Emilio Could Face Jail

Tejano star Emilio Navaira faces a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated and could spend up to a year in jail if convicted, according to Texas media.

Navaira turned himself in to Houston authorities March 6 and posted a $5,000 bond.

The charges stem from a March 2008 tour bus accident in suburban Houston, which injured some of Navaira’s bandmates and left the star with severe head injuries, from which he is still recovering.

Police said Navaira’s blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit at the time of the crash and he was not licensed to drive the bus.
