A Dallas man was arrested after he allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian while drunk and high on cocaine.

Sadly, drunk driving deaths are common in Texas. A person dies from drunk driving on average every 7.5 hours in the Lone Star State. However, this incident has a particularly grisly detail.

The deceased pedestrian's bloody, severed arm was found inside the drunk man's car.

This might remind you of another infamous Texas drunk-driving death: Chante Mallard drove drunk with an entire person lodged in her windshield.

Unlike Mallard, who attempted to cover up her crime, Juan Morgan Munoz, 31 did call 911, but not until 30 minutes after the incident. The pedestrian was struck near Storey Lane and I-35E, about a mile from Munoz's workplace.

Although Munoz told police he had only had one shot of Patron (a brand of tequila) before beginning his drive to work, his breathalyzer test reported a blood alcohol level of .179%. The legal limit is .08%. Munoz also allegedly admitted that cocaine was also in his system.

Munoz was on probation for his two previous drunk driving convictions when this incident occurred. He had been at a Hooters in Grand Prairie before he drove to work at midnight on Saturday, June 15th.

Officers who responded to the call reported in the arrest warrant affidavit that Munoz had, "glassy/watery eyes, slurred speech, and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage,” and that his BMW had significant damage, including a hole in the windshield.

Presumably, that is how the pedestrian's arm became severed and landed in the passenger seat.

Munoz is in Dallas County jail, "facing felony DWI and collision involving death related to the weekend hit-and-run."

What Is A Day Like In Texas Prisons? A View From Both Sides Of The Bars

Have you ever wondered what life inside a Texas prison is really like? I asked friends who are correction officers and folks who have volunteered at jails. I also asked former inmates, and browsed forums and articles with current and former inmates. Put all together, it paints what I hope is a fairly accurate picture of daily prison life in Texas.
