San Antonio Police Lt. Lee Rakun has staved off his second dismissal from the department — his 14th suspension overall in a 17-year career — and this time, he said, he will not mess it up.
“This is my last debacle for me,” said Rakun, 42.
Police Chief William McManus fired him on Sept. 9 for lying to internal affairs investigators, disobeying an order and failing to report a crime. The discipline followed an investigation into a domestic disturbance between Rakun and his then-girlfriend, Norma Sanchez, both of whom unleashed a torrent of accusations, each claiming abuse by the other.
