Defendant Sentenced to 10 Years Imprisonment for Driving While Intoxicated on Fort Sam Houston

SAN ANTONIO – A federal judge sentenced 52-year-old Tremont Druval Williams to 10 years of imprisonment for driving while intoxicated (DWI) on Joint Base San Antonio – Fort Sam Houston (JBSA – Ft. Sam).

According to court records, on August 2, 2018, Williams attempted to enter JBSA – Ft. Sam through the outbound lanes of the I-35 Access Control Point on George C. Beach Avenue.  Williams then reversed his vehicle out of the outbound lanes and made a U-turn.  A Senior Airman patrol officer noticed Williams struggling to stay in his lane and saw Williams cross the painted lane divider.  When the patrol officer approached Williams, he noticed Williams was slumped forward in his seat, had slurred incoherent speech and did not know where he was.  After failing field sobriety tasks, Williams was arrested.

Williams had six prior convictions for DWI in his criminal history.  He also has a pending DWI charge in Bexar County.  In addition to the DWIs, Williams had two convictions of assault family violence as well as multiple convictions for possession of cocaine.

On February 4, 2020, Defendant pleaded guilty to one count of driving while intoxicated.

The FBI and the Air Force Security Forces investigated this case.  AUSA Sarah Wannarka prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
