Texas Deputy Arrested For Drinking And Popping Pills While Driving Patrol Car

Via the Statesman.com:

Bastrop County Sheriff’s Sgt. James Davenport responded about 8:30 a.m. to a welfare check on Ensinger at the River Chase Mobile Home Park near 143 Navasota St. after Ensinger was heard transmitting over his police radio with slurred speech and not making sense, according to his arrest affidavit.

“Deputy Ensinger was sitting in the driver seat of his patrol unit parked on the street with the engine running and headlights on,” Davenport said in the affidavit. “I then smelled the odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath as I spoke to him.”

Davenport said a search of Ensinger’s county-owned patrol vehicle turned up an open quart-sized bottle of vodka inside the deputy’s open backpack perched atop the passenger’s seat. Along with the open vodka bottle, only a third full, was an empty bottle of prescription medicine, Davenport said in the affidavit.

Ensinger volunteered to a breathalyzer test but declined to offer a blood sample. A search warrant was obtained for a blood sample due to the possible combination of alcohol and prescription medicine, the affidavit said.
