LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - Lufkin Police say a man picked the wrong time to get drunk when he showed up for his probation appointment under the influence of alcohol.

According to the report, Adult Probation staff called Lufkin Police to the department building, located at 518 South First Street around 10:45 a.m. Thursday because David Quinn Rawls, 43, was intoxicated when he appeared for his probation appointment.

Responding officers reported finding that Rawls and his wife, Tina Madden Rawls, 47, who went with him to his appointment, had slurred speech, poor balance, bloodshot eyes, and an odor of alcohol on their breath.

David Rawls admitted to an officer that he had drunk six beers that day, according to the report.

Police arrested the couple for public intoxication, a class C misdemeanor.

David Rawls is on probation for a felony boating while intoxicated conviction in 2005, according to Angelina County Jail records, and probation has put a hold on his release from jail.

According to Adult Probation spokesman Dustin Fore, the department is adding additional terms to address his alcohol use.
