Augie Garrido is the winningest coach in NCAA Division I history, but he clearly thought his career was in jeopardy when he was pulled over for drunk driving on January 17. He expressed concern about his career at least three times during a traffic stop that ended in his arrest for DWI. "This will end my career, you know," he told the officer who pulled him over for driving with his headlights off. "What will end your career?" the officer asked. "If I have a DUI," Garrido responded. "Why would you have a DWI?" "No reason," Garrido answered. The officer does not appear to recognize Garrido, and even asks him how to pronounce his last name. Police dashcam video of the arrest was released Wednesday, six days after Garrido was sentenced to five days in jail and fined $500. He earlier pleaded guilty to DWI and completed alcohol counseling. UT suspended him for four games because of the arrest. During the traffic stop, Garrido and the officer are polite to one another throughout and repeatedly address each other as sir. Garrido says he's had five glasses of wine over the course of the evening, during which he said he discussed a business deal with former lieutenant governor Ben Barnes and others. Garrido agrees to take a field sobriety test, but has trouble walking heel-to-toe, at one point saying, "I'm staggering." He later says," No, I'm drunk" as he attempted to walk heel-to-toe. The officer responds, "You're drunk, sir?" "No, I'm not admitting that," Garrido said. "What I'm saying is, are you going to arrest me?" The officer conducts several more tests, then tells Garrido he is under arrest for DWI. The officer says Garrido has been a gentleman throughout the stop and puts two pairs of handcuffs on him so his wrists are not hurt. "You just ended a career, you know," Garrido said. "No sir, I did not," the officer responded. "I'm not the one who made a choice to drive and drive tonight."
