GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) - A former Tom Bean city councilman has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Ben Vincent was arrested in July 2017 after crashing into a truck.
Police say Vincent was driving erratically on Highway 11 when he hit a Tom Bean ISD truck.
Police suspected Vincent was drunk and arrested him for intoxicated assault and aggravated assault.
Prosecutors dropped the intoxication assault charge in exchange for the guilty plea.
A Grayson county judge will sentence him in March. He faces a maximum of 10 years.
Days prior to his arrest, Vincent had been pulled over in Whitewright and admitted to drinking a full bottle of wine.
