The drunk driving woes continue in the Bexar County Sheriff's Department, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
An off duty deputy, a Corporal who is a six year veteran of the BCOS who is assigned as a detention officer at the County Jail, was pulled over by SAPD on I-10 and charged with drunk driving.
The officer, identified as Ryan Ferrell, 29, has been placed on administrative duty pending an investigation into the case, and an administrative decision by Sheriff Javier Salazar.
It is obvious that Salazar is not playing games when it comes to deputies arrested for DWI or domestic violence. There have been more than two dozen arrested on these charges in the past 15 months. The Sheriff revealed that he fired three BCSO employees for alcohol related incidents just int he past month.
"I will continue my strong stance on discipline and accountability," Salazar said.
