The deputy saw Delacruz climb into his truck and drive off, and pulled him over. The ACSO deputy reported that Delacruz smelled of alcohol, and his eyes were glassy. In addition, he failed a field sobriety test.

Delacruz was driving with a 10-month-old girl and a 2-year-old boy in the truck with him. He was arrested at the scene and charged with DWI with a child, a state-jail felony.

After posting a bail of $7,500, Delacruz was released from the Angelina County jail the next day.
