According to deputies, Serrano was driving a Ford F-550 when it was not going in a single lane and hit Chavis in the butt.
Chavis’ squad car caught fire. A witness who took video of the MP’s car on fire said she heard a big bang before seeing black smoke.
On Monday, officials told ABC13 they went to the hospital to meet with Serrano and said his breath smelled of alcohol, in addition to “red eyes and slurred speech.”
According to authorities, Serrano admitted to officers that he had been drinking an alcoholic beverage prior to the crash.
On Monday, a judge set Serrano’s bail at $750,000, although prosecutors did not ask for bail.
Chavis was a precinct 7 congressman for a year and a half.
She leaves behind a husband, a 4-year-old son and an 11-year-old nephew, whom she also raised.
