Homeless guy busts a cop

It's a man-bites-dog story: After he was detained by police at a shelter, a homeless guy told the officers that he smelled alcohol on one of them.

It turned out that one of the officers' blood alcohol content tested at 0.213 and 0.198, which is more than twice the 0.08 legal limit for driving in Texas. He quit instead of being fired.

Read the Austin American-Statesman report here.

Update: Read Michael's thoughful take on this over at SLO Homeless.
