DALLAS - A local state representative for East Dallas is facing a DWI charge. Dallas police arrested Victoria Neave Tuesday night in the Lakewood area after she crashed her car into a tree at Abrams Road and La Vista Drive.

Officers say the 36-year-old refused to perform a sobriety test at the scene of the accident. She posted a $500 bond at Dallas County Jail Wednesday morning and released a video on Facebook regarding her behavior.

Neave, a Democrat, represents Texas House District 107 -- which includes areas of Dallas, Garland, and Mesquite. She recently went on a four-day hunger strike during the recent Texas legislative session as her way of protesting SB4, the 'sanctuary city' bill, and scored a victory with an amendment allowing local entities to prohibit their employees and peace officers from assisting federal immigration officers at places of worship.

Neave was scheduled to speak at an event in Dallas Thursday, but it has been canceled.

Dallas County released video of Neave being booked into the jail after the June 5 arrest:
