A former Houston police officer was in court Monday to face a DWI charge. He is the same man that drove his SUV through the front of a lighting store last Friday.

Harold Clayton Jr. was arrested at his home last week after he was caught on tape driving through the north Houston storefront of the Lighting Gallery on FM 1960 at Champions Drive. But Clayton was in court Monday for a prior DWI charge.

The judge imposed several conditions to Clayton's bond, including no alcohol and no driving, and he must get a substance abuse evaluation.

Clayton, 59, charged with DWI and failure to stop and give information.
