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
If you had been involved in this incident, I suspect we would know all the names and all the nasty details would have been made very public by now. Some of us are more equal than others. It takes until January to investigate this? Do they hope we will all forget about this by January?
Since most of the details and names are now on the street in San Marcos, how about an official statement from the SO or the SMPD. I noticed that the SMPD didn’t hesitate to tell the press all about the disruption at the Dunbar meeting regarding the Sesoms street project. Brad, how about giving them a call and let us know what they say.
I am just curious if any person has been arrested for this. I know that if it was you or me someone would have been placed under arrest and identities given up. It’s funny how they cover up their own and hope that everyone forgets about this. I believe we have a right to know who we are paying to act so unprofessional that think they are above the law.
Were the names of the involved parties ever released by the SMPD? Brad, could you follow up on this please?
Last time I looked them up — within the last month — charges against both defendants were still pending and trial dates have not been set for either.
