Adolfo “Al” Alvarez Jr., 52, was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated after his white 2011 Mercedes-Benz veered off the road and crashed into the home in the 3500 block of Northwestern St., police Chief Victor Rodriguez said.

Eye witnesses, who positively identified Alvarez at the scene, said he showed obvious signs of intoxication, which were also noted in the probable cause affidavit that McAllen police released Wednesday.     …MORE
