Authorities on Monday afternoon arrested a Texas Department of Public Safety employee suspected of accepting cash in exchange for falsifying commercial driver's license tests.

Parra, a driver's license technician, has been suspended with pay pending an internal investigation, said DPS spokeswoman Tela Mange.
