A Brownwood woman was arrested on charges of DWI and possession of a controlled substance after a traffic accident early Sunday morning. Her husband, who was a passenger in another vehicle, was arrested for allegedly shoving an elderly man who tried to calm the two as they argued at the accident scene, police said.
    Brownwood police and Brown County Jail records identified the two as Ermelinda Sierra, 30, and Gustavo Buitron, 29. Buitron was arrested on charges of injury to an elderly person, possession of marijuana and public intoxication.
    According to an email from Brownwood police:
    Offices were dispatched at 2:30 a.m. Sunday to the 1600 block of Main Boulevard for a traffic accident.
    Upon arrival, officers observed several people on the street and a white SUV,
rolled over onto its roof. A male standing in the road waved officers to
a side street, where they observed another male fleeing from the accident. Officers
were able to stop the fleeing male.
    Once the scene was secured, officers learned Sierra was the driver and sole occupant of the SUV. Investigation revealed that Sierra was at a nearby night club when she and her husband got into an argument. Sierra left the club and traveled on Main Boulevard, where she struck a parked vehicle.
    Sierra displayed several indicators of intoxicated driving and was arrested for DWI. A search of her property revealed several different prescription pills in an unmarked prescription pill bottle.
    Simultaneously, officers arrested Buitron for injury to an elderly person,
public intoxication and possession of marijuana. Investigation revealed Buitron
was a passenger in a vehicle behind Sierra when the accident occurred. After the
accident, several residents exited their homes and began to aid Sierra out of her
rolled SUV.
    When Buitron arrived at the scene, he and Sierra got into an
argument. An elderly resident attempted to calm them down, resulting in Buitron
allegedly becoming aggressive toward the resident and shoving him to the ground, causing
injury, police said.
    Officers located a baggy of suspected marijuana.
