After firing 4 officers for excessive force, San Antonio police chief asks for FBI review
SAN ANTONIO San Antonio Police Chief William McManus has asked the FBI to conduct an independent review of two police encounters after he indefinitely suspended four officers within weeks of each other. Another man, Eddie Wilson, came out of the house to talk to the officers, according to the report. Officers told Eddie Wilson to stay away and warned him of hindering their arrest of Eric Wilson, according to the report. As officers took Eddie Wilson into custody, Eric Wilson walked into the home and closed the door on the police officers, according to the police report. Two officers were fired after beating Eric Wilson, who was arrested on drug charges in January.
Accused drunken driver had slurred speech, breath 'smelled of intoxicants': SAPD says
Villarreal testified Wednesday during Cantu's trial on felony murder charges. "As I was having a conversation with him trying to gather information, I could smell intoxicants coming from his breath," Villarreal testified. "As I was asking him for information, I could tell he had a slurred speech, and he was unsteady on his feet," Villarreal said. Villarreal said he also saw beer cans in Cantu's truck as it was being towed from the scene. Since the crash was a fatality, the charges against him were upgraded to felony murder.
