Bexar County deputy arrested on DWI charge
SAN ANTONIO —
The Bexar County Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of a deputy on a DWI charge on Thursday.
According to a statement, Deputy Libmar Rodriguez was arrested at 1 a.m. by San Antonio police and taken into custody. BCSO did not state where the arrest occurred.
Deputy Rodriguez, who is assigned to the Bexar County Adult Detention Center, has been with the agency since September of 2017 and is currently on what is considered "probationary status."
Sheriff Javier Salazar issued the following statement regarding the deputy's arrest:
Command Staff and I are proactively speaking at roll calls on this subject of DWI and off-duty conduct, and it is incorporated into academy and in-service training.
The Deputy Sheriff’s Association of Bexar County (DSABC) is also increasing its messaging regarding its Safe Ride Home Program. It is unfortunate that there are still personnel who fail to heed numerous warnings and continue to drive while intoxicated. This deputy will be held accountable criminally and administratively. We will continue to work with the Deputy Sheriff’s Association on education and prevention efforts.
