BASTROP COUNTY -- The director of the Bastrop County Animal Shelter was arrested in Bastrop Saturday morning.

Diane Mollaghan is charged with driving while intoxicated.

According to the Bastrop County Jail website, she was released from jail shortly after 2 p.m. on a $5,000 ound.

Earlier this month, Mollaghan took KVUE on a tour of the animal shelter, where she defended herself against accusations that the shelter doesn't meet standards.

Bastrop County commissioners decided to keep Mollaghan on the job despite complaints from several volunteers and animal rescue groups who said she has mismanaged the shelter, putting animals at risk and alienating volunteers.

Mollaghan has worked for the shelter since late September.
