LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Carelton Jenson Peterson, known as C.J. Peterson, was arrested and booked Sunday morning for Driving While Intoxicated.

Peterson, the Lubbock County Constable for Precinct 4, was released from the Lubbock County Detention Center at around 12:45 p.m. Sunday. He was also charged with a $1,500 bond.

The 40-year-old constable was elected into the Lubbock County Constable's Department in January of 2015 and his term is to end on Dec. 31, 2020

According to the police report, a witness said Peterson was "flying" going west in the 5200 block of 50th Street and the witness heard a loud boom from the truck hitting a curb. The witness said Peterson nearly ran over him and he also crashed into two parked cars. 

Police officers were called and a field sobriety test was given to Peterson, and he did not pass, according to the police report.

However, this was not the first time Peterson has been arrested for a DWI. In October 2010, KCBD NewsChannel 11 reported he was arrested on DWI charges while working as a deputy with the Hockley County Sheriff's Office. 

He was then placed on administrative leave and resigned later that week.

KCBD NewsChannel will update this story as more information becomes available.

    Farmers and ranchers will tell you mesquite trees aren't good for anything but firewood because they'll take over a pasture, but one man in Jayton has turned the ugly side of mesquite into a treasure.
