San Antonio City councilman to appear before judge Tuesday

It’s the first time District 10 Councilman Marc Whyte will be in court since his DWI arrest in December.

SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio city councilmember is set to appear before a judge on Tuesday. It’s the first time District 10 Councilman Marc Whyte will be in court since his DWI arrest in December.

Whyte was pulled over by police on the north side when officers say he showed signs of intoxication on the road. This is going to be a preliminary hearing.

It was supposed to take place in March but was rescheduled to Tuesday, and a court clerk did confirm it’s happening and the councilman will be there. Our cameras won’t be allowed but reporters can sit in the courtroom.

Video was released from the night of Marc Whyte’s arrest on December 29. He was pulled over for speeding on Loop 410 and was reportedly swerving between lanes without signaling.

He explained to officers how many drinks he had that night, which he said was “three beers.”

After his arrest, Whyte told us he did not feel intoxicated at the time but took ownership and apologized.

In January, he was also censured and suspended from his committee assignments on council, but was reinstated last month.

Since then he has played a role on hot topics such as the controversial “reproductive justice fund” and is currently one of a few councilmembers who has considered calling for the removal of the city attorney.

Councilman Whyte is set to appear in court Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.

He faces a Class B misdemeanor charge, which is punishable with jail time and a $2,000 dollar fine.
