Granbury Mayor Submits Letter of Resignation Following DWI Arrest – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
Granbury Mayor Ninnian “Nin” Hulett tabled his resignation letter following an arrest in April.
The 68-year-old Hulett was arrested by Granbury police after midnight on April 25 after police received a report from a drunk person who left a local restaurant.
The officers stopped his red truck nearby on suspicion of driving drunk and not maintaining a single lane, and Hulett was arrested on DWI charges, the city said. He posted a bond and was released from Hood County Jail hours later.
On Monday, prosecutors upgraded the drunk-driving charge to a crime after discovering that Hulett had previously made two DWI arrests.
Hulett filed a letter of resignation and Granbury town council intends to meet on Monday to adopt it according to the town’s agenda.
In Thursday’s letter, Hulett said he was “really grateful for the opportunity to serve my city over the past decade.”
The city council will also consider ordering a June 29 special election to fill his seat.
Hulett was first elected mayor in 2013 and was last reelected for a three-year term in November 2019.
Records show that Hulett was arrested in Fort Worth in 2007 for DWI after he was involved in an accident on Southeast Loop 820. His blood alcohol was 0.122 percent, more than double the Texas legal limit of 0.08 percent. He was fined and given two years probation, records show.
He was arrested in Missouri in 1999 on a DWI charge.
