Central Texas Sheriff Deputy Drunk on Duty, Resigns
"Due to medical issues, I am no longer able to serve in the capacity of patrol deputy at this time,” Fred Ensinger wrote in his March 29th resignation letter from The Bastrop County Sheriff's Department.
Earlier this year, after communicating with police over the radio and reportedly 'not making sense and having slurred speech, Mr. Ensinger was arrested and charged with a DWI.
Police found an open bottle of vodka, and an empty prescription bottle in his patrol vehicle, after finding the Deputy parked near a mobile home park with the engine running and the headlights on.
Fred Ensinger, 43, also unsuccessfully ran as a Republican for County Commissioner.
