Emilio Navaira: DWI Arrest warrant

It comes as no surprise but yet,...it is still a little shocking and sad that Tejano singer Emilio Navaira has been charged with driving while intoxicated earlier Friday.

It is a Class A misdemeanor charge that comes as a result of Navaira's crashing his tour bus in late March 2008.

Fan reaction has been mixed over the lpst year. Some blame him completely for the accident and say he is responsible for any and all injuries and damages. On the flip side, others say with his subsequent coma and hospitilization, and full recovery that has yet to come to pass, Emilio has suffered enough.

According to family members, Emilio still needs another operation to replace the bone piece that doctor sremoved last April to relieve pressure on his brain.

According to Warren Diepraam, Harris County chief of vehicular crimes prosecutions, under the charge, Navaira would face up to two years probation or up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000. His bond was set at $5,000.

Officials said despite the arrest warrant, Navaira will most likely be able to simply post a bond.

Harris County District Attorney's Office on Friday filed the charge against Navaira. His bond was set at $5,000.

Navaira is subject to arrest. But because he is not considered a danger to the public or a flight risk, Diepraam said the more likely scenario is that he will post bond.

What typically follows in such cases is a probable cause hearing in County Court of Law 11.

According to the Associated Press, Navaira had a blood alcohol level of 0.19, more than twice the legal limit for driving, when he wrecked his bus on a freeway in suburban Houston in March 2008.

Navaira has previously been arrested twice on DWI charges. The Grammy-winning singer was severely injured during the accident. Doctors performed two brain surgeries and repaired an aneurysm in his right lung.

In other news, there is a new live concert DVD available on Emilio. Titled "Live in Tejas," it was produced by Q Productions in Corpus Christi, and the DVD is available at all HEB stores.

"It is really good, great quality," said writer Ramon Hernandez, who has seen it.
