Authorities say Democratic state. Rep. Naomi Gonzalez has been arrested on charges of drunk driving.

Austin police spokesman Jermaine Kilgore said the El Paso lawmaker was arrested Thursday after rear-ending another car around 2 a.m. near downtown. He says the other car struck by Gonzalez's BMW was then pushed into a bicyclist. Kilgore said both Gonzalez and the bicyclist were transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Records show Gonzalez remained in Travis County jail Thursday afternoon. Aides at her Capitol office declined to immediately comment.

The 34-year-old Gonzalez was first elected in 2010 and serves on a House ethics committee.
