This is what happens when you drink too much alcohol! This was one of the first 'Texas' type headlines to come out of Texas for 2022! On January 5, 2022, Deputies with Constable Mark Herman's Office responded to a call in reference to reports of a truck on fire. Upon deputies' arrival, it was discovered that driver was traveling with a lit BBQ pit in the bed of his truck creating a large fire. The Facebook status did not say if there was BBQ on the actual grill.
Deputies determined that the driver, Jay Rojas, displayed signs of intoxication. Standardized Field Sobriety Tests were conducted and it was discovered that he was intoxicated. He was also found to be in possession of Cocaine. The official statement from Constable Mark Harman: "Jay Rojas was arrested and booked in the Harris County Jail, charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Possession of a Controlled Substance. His bond and court information have not been set at this time."
