Officer steps out

Officer charged in November DWI resigns

A San Antonio police officer charged in November with driving while intoxicated after he crashed a city-owned vehicle into a highway median has resigned.

Winder Morales, 33, resigned Tuesday before a meeting with Chief William McManus and the disciplinary review board about an internal investigation, said Sgt. Chris Benavides, a department spokesman.

Jesus David Garza, Morales' attorney handling both the criminal and administrative cases, said his client denies all charges against him, including an article published in the San Antonio Express-News that reported sources said Morales received guidance from his supervisors at the time of the crash on how to get out of the DWI.
