BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - A nurse at St. Joseph hospital in Bryan has been charged with DWI after allegedly being convinced to leave work after she stumbled in the hallways.

Bryan police say it happened Friday just before 3 p.m. They were advised a nurse who had just left possibly intoxicated, went to her vehicle and began driving away.

Police say they saw the vehicle on E. Villa Maria, then as it passed Osborn Lane it tilted up with only the passenger side tires touching the ground.

Police say there was also an open four-pack of wine on the passenger floorboard.

St. Joseph Health released this statement to KBTX:
