    The Midland Reporter-Telegram reported Wednesday that 31-year-old Brandon Leigh Watson was released from jail last week after posting bond of $1,500.

    He was arrested March 27 on a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated, his second, and two misdemeanor charges of failure to stop and give notice after striking an unattended vehicle.

    Watson is a driller on "Black Gold," which follows rigs in West Texas.

    Midland police say he was arrested after becoming argumentative and uncooperative at one of the three hit-and-run accidents.

    Efforts to reach Watson for comment were unsuccessful.
