SAN ANTONIO – “He doesn't even own a Mercedes.”
That's what the Bexar County Sheriff's Office is saying about an allegation that Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz was stopped for driving drunk.
The office released a statement Thursday afternoon after the San Antonio Lightning - a local internet site - reported that the sheriff had been "Popped for a DWI" then driven home by a cop. The report claims that the sheriff was driving erratically, was driven home by police and that he abandoned his Mercedes on the side of the road.
The sheriff's office disputes the allegations, saying not only does the sheriff not own a Mercedes, he was home at the time of the alleged stop.
