Bexar County DA's Office not pursuing family violence charge against deputy

The deputy, whose name has not been released, was assigned to the Law Enforcement Bureau, Patrol Division.

SAN ANTONIO — Update: The Bexar County District Attorney's Office will not pursue charges against a deputy with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office following a family disturbance early Monday morning, according to BCSO.

The identity of the deputy has not been released. 

It happened around 1 a.m. on the city's north side. 

The deputy was assigned to the Law Enforcement Bureau, Patrol Division, and has been employed with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office since January of 2008.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office Internal Affairs and Public Integrity Units said they are investigating this incident.

“Our employees are constantly trained and reminded of our strong stance regarding Family Violence and off-duty conduct. When that point is still not taken and an incident occurs, we have to act in the interest of justice. I’m extremely disappointed in this employee’s alleged misconduct, but proud of the way deputies, supervisors, and investigators on scene made the right call," said Sheriff Javier Salazar.

The Deputy has been placed on unpaid administrative leave following the arrest for the off-duty assault.

This is the 15th BCSO Deputy arrest to take place this year.
