Guillory exchanged information with the other driver before leaving the scene, preventing a hit-and-run, the soldiers told KATC.

However, a call still went out, and the soldiers pulled over and arrested Guillory on suspicion of drunk driving. He was issued a subpoena for multiple felonies including first offense DWI, non-surrender and a stop sign and no proof of insurance.

Troopers also said Guillory refused a breathalyzer test, which KATC says could result in a year’s driver’s license suspension.

Guillory has remained silent about the arrest on social media. The latest post from his Facebook page on Sunday relates to the 2020 midterm elections.
