SAN ANTONIO – An off-duty Bexar County sheriff’s deputy is facing possible termination after being arrested for drunk driving, according to the sheriff’s office.
Aracely Miranda, 40, was arrested at 11:49 p.m. Saturday by San Antonio police and is charged with driving while intoxicated, a Class B misdemeanor, according to authorities.
Her bond was set at $1,500, court records show.
Miranda has served with the sheriff’s office for 11 years and is assigned to the Law Enforcement Bureau.
Following her arrest, she has been issued a notice of proposed dismissal and was placed on unpaid administrative leave pending the termination for the “arrest in accordance with BCSO policies and procedures.”
A separate administrative investigation is ongoing, pending the outcome of Miranda’s criminal case, the BCSO said.
Additionally, court records show that Miranda has had a history of drunk driving with an arrest for DWI with a blood concentration over 0.15 or higher in January 2013. The legal limit in Texas is 0.08. However, her case was dismissed later that year.
