An Early man was arrested on a felony DWI charge and a drug warrant after the car he was driving struck a utility pole Sunday afternoon in Brownwood, police and jail records state.
    David Wallace, 38, remained Monday in the Brown County Jail.
    According to a report by Brownwood police Sgt. Zane Taylor:
    Taylor was dispatched to the 300 block of Washington, where a witness said he saw a 1997 Honda Civic suddenly veer right off the road and hit the pole. The driver, identified as Wallace, tried to push the car out of the road, then asked the witness for help.
    When Wallace saw the witness talking on his cell phone, Wallace asked the witness if he was calling the police. When the witness said that was exactly what he was doing, Brown moved a bag around in the front seat and fled on foot.
    Taylor located a barefoot Wallace walking in the 300 block of Greenleaf. Taylor believed he saw signs on intoxication as Wallace denied knowing anything about the accident. Wallace learned he had a Hunt County warrant and admitted he’d been driving the accident vehicle.
    Wallace had two previous DWI convictions, in 2001 and 2014, Taylor’s report states.
