A 30-year-old Rusk man accepted a plea bargain deal Friday that amounts to four years of probation for driving drunk with two children under the age of 15 in the car. The DWI with a child incident occurred in August 2013.

Sergio Delacruz appeared in Judge Gerald Goodwin's courtroom Friday. He accepted a plea bargain deal for two years of prison probated for two years, plus two years of probation. Basically, that means he will serve four years of probation. If he gets in trouble with the law again during that period, he could face up to two years of prison time.

She had gone to the scene in response to a 911 call about a reckless driver speeding with his hazard lights on and swerving in and out of the grassy median.

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.
