An off-duty Bexar County sheriff’s corporal was arrested early Saturday after being accused of damaging a door when she showed up at a residence and no one answered.
Adelina Agosto, a 17-year veteran of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, has been charged with criminal mischief greater than $100 and less than $750, a Class B misdemeanor.
Agosto, 41, is accused of “drunkenly destroying” the door when it wasn’t answered, according to a news release from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. San Antonio police arrested her after responding to a 911 call from the person inside the residence, who believed someone was trying to break in, according to the sheriff’s office.
She has been served termination paperwork and is currently on unpaid administrative leave.
Sheriff Javier Salazar condemned her behavior in a statement released by the sheriff’s office.
“In my opinion, this tenured corporal choosing to drunkenly destroying the property of another is no better than the criminals we are sworn to guard society against,” Salazar said. “I personally believe she has no place in this profession, and she will soon have no place in this agency.”
Bexar County said a “separate but concurrent administrative investigation is underway.”
