Not this time, Bubba

This time a federal professional in San Antonio gets busted:
A federal agent booked for drunk driving Sunday refused to submit to a breath test because he said a lawyer couldn't win his case with the results, a San Antonio police report said.


Serna, who told the officer he was a federal agent with the Department of Homeland Security, said he couldn't perform any "walk and turn" sobriety tests because he suffered a leg injury in January, according to the report.

The agent's story about his destination changed several times. Serna finally told the officer he was en route to his girlfriend's home after leaving a nightclub where he said he drank three beers from 11 p.m. until last call, the report said.

Serna advised the officer to let him go but agreed to give him his keys so he couldn't drive intoxicated. He also told the officer he had family who worked for the San Antonio Police Department and that "he was to be released," the report said.

He later asked the officer to charge him with public intoxication so he wouldn't lose his job, the report said. The officer instructed him not to drink and drive. He also ticketed Serna for speeding, no insurance and a driver's license violation.
Maybe they'll still let him drive the golf cart at Walmart, but I wouldn't count on it.
