VICTORIA, Texas - The Texas Department of Transportation arrested a Victoria man and charged him with Intoxication Manslaughter in the 2018 death of a female passenger.
Adam Clayton Tucker was arrested on Monday, months after a motorcycle accident on FM 236 and Beck Road led to the death of a passenger he was riding with.
Court documents show Tucker had alcohol and Oxycodone in his system, to the point of intoxication, before operating a 2017 Harley Davidson with the victim.
Tucker crashed at the intersection of FM 266 and Beck Road, ejecting the female and killing her on impact.
Tucker was severely hurt from the accident and taken to a local hospital.
After a months long investigation into the accident, DPS determined that Tucker had willingly become intoxicated and endangered the female passenger by driving under the influence.
A warrant for Tucker's arrest was issued on July 23, 2019.
Tucker previously served time in prison for involuntary manslaughter back in 1994, after a crash led to one person's death.
During the arrest, Tucker told officers he was not going back to prison and that he had firearms.
Despite the implied threat, Tucker was apprehended without incident.
Tucker is being held at the Victoria County Jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
