Bexar jail corporal arrested in domestic violence incident

January 2, 2019

An off-duty Bexar County sheriff’s detention corporal, who has been on administrative duty since September 2017 for a domestic disturbance incident, was arrested by his own office Tuesday night for another domestic violence incident.

The corporal, whose name was withheld pending magistration, has been with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office since November 2014, and was arrested at 7:40 p.m. for assault bodily injury — married, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

The release said Sheriff Javier Salazar served the corporal with a notice of proposed termination, in accordance with Civil Service rules, for violation of the Texas Penal Code and for “a continuing pattern of conduct that seriously impairs job effectiveness, and for the detrimental effect it brings to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.”

BCSO Internal Affairs began an administrative investigation into the latest incident, pending further criminal investigation by the Public Integrity Unit.

“Misconduct will not be tolerated, especially when a clear cut pattern of misbehavior is apparent,” Salazar said. “Once probable cause was established, I made the determination to immediately arrest this employee and initiate termination proceedings.”
