The district clerk for Galveston County was arrested on a driving while intoxicated charge.
The League City Police Department said it believes Jason Elroy Murray, 37, was under the influence when he was in two minor traffic accidents on Tuesday.
Investigators said Murray first crashed into a truck on West Main Street. He received a ticket.
When he drove away, officers said he was driving erratically and hit another car. Officers arrested him and took him to jail.
This is not Murray's first brush with the law. In December, he was charged with misdemeanor assault following an argument with his wife.
