WINNSBORO, TX (KLTV) -

The Winnsboro Police Department arrested Byron Hunter early Sunday morning after he backed over 46-year-old Howard Johnson. Johnson died at the scene. 

Police say both men were leaving a party in the 700 block of Carver Street when the incident happened. The Winnsboro police chief says the incident is not being investigated as a homicide. However, Hunter was arrested for intoxicated manslaughter with a vehicle because alcohol was involved in Johnson's death. 

Hunter is in the Wood County Jail. His bond is set at $100,000.
