A Bryan man was arrested Monday evening for Driving While Intoxicated after stopping in the parking lot of the Brazos County Sheriff's Office.

70-year-old Manuel Contreras Jr. parked his car in the middle of the parking lot of the Sheriff's office off Sandy Point Road. A Sheriff's Deputy asked Contreras to move the truck and smelled a strong odor of alcohol. He admitted to Bryan Police to drinking before driving.

Contreras failed field sobriety tests and was arrested. This was his third DWI offense. His first arrest was in Anderson, TX, back in 1978. His second through fourth was in College Station in 1986 and 1987.

Contreras was booked for Driving While Intoxicated - Enhanced, because this was his fifth offense.

He was in the Brazos County Jail as of Wednesday morning under a $10,000 bond.
