ABILENE, Texas -

An alleged drunk driver with prior convictions was arrested on a felony DWI charge Friday after crashing in South Abilene.

Kenneth Outlaw, 49, was allegedly driving near South 2nd Street and Ross Avenue around 12:20 a.m. when he drove through traffic cones blocking off an area the city’s water department had sectioned off to work on a main break.

Officers said Outlaw crashed and subsequently refused to complete his field sobriety tests. Due to his three prior convictions, he was taken to Hendrick Medical Center for a mandatory blood draw.

Outlaw is charged with third degree felony DWI and posted his $10,000 bond within 24 hours of his arrest.
