A San Antonio police officer who killed a motorist while responding to a call three years ago was charged with driving while intoxicated Friday after wrecking an undercover police car, internal police documents obtained by the San Antonio Express-News show.

Officer Winder Amedalio Morales, 33, who reportedly was banned from driving patrol cars following his involvement in a 2006 collision that killed a 25-year-old man, told arresting officers Friday he was returning the city vehicle to a police substation after finishing working an undercover drug buy when he crashed.

But police spokesman Sgt. Chris Benavides said Morales was off-duty when he flipped the vehicle, an assertion echoed by Assistant City Manager Erik Walsh.
