Esteban Solis, co-host on KABB-TV’s ‘Daytime at Nine,’ was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Friday, February 3.


San Antonio Daytime host Esteban Solis was arrested on driving while intoxicated charges early Friday morning, February 3, according to Bexar County records. The charge said it was Solis’ second DWI offense.

San Antonio police told WOAI Solis, 42, was arrested shortly before 1 a.m. on Friday. Solis is a host on KABB’s Daytime with Kimberly and Esteban. Solis joined the Sinclair station in 2013. Eagle-eyed viewers noticed his absence on Friday morning for the Daytime show.

In Texas, a second DWI offense is a Class A Misdemeanor. The maximum fine is $6,000.00, and the maximum jail sentence is 12 months. A conviction for this offense is permanent, requires a 3-day jail sentence (even if probation is granted), and results in a driver’s license suspension.

The DWI arrest comes after now-former sports anchor for KSAT 12 Greg Simmons was arrested in connection with driving while intoxicated on January 27. Court records and multiple reports say, Simmons, 67, was arrested after he was seen driving his vehicle at 20 miles per hour down Evans Road. He was reportedly driving on his way home from The Green Lantern Bar.

District 10 Councilman Clayton Perry was also charged with driving while intoxicated on December 28, 2022 almost two months after police released footage of him lying in his backyard after the alleged hit-and-run. Details from the arrest affidavit revealed Perry drank 14 alcoholic beverages in a four-hour time frame before the alleged hit-and-run crash in November.
