This is an update to the story I wrote about last week involving the man who drove into a house.
It turns out, he was an off-duty Fort Worth Police officer, and he was drunk. His blood alcohol level was more than two times the legal limit at the time of the crash.
Officer Michael Buchanan, turned in his letter of resignation yesterday in light of the accident.
This is the second high-profile crash caused by drunk Fort Worth cops in the last 6 months. In December, Officer Jesus Cisneros, caused a wreck that killed local resident Sonia Baker. I previously posted about that wreck HERE and HERE
These officers need to be punished. They are entrusted with the responsibility of protecting our city’s residents and they’re driving around drunk and injuring and killing innocent people. This needs to stop.
That is why I support the efforts of MADD and other organizations who work to prevent this terrible accidents and help the victims and their families get the medical and legal care they need.
