Ron Trevino returns to KHOU 11, addresses DWI arrest

After DWI arrest, Ron Trevino returns to KHOU 11 and talks about it on air

UPDATE JUNE 19, 2014

Ron Trevino returned to the KHOU morning news desk today a little less than week after being arrested and charged with suspicion of driving while intoxicated last Tuesday as his station first reported (clip embedded above or on mobile click here).

During the morning newscast, Trevino talked about the event and said the arrest happened on his way home from the rodeo.

Trevino expressed gratitude to viewers who have supported him. He admits it has been an embarrassment to him, his family and KHOU but said it is important for him to talk about it.

The anchor said nothing like this has ever happened to him before and he is still processing it.

He admitted the severity of the charge, and while he may not agree with the allegations against him, he supports what the Houston Police Department does to protect citizens from drunk drivers.

He says his side of the case will be presented soon and KHOU will continue to report on the story.

  1. Michelle Valles did the same thing back in 2007 when she was at KXAN-TV NBC 36 Austin.

  2. Mike,

    Do you think KHOU will continue to employ Ron after this is legally settled?

  3. I don't get how he has a "side" to this case. If he was arrested for driving under the influence, he was driving under the influence, period. Either you're drunk driving or you're not. There's no "side." What he did was absolutely inexcusable. Ron's a nice enough guy, but that and the fact that he's a TV personality (teleprompter reader though he may be) should do nothing to mitigate his culpability in this. He could have killed somebody. Just because he didn't, doesn't mean he has any kind of defense in this matter. I hope the court makes an example of him and he loses his job, because you can't make many more dumber decisions than what he did (allegedly, apparently).

    1. Well, it looks like you were there and have all the evidence. I mean really, are you that arrogant to think you have all the facts? Maybe he did make a bad derision, these things happen. But, unless you were there at the traffic stop and saw every bit of evidence against this man, who are you to judge? People are arrested all the time unjustly. You know the expression, "you may beat the wrap, but you wont beat the ride." I don't know, I wasn't there. And if Ron did break the law, shame on him, but let's not judge on a case we clearly know little about. And why do you think he needs to be made "an example of"? How would you like it if someone made an example out of your bad grammar? "You can't make many more dumber[er] decisions than that." Get over yourself.

    3. The people that are on his side have driven drunk and don't want to admit that they were in the wrong. This is why they don't think he did anything wrong. They don't seem to know the difference between right and wrong. Instead they blame the cops. Why did they pull him over in the first place. Obviously, he was doing something to make them think something was up? People with commons sense know that even one drink can cause problems, so they don't drink, or have someone else drive. You people need to stop making excuses for "famous' people and yourselves and grow up!

    4. Thank you..that is so true..why does this man think he has a side...he was drunk. I have lost all respect for Mr. Travino.

  4. @Anon - not sure what country you live in, but the burden of proof is on the state - that's just kinda how our system works. Take the time to think it out. What could possibly go wrong if just because a gov't official says you did something makes it the undisputed truth. DWI is a disgusting crime, but it's not always black and white. Just ask a diabetic.

  5. I guess you didn't read the news story about the guy in Austin who was arrested even though he blew a 0.00 on a breathalyzer test. And they also took a blood sample that proved he had no alcohol in his system.

  6. Anonymous, an arrest is not proof. Our courts exist to get to the truth. Not all persons arrested for DWI were in fact DWI. We have trials to determine that.

  7. If Dave Ward(dwi) and Ed Brandon(cokehead) were able yo keep their jobs, Ron should be safe. Although they work for different stations.

  8. I don't think Ron should be penalized even with the station. We don't know all the facts and it is for Ron to go through the case and more. We don't know a lot with it and more either. Just that he was arrested for DWI. I support Ron and more and wish him well and I do hope he will continue with the Station and more.

  9. You don't even need to be drinking to be arrested for DUI... only takes one Delta Bravo police officer to get you.

  10. Once someone ever feels the horrific pain of losing a innocent loved one or BEST friend murdered by drunk drivers will you ever be on the RIGHT side of the law. Drunk driving is against the law period!! No one wants that knock on their door from law enforcement. Being a "nice" guy doesn't change the fact he made a "bad" choice and had no regard to other innocent lives if found guilty. I pray he learns from this ordeal.
