Clayton Perry to return to San Antonio City Council after leave of absence, DWI charge

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Clayton Perry is set to return to San Antonio City Council on Thursday.

KSAT-TV reports that numerous members of the council have confirmed Perry’s intentions.

Perry took a leave of absence in mid-November, which was just days after a hit-and-run accident he was thought to have been involved in.

But police body cam footage taken shortly after the accident showed Perry lying in his backyard late at night with blood coming from his head. He appeared to have difficulty with tasks, such as sitting up, and he struggled to answer questions being asked by the officer.

Perry later admitted to being behind the wheel during the crash, and he also claimed responsibility for failing to stop to render aid or give information.

City Council voted ‘no-confidence’ in Perry, and not long after Mike Gallagher was appointed to temporarily fill Perry’s vacant seat.

Perry was booked for DWI on December 28, 2022.

This is a developing story and we will pass along more details when possible.
