State official arrested for DUI


A deputy attorney general has been arrested for driving under the influence.

Hugh Jones was arrested just after 8 a.m. Thursday on the H-3 Freeway near the Harano Tunnel.

According to the department’s website, Jones is the supervising deputy attorney general for the tax and charities division.

We reached out to the A.G.’s office, but it declined to comment on Jones’s arrest at this time.

He was released after posting $500 bail. Jones is set to appear in court next month.
