KSAT reporter John Paul Barajas was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Jail records show that Barajas posted bond on Sunday and was released from jail. The San Antonio, Texas ABC station posted the news on its website.

“KSAT12 is aware of an incident regarding one of our employees being arrested for alleged driving under the influence on November 5th, 2023,” said Ashley Parker, vp and gm of KSAT. “We ask that you respect the privacy of all involved and refrain from speculation or conjecture.”


San Antonio police said he refused a breathalyzer. He was taken into custody without incident after being pulled over for speeding and drifting outside the lane of traffic while driving on Interstate 10 just before 2 a.m. on Sunday.
