UPDATE OCT. 2, 2019 4:34 p.m.

Wichita Falls businessman and Crawdaddy’s restaurant owner Jody Wade was booked into Wichita County Jail Tuesday after prosecutors filed a motion to revoke his probation for unlawfully carrying a weapon.

He posted a $1,350 surety bond and was released.

In 2017 wade was arrested after a DPS trooper said he saw Wade’s SUV weaving across lanes on Central FWY.

After stopping Wade, the trooper said he detected a strong odor of alcohol on Wade’s breath, his speech was slurred and he was unsteady on his feet.

He said Wade admitted to having three mixed drinks and a couple of beers before driving and he also admitted to having a handgun in the center console.

The trooper said Wade first agreed to a breathalyzer test then declined. He was transported to the hospital so blood could be drawn with a search warrant.

In 2018 he was sentenced to 12 months probation for both the DWI and gun charge.

Prosecutors filed to revoke the DWI probation in July.

The motions to revoke were filed after Wade was arrested in July on a charge of public intoxication.

Police say they were notified early that morning by hospital officials that Wade was being treated for an injury but left against their advice, and an officer located him at 10th and Holliday and arrested him for public intoxication

Wade had a previous arrest in 2007 for public intoxication.
