According to Texas law, an Intoxication Assault involves a person who commits an offense if the person, by accident or mistake, operates a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated, by reason of that intoxication causes serious bodily injury to another. Serious bodily injury means an injury that creates a substantial risk of death or that causes serious permanent disfigurement or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ.
