An assistant McLennan County district attorney who prosecutes DWI cases was arrested early Saturday morning on a charge of suspicion of driving while intoxicated, jail records indicate.

Kristen Parker, 27, was arrested by a Baylor University police officer Saturday morning before she was booked into the McLennan County Jail a little before 4:45 a.m., authorities said. Parker was released later Saturday after posting a $1,000 surety bond.

Parker joined the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office about a year ago. She is typically responsible for prosecuting misdemeanor DWI cases.

Parker is a 2010 Vanderbilt University graduate and got her law degree from Baylor Law School in 2014, according to her LinkedIn page.

Requests to the Baylor Police Department for additional information were not returned. Calls to Baylor spokespeople were not returned Saturday afternoon.
