Police in Rosenberg, where Miguel Espinoza resides, said their traffic division pulled him over on Friday under suspicion of a potential bond violation.
According to police, traffic units learned that Espinoza, who’s out on bond for four counts of intoxication manslaughter out of Galveston County, may have been operating vehicles without an Interlock device, which prevents or allows drivers to start a car based on blood-alcohol level.
Police said officers located Espinoza while he was operating a vehicle without the required device.
Espinoza was taken into custody for driving while license invalid. Police also sent bond violation information to the Galveston County courts.
