A alleged “road rage” incident on Wednesday resulted in a City of San Marcos police officer being placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.
The Hays County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a criminal investigation into the matter and is seeking witnesses to the event, which occurred between 5:15 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Ranch Road 12 between San Marcos and Wimberley.
Chief Howard Williams of the San Marcos Police Department said the incident involved a former SMPD officer and a current SMPD officer. Williams said he cannot offer details about the incident due to the ongoing internal investigation, which he said may be complete in January.
The Sheriff’s Office has declined to release the makes and models of the vehicles involved in the incident. Witnesses to the event may contact the Hays County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at (512) 393-7814.Email | Print
