SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Termination proceedings are underway for a Bexar County Sheriff's Office deputy after his arrest overnight on family violence and resisting arrest charges, according to the sheriff's office.
At approximately 11:41 p.m., on Saturday, July 11, 2020, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the home of 36-year-old Brandon Young for a reported assault.
Upon arrival, police say they observed the victim with facial injuries.
"Deputies attempted to place Young into custody, a struggle ensued, and a Taser was deployed by Deputies to place the suspect into custody," read a statement from the Bexar County Sheriff's Office earlier today.
Young was arrested, charged with assault causes bodily injury/married and resisting arrest, both class A misdemeanors, and booked into the Bexar County Jail.
Young has been employed with the sheriff's office since March 2016 and was assigned to the Detention Bureau. On Friday, July 10, 2020, he was placed on administrative leave for an unrelated incident that occurred at the Adult Detention Center. That incident remains under investigation by the Public Integrity Unit and Internal Affairs, according to the department.
"Following the overnight arrest, Sheriff Salazar initiated termination proceedings in accordance with Bexar County Civil Service Rules for a continuing pattern of misconduct," read a statement from the sheriff's office. "Additionally, the Public Integrity Unit will be conducting a separate but concurrent criminal investigation, while BCSO Internal Affairs will be handling the administrative investigation."
“This suspect’s pattern of misconduct, which culminated in last night’s arrest by BCSO deputies is extremely disturbing," stated Sheriff Javier Salazar. "As is our policy and practice, he is being held fully accountable both administratively and criminally."
