Houston and Harris County lead the nation as one of the top cities and counties with the most DWI arrests and Intoxication-related fatalities.  Because of this staggering statistic, all the police agencies (HPD, HCSO, Constable’s Offices, etc.) in Harris County as well as the surrounding counties (i.e., Fort Bend, Montgomery, Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, Waller, Liberty, Polk, etc.) are on the hunt and making an overwhelming amount of DWI arrests in an attempt to offset.  When you get pulled over for suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated, the likelihood of being arrested can be nearly 95% when the officer asks you to step out of your vehicle.  If an officer smells alcohol (or any other intoxicant like Marijuana), then that percentage will increase to almost 100%.
