DALLAS (AP) - A Texas legislator has been arrested in Dallas on a misdemeanor intoxicated-driving charge.

Records show 36-year-old Victoria Neave (nee-AH’-vay) of Dallas was booked early Wednesday and released on $500 bond.

Dallas police on Tuesday night found her after her car slammed into a tree.

In a video posted on her Facebook page, Neave said she disappointed her family, constituents, supporters and herself. She expressed gratitude that no one was hurt and said she was “deeply sorry” and “will work to make this right.”

The Democrat, whose District 107 includes parts of Dallas, Mesquite and Garland, staged a four-day fast during the recent session to protest the so-called “sanctuary cities” bill that passed and was signed by GOP Gov Greg Abbott on May 7. The law takes effect Sept. 1.
