SAN ANTONIO – An off-duty Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputy who was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of reckless driving has been fired, according to a news release.

Garcia was served with an order of dismissal for failure to perform satisfactorily during her probationary period, the news release said.

“The employee chose her actions poorly and will face consequences," Sheriff Javier Salazar said in a statement earlier Monday.

Garcia, who has been with the sheriff’s office since October 2018, was arrested at 11:51 p.m. by a San Antonio police officer.

She was assigned to the Detention Bureau’s Jail Annex.

The BCSO Internal Affairs Unit will be conducting a separate but concurrent administrative investigation into this incident.

Her bail was set at $500 for the Class-B misdemeanor.
