ALPINE, TX (KWES) - An arrest affidavit is revealing new information following the DWI arrest of Chris Estrada.

Estrada, as we have reported, is a person of interest in connection with the case of missing Sul Ross State University student Zuzu Verk.

We're told on Jan. 22, 2017, an officer attempted to pulled Estrada over in the 200 block of North 5th St. in Alpine around 2 a.m.

He also stated that, "the car was fast so he was fast."

Following a field sobriety test, Estrada was taken into custody and taken to the Brewster County Jail.

Estrada is charged with driving while intoxicated and evading arrest of detention with a vehicle.
