HOUSTON (AP) - A former suburban Houston police officer charged with intoxicated manslaughter and two counts of intoxicated assault has been prohibited from driving if he’s able to get out of jail on a $150,000 bond.

State District Judge Catherine Evans set the conditions Monday for 45-year-old Stephen Alan Cook, a former Missouri City officer charged with hitting and killing 62-year-old Evelyn Brown while she was helping refuel her stepdaughter’s car on the side of a Houston freeway. Cook also is banned from drinking alcohol.

Authorities say Cook has told them he drank 10 beers on Oct. 16 when the crash occurred. Brown’s stepdaughter and one of her stepdaughter’s children also were hurt.

Prosecutors say Cook, from Rosenberg, has two previous convictions related to arrests for driving while intoxicated in Fort Bend County.
