Officers booked her into the Dallas County Jail at 3:30 a.m. (CDT) on Wednesday where she remained, waiting to see a magistrate.
Dallas police arrested state Rep. Victoria Neave early Wednesday morning for driving while intoxicated.
According to the police report, Neave, who's an attorney, repeatedly told officers, "I love you and I will fight for you and I'm invoking my 5th Amendment rights".
She was booked into the Dallas County Jail at 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday and is now waiting to see a magistrate judge. The arrest warrant described Neave, 36, as having a strong odor of alcohol, unsteady, and with bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, WFAA reported.
"Local Dallas reporter Jason Whitely says that Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, a Democrat who has had her own stand-offs with Texas Republicans over immigration enforcement policies, let Neave exit jail out of a private exit, allowing her to avoid reporters."

Though they got first use of a green-tinged surface on a cloudy London day, Sri Lanka's bowling effort was modest. Middle-order batsman Chamara Kapugedera will probably be ruled out after injuring himself during the practice.
During the recent legislative session, Neave went on a self-imposed hunger strike for four days to protest the "sanctuary city" bill.
In a video posted on her Facebook page, Neave said she disappointed her family, constituents, supporters and herself.
In a statement, Neave said she was grateful no one was hurt in the single-vehicle accident, and she accepts the consequences of her actions. I disappointed myself. I am deeply sorry.
Neave represents District 107, which covers East Dallas, Mesquite, and Garland, in the Texas House. The measure, Senate Bill 4, later passed and was signed into law.
