SAN ANTONIO – A North East Side District Police Officer was arrested for driving while intoxicated Sunday morning.
A district official confirmed the arrest.
According to Bexar County Magistrate, Juan Antonio Pacheco Jr. was arrested just before 3 a.m. for driving while intoxicated with a blood alcohol level 0.15 or higher.
The legal limit in Texas is .08 BAC (blood or breath alcohol concentration), so it is possible that Pacheco Jr. was twice the legal limit.
Pacheco Jr. was put on leave by the district.
