Drunk Driver Faces Aggravated Assault Charge

An apparent drunk driver today led DPS troopers on a high-speed chase in Smith County. Authorities say he was reportedly driving wrecklessly at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour. Officers this morning arrested Jose Santacruz on I-20, after he hit some construction barrels and an officer's patrol car twice. Authorities say no one was injured. Santacruz is now in the Smith County Jail. He faces charges of aggravated assault on a police officer with a deadly weapon, DWI, and fleeing.
