San Antonio Police arrest City Councilman Clayton Perry on DWI charge

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — San Antonio City Councilman Clayton Perry is out on bond after he was arrested on a DWI charge Wednesday afternoon.

The arrest comes after Perry was involved in a hit and run incident in November.

That’s when Perry is said to have crashed into another vehicle on Jones-Maltsberger, a few miles from his home. An officer found him injured, confused and lying on the ground in his backyard.

He turned himself in a few days later when he was charged with failure to stop. A few weeks later, SAPD filed a DWI case against Perry.

They arrested the Councilman Wednesday morning.

Perry was later released on $1,000 bond.

If he’s found guilty of DWI, he’s facing a fine of $3,000 and six months in jail.

Perry is currently on a leave of absence from City Council. Former City Councilman Mike Gallagher was selected to fill Perry’s District 10 seat on a temporary basis.
