Grayson County Judge addresses DWI arrest at Commissioners Court

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - Grayson County Judge Bill Magers spoke publicly at Commissioners Court Tuesday morning for the first time since his arrest last week.

Grayson County Judge Bill Magers addressed his Feb. 19 DWI arrest at Commissioners Court.

"Thank you for all the support of everyone in the audience and it's been overwhelming. I am taking steps to take care of it. I am a problem solver. I've got a problem, I'll take care of it," Magers said.

"I'm waiting on some paperwork to get done, but I will be available. I'll have office hours during the day and I'll also be here every Tuesday so I will be doing my part but also taking care of some issues."

"With that, again, thanks to everyone who's reached out in prayers, especially prayers. On behalf of Angela and the family, we really do appreciate it," Magers said.

On Feb. 19 around 10:15 p.m., Texas troopers arrested Magers for driving while intoxicated after they say he hit a light pole near Schulman's Movie Bowl Grille.

Tuesday morning Magers said he will be seeking formal treatment and asked for prayers.
