State Rep. René Oliveira (D- Brownsville) was arrested and charged with “DWI (accident)” in connection with an incident that occurred on Friday, April 27, according to records released by the Brownsville Police Department (BPD).
The accident occurred at the 800 block of Boca Chica Boulevard just after 10 p.m. that Friday, police records show. According to the report, an officer arriving at the scene of the accident witnessed “a dark colored Cadillac leaving the area and a silver Lexus parked behind the Cadillac.”
A woman in the Lexus told the officer that no accident had taken place, but the driver of a third vehicle — a Chevy Cruze — told the officer her car had been struck from behind by the Cadillac while she was stopped at a traffic light.
A man then exited the Cadillac and handed the driver of the Cruze a business card “and told her that he would take care of everything,” the report reads.
