Didn't dodge the bullet


Not as fortunate.

Bandera deputy quits over DWI charge

The arrest earlier this month of a Bandera County deputy on a drunken driving charge while he was off-duty in Llano County led him to resign rather than being terminated, Bandera County Sheriff Weldon Tucker said Thursday.

He said David Vaught, who had worked for Bandera County about a year, refused a Breathalyzer test after being stopped for allegedly failing to use a turn signal and rolling through a stop sign after leaving a bar.

Tucker said the deputy who stopped Vaught had been called to the bar on a report of an intoxicated person there, and that Vaught was the subject of that call.
