Wal-Mart heiress regrets DWI charge

Wal-Mart heiress, Alice Walton, is accepting responsibility for the drunken driving charge that put her in a North Texas jail last month.

She was returning home following a dinner, celebrating her 62nd birthday, in Fort Worth when she was pulled over by a state trooper.

Walton was driving 71 mph in a 55-mph construction zone on Interstate 20.

She failed a field sobriety test and then refused a breath test, according to the trooper.

She was convicted of DWI in an Arkansas municipal court in 1998 after she drove her sport-utility vehicle off a road in Springdale and crashed – she had a blood-alcohol level of .16.
