Charles Edwin Hill was in the 78th District Court on Friday, March 20th at 8:30 a.m. for a jury pre-trial.

Hill was taken to the hospital, where troopers interviewed Hill and noticed a strong odor of alcohol emanating from him.

Hill gave a blood sample, and the results showed that he was beyond the Texas legal limit at .135.

Hill's trial date has been tentatively set for April 6th.
