third-degree felony charge.
