DPS Swat Sergeant and Certified Breath Test Operator Jose Osornio Ironically Busted for Drunk-Driving
Cedar Park, Texas
Here’s a case of irony for you. A sergeant with the Texas Department of Public Safety SWAT team, who just happens to be a certified DWI breath test operator, was suspended with pay this week after Cedar Park police arrested him for drunk-driving.
According to an arrest affidavit, police stopped 27-year-old Jose E. Osornio on Saturday in the 2500 block of Vista Oaks Drive after he violated various traffic codes.
Osornio told police that he came from a bar called the Wild West where he had two beers and was on his way to his friend’s home, though he could not tell police where his friend’s home was, the document said.
He admitted to closing the bar down at 2 a.m.
Osornio, who has been with DPS since 2008, was suspended Monday.
Police said in the affidavit that Osornio had watery, bloodshot eyes with dilated pupils and a strong alcohol odor coming from his breath. His attitude was described as cocky, the affidavit stated.
Osornio was released from the Travis County Jail later Saturday, according to jail records. His bail was set at $2,000.
