A warrant states a San Antonio Police Department officer stopped Aguero around 2:15 a.m. while she was driving 75 mph in a 60 mph zone on northbound I-37 near the Brooklyn exit ramp.

Her vehicle was also veering from its lane and struck a construction barrel with workers present nearby, according to the warrant. Police said her vehicle struck a cement wall, and an officer could reportedly smell alcohol on her.

Aguero told police she was not aware that she hit a barrel in the road. She also stated she had been drinking at a friend's house "because she had a bad day."

Her blood was drawn after she refused to give breath or blood samples at the time of her arrest, according to the warrant.

Aguero also has a previous DWI conviction, according to court documents.
