Early Sunday morning off-duty deputy, Johnny Garcia, was arrested for driving while intoxicated. Garcia is a 12 year veteran with the Sheriff’s Office . He was pulled over at 2:57 am while driving on Texas 151. According to the MySanAntonio.com article, Garcia was pulled over by the BCSO Traffic Safety Unit.
Deputy Garcia was arrested and was able to post a $1,250 bond. He has since been placed on administrative leave. The article doesn’t give any information on the alcohol content in Garcia’s system. Sheriff Javier Salazar gave his usual song and dance about it being unacceptable but you would think even he could see that his words are worthless. I’m beginning to think that he is doing more to drive them to drink than he is to help stop this situation.
