Case Number: 1607190013

Corpus Christi Police arrested 36-year-old Eusebio Guillen (8/30/1979) for Driving While Intoxicated with a previous conviction at Carroll Lane and South Padre Island Drive Tuesday morning.

Officers found Guillen asleep in the driver’s seat with the engine running. Officers woke Guillen and determined he was not in medical distress, but was intoxicated. Officers impounded the vehicle, took Guillen to the hospital to collect a specimen of his blood, and delivered Guillen to the city detention center. Officers learned that Guillen had previously convicted of Driving While Intoxicated and so the Tuesday accusation was enhanced to a Class A Misdemeanor.
