AUSTIN – Police arrested a man they say was driving drunk with his five-year-old daughter in the car.
On July 20, police responded to a call of a car crashing into a parked, white truck at 2614 Euclid. An arrest affidavit describes the driver of the car as Jordan Feiner, 39, who appeared to be intoxicated by EMS officials at the scene.
A police officer questioned Feiner about the crash and said he and his daughter were going to get some breakfast when he swerved to avoid a cat.
When officers asked Feiner if he had consumed any alcohol or drugs he said he had not. Another officer on scene told the officer performing a field sobriety test that EMS informed him Feiner may have suffered a seizure earlier, causing the accident.
Feiner was taken to the hospital after officers spoke with his ex-wife who said he has a history of seizures but is also known to have used marijuana.
A physician at St. David’s Hospital, where Feiner was taken, told police he admitted to taking Soma and hydrocodone earlier in the morning for back pain. A toxicology report obtained by police shows Feiner was under the influence of oxycodone, THC (marijuana), and opiates.
Feiner was booked on a $4,000 bond for driving while intoxicated with a child passenger, which is a state jail felony.
KVUE News obtained public records which show an arrest for possession of marijuana in December of 2010 in Bexar County. The charges were dropped in May of 2012 when sufficient evidence was not found.
KVUE News' exclusive partner the Austin American-Statesman reported in 2009 of an incident where Feiner allegedly tossed his bike at a crowd of people on the University of Texas campus after failing to land a trick on the bike.
When police attempted to question him, he fled, according to the news report. He was eventually apprehended and charged with evading arrest but later posted a $4,000 bond and was released.
