He’s a former prosecutor in the Texas Attorney General’s office arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and Hays County is fighting release of the dashcam video & audio. As reported by the Statesman, Hays County Court-at-Law Judge David Glickler was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in May 2015.
Glickler, 46, was pulled over about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday by a deputy sheriff on Interstate 35, south of downtown Kyle, officials said.
He was charged with driving while intoxicated, a class B misdemeanor. Glickler was booked at the Hays County Jail early Wednesday morning and was released after posting a $3,000 bail.
The May 2015 arrest was not Glicklers’ first:
The former prosecutor in the state attorney general’s office had been arrested in 2004 after driving backwards on a one-way street in Travis County and refused to take a breathalyzer test. He was convicted for reckless driving and spent one night in jail, records show.
In response to an open records request dated June 23, 2015 Hays County seeks a ruling from the Open Records Division of the Texas Attorney General’s office.
In his letter to the Open Records Division, Wes Mau, the Hays County Criminal District Attorney cites the “law enforcement” exception to Chapter 552 of the Texas Public Information Act.
Claiming release of the dashcam video and audio & release of the 911 call and blood level alcohol test results would interfere with law enforcement or prosecution of a crime, Hays County asserted Section 552.108 (a) 1 of the Government Code.
The Hays County letter also asserts the information, if released could hinder cooperation between witnesses and the District Attorney.
In 2013 Glickler served as one of the state attorney general’s prosecutors in the voting rights case against Jim Jenkins in The Woodlands Road Utility District election.
