SAN ANTONIO -- A visibly shaken Bexar County Commissioner Kevin Wolff apologized Wednesday, days after being arrested on suspicion of driving drunk.
Wolff, 51, said during a 20-minute press conference he has no plans to resign his Precinct 3 commissioner's seat.
Wolff, however, did acknowledge the hit his reputation has taken after details of his Sunday morning arrest came to light.
A blood draw warrant obtained by the KENS 5 I-Team indicates Wolff was without pants or shoes at the time of his 3 a.m. arrest.
Preliminary information provided by the San Antonio Police Department indicates Wolff's car hit two parked vehicles in the drive-thru of a north-side Whataburger.
Wolff said he does not remember much about the night, but confirmed Wednesday he got behind the wheel after mixing alcohol, blood pressure, and anti-anxiety medications as well as the prescription sleep aid Ambien.
"Nobody in their right mind wants this to happen to them. Especially if you're in the public eye. I've grown up my entire life knowing that, and trying to make sure nothing like this ever happened," said Wolff, commissioner for the north-side of Bexar County since 2009.
Wolff said he addressed the arrest with father, Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, for the first time Tuesday.
Kevin Wolff said his father told him to "take responsibility for my actions".
Wolff plans to plead no-contest to the misdemeanor DWI charge.
An arraignment hearing is set for August 19 in County Court 4.
Tuesday, an I-Team investigation revealed a top county official, Judicial Services Director Mike Lozito, asked detention staff to speed up Wolff's release from custody after his bond was posted Sunday morning.
When pressed about the issue Wednesday, Wolff said Lozito should not have made that call.
"I'm absolutely sad that he did that. I'm sure he was trying to do something good, but I absolutely didn't want that to happen," said Wolff, who is being challenged in November's election.
Wolff took part in a county work session Wednesday afternoon.
