San Antonio TV sports anchor arrested on suspicion of DWI

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A local television sportscaster was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

KSAT-TV Sports Director and Anchor Greg Simmons, 67 was stopped by a Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputy after Simmons was found driving around 20 miles per hour and drifting in his lane. Simmons was pulled over on Evans Road — just east of Bulverde Road — after a deputy reportedly followed him for close to five minutes with his lights and siren on. The deputy reported the smell of alcohol was evident.

Records show Simmons refused a breathalyzer test after he admitted to having come from a bar on Stone Oak Parkway. Upon refusing the breathalyzer test, a deputy then asked a judge to grant a warrant for a blood draw.

KSAT-TV reports Simmons was magistrated Friday morning.

This is a developing story and we will pass along more information when it is available.
