On December 16, Samson Park Police charged Molina with driving while intoxicated.

However, Molina has been in the Tarrant County Jail since the accident on November 27. Therefore, the arrest must have happened prior to the fatal crash.

It is unclear why Molina was not charged beforehand.

CBS 11 has reached out to the Samson Park Police department for comment.
