HOWE, TX -- A driver police say was weaving all over the road in Howe turned out to be an Oklahoma politician.

State Sen. Harry Coates, 63, of Seminole, Okla., was arrested on suspicion of DWI.

Police Chief Carl Hudman says a worried driver called in after spotting Coates' vehicle around 11 p.m. on Thursday night on Highway 75.

Officers then pulled him over near Farmington Road. Hudman says Coates was cooperative, but too drunk to safely complete field sobriety tests.

Coates was taken to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital-WNJ for a blood draw, then booked into the Grayson County Jail around 3 a.m.  He posted a $1,500 bond.
