City Councilman Marc Whyte’s DWI Hearing Rescheduled

The council member is currently barred from committee assignments but can still attend City Council meetings.

In San Antonio, a District 10 City Councilman, Marc Whyte, who was accused of driving under the influence after being arrested late December, was scheduled to appear in court in March. This has now been postponed to the morning of May 14.

The original court date was set for Tuesday, and court officials validated the rescheduling to KENS 5.

On the evening of December 29, Whyte was arrested on the north side after allegedly showing signs of being intoxicated. He was released the following day after making bail, claiming that he “did not feel intoxicated” when driving home.

Whyte admitted that should no one drive even after having just a single drink, apologized for his behavior, and accepted full responsibility for his actions.

In January, in a unanimous vote, the City Council rebuked Whyte but allowed him to maintain his position on the council. However, Mayor Ron Nirenberg decided to temporarily suspend Whyte from his committee duties until further information regarding the incident comes to light.

City authorities confirmed on Monday that Whyte’s suspension was still in effect.

Being convicted of driving while intoxicated can lead to a jail time of up to 180 days, a fine of up to $2,000, or both. In addition, the license of anyone found guilty may be suspended for up to two years.
