Nevada detective fired for driving patrol car drunk with alcohol and guns inside: report

A Nevada police officer has reportedly been fired after driving a police car drunk with a bottle of liquor and a gun found inside.

Mesquite Police Department. Gustavo Garcia, 35, was pulled over by an unmarked police car in Kingman, Arizona after receiving a call that he was driving 30 mph on a 65 speed limit highway. Reported by KVVU-TV.

According to a report from the Arizona Department of Public Safety obtained by the outlet, Garcia “staggered” when he got out of his car and had trouble “keeping his balance.”

Another officer reportedly prevented Garcia from falling, and a blood test showed his blood alcohol level was .24, which is three times the legal limit.

A bottle of Jagermeister Cold Brew coffee and a full bottle of Jagermeister liqueur were found inside a Chevrolet Equinox, an “authority-issued unmarked patrol vehicle for the City of Mesquite,” it said.

Two guns, a Glock 17 9mm service weapon and a Glock 19 pistol, believed to be Garcia’s personal belongings, were also found inside the vehicle.

“Following the completion of an internal investigation, Garcia was dismissed on Monday, January 9,” Mesquite Police Sergeant Wyatt Oliver told KVVU-TV in a statement.

In a statement after Garcia was arrested for DUI in November, Mesquite Police Chief Makade Chesley said in a statement, “Whenever an officer commits a crime, it is unacceptable, hurtful and highly discouraging.

“Their actions not only betray the public’s trust, they damage the reputation of our entire profession.”
