MCALLEN, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Security video from the arrest of the son of the Hidalgo County sheriff is now available.
The footage is from the McAllen police department from July 27. Early that morning, John Carlos Treviño was arrested for public intoxication. While being booked, witnesses say he attacked a jailer.
A grand jury declined to press charges last week.
"I don't understand, on the video tape, where you could look at it, how you can say, I'm going to charge an individual with assaulting one of my employees," said Hidalgo County District Attorney Rene Guerra. "In this case, the tape speaks for itself. You can judge it, everybody can judge it. And under the law, it's available to anybody after the case is dismissed by a grand jury."
Treviño is still facing charges of resisting arrest and public intoxication.
