Clayton Perry hit-and-run night details uncovered by DA records.
A newly obtained record has stated that a cashier felt “uncomfortable” after District 10 Councilman Clayton Perry went through the drive-thru. The San Antonio police estimated that Perry had a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.25 during a hit-and-run crash last November, where he was reportedly behind the wheel.
According to the record obtained from the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office, an investigation into the incident was conducted by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD). Perry pleaded no contest and received deferred adjudication last month. Video footage from the surveillance camera at the north-side bar, Evil Olive, showed the councilman sipping on one of eight beers and six shots he had consumed over the span of four hours, as per the SAPD report.
The staff at the bar did not note any signs of slurred speech or indications of drunkenness, but they did point out that Perry had a history of walking out on tabs. Interviews with the bar’s staff revealed that Perry had told a 17-year-old cashier, “I love you, I’m just here to see you,” when he went through the Bill Miller drive-thru without ordering anything later that evening. Instead, he offered to pay for the vehicle behind him. Perry then attempted to give the manager his keys and wallet.
Perry subsequently left the restaurant and allegedly hit a Honda Civic at the intersection of Jones-Maltsberger and Redland Road. Officers from SAPD discovered Perry in his backyard with his Jeep still running in the driveway. Perry never explicitly admitted to drinking that night. Instead, he only mentioned having a good time.
The councilman pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of DWI and failing to stop and give information. As part of his deferred adjudication, Perry will not be allowed to consume alcohol for one year. The new record obtained by KENS 5 has brought to light a reckless incident that could have had serious consequences, considering Perry’s apparent level of inebriation at the time of the incident.
