Intoxicated assault with motor vehicle
Candice Schwager, the woman who threatened to sue local photographer Jay Lee after she used his copyrighted photo without permission, has been charged with intoxicated assault with a motor vehicle.

Schwager, 41, allegedly drove her vehicle into a motorcycle June 16, injuring the bike's female passenger, and then fled the scene, according to court records. The incident occurred in the 800 block of West NASA Parkway, according to a Webster Police Department report. The report also states that police observed "two unidentified circular white pills" and a prescription pill bottle in Schwager's vehicle.

Schwager was released on $10,000 bond. Schwager pleaded no contest to DWI in 1998, was sentenced to three days in jail (with three days' credit) and ordered to pay a $1,500 fine, records show.

We weren't able to reach Schwager, but we reached her husband, Richard, who asked how we got his number and then promptly hung up. (We're guessing he was busy attending an Awesome Husbands of America meeting with Rusty Yates).

We'll update accordingly.

Horrible how it's always the innocent that get hurt by the DRUNK driver. Makes me sick to my stomach! Prayers for the Martinez Family :)

neither has any of the other sock puppet accounts used by Schwager---tho, I am certain she is better off keeping quiet at this point, how can she even begin to defend what she has done to Victor and Shannon...  Its also worth mentioning that in a recent Big Jolly blog post, Guthrie claimed Schwager was only part of the campaign for a month or so at the beginning.  However, Guthrie4Sheriff has taken their twitter account offline after they had to admit that Schwager had been in control of the twitter account and most of the tweets were coming from Schwager herself--its hard to say she wasn't really part of the campaign or an official representative when she was Social Media spokesman/coordinator and the twitter feed proved it.   Also, the sock puppet that defended her in the comments above apparently got her comments scrubbed and her name and handles removed from other comments as well. Guilt, shame or embarrassment from her comments--or all three?     For those that haven't yet, I encourage everyone to forward or tweet the link to Victor and Shannon's blog and I hope that everyone will continue to support them in any way they can!

14,000 results on Bing for Candice Schwager and this is the first one. Kind of reminds me of the Santorum neologsm.

Interesting how FairyViviann hasn't posted any hate speech on twitter since the 15th...

Just don't ask her about her special needs kids.  The entire Texas School System has been after her poor boy since he was a zygote.

Jay Lee seems to have stepped up and offered help to the victims in a comment on the Victor and Shannon blog.  This could get big.

Shannon,  I saw your update yesterday evening.  I am very happy for you that Victor is making progress, especially on your birthday. baby steps or big steps are all the same as long as it is steps forward!  Your strength is amazing and inspiring, hang in there, and when it is real quiet, don't think about the horrible of that day, but rather listen for the many prayers for you and Victor, let the love and positive energy being sent your way give you strength and resolve to find each day better then the last.

 Maybe shitty things happened to Candice. Copyright, internet vigilantes, victim complex, unwarranted self importance, etcetera... Drinking may be a way to cope with shitty things, sure. I'll buy driven to drink. That doesn't change the fact that she went out to drink and then brought tremendous injuries to others because she drove herself around while drunk. There are such people as responsible drunks. We take taxis and when we desperately drink our problems away, we do it in the safety of our own damned homes.

THANK YOU... you are so correct... I can't sleep at night without reliving her hitting us over and over again... or reliving the sight of the LOVE of my life laying in his own puddle of blood.... yeah she definatly has done some damage to us both... or the fact that my boyfriend lays in a hospital bed unable to speak to me or touch me.
