Police report for the Texas DA clay ballman arrest

In  Borger,  Texas,  On  May  12,  2005,  intoxicated  District  Attorney  Ballman  hit  the  teenage  daughter  of  Betty  Holland. After  driving  away  from  the  sight  of  his  drunken  driving  accident,  Borger  Police  arrested  him. The  Borger  Police  broke  out  a  window  of  the  DA’s  vehicle  in  order  to  remove  him. Mr. Ballman  refused  to  follow  the  implied  consent  law  he  has  avowed  to  sustain. He  also  refused  a  breath  test  and  a  field  abstinence  test.

The  district  Attorney  did  not  spend  the  night  in  jail  because  the  district  judge  released  him. The  incident  was  reported  widely  on  local  and  statewide  media. On  May  2006,  it  was  found  that  the  district  Attorney  did  not  have  a  criminal  record  a  year  following  his  arrest  and  conviction. If  Channel  10  Television  had  not  reported  the  alleged  tinkering  with  public  records,  Ballman  would  have  enjoyed  a  clean  record. Any  DA  with  special  legal  privileges  mocks  justice.

How  can  justice  be  applied  in  the  capacity  of  a  district  Attorney  when  equal  justice  does  not  apply  to  the  DA?
