Officer Craig Martin
An Austin police sergeant has been arrested twice in the past few weeks after Central Texas law enforcement agencies say he was inhaling substances.
Cedar Park police arrested and charged Sgt. Craig Martin, at right, early Tuesday with illegal use or inhaling glue or paint, sheriff’s spokesman John Foster said. He was booked into the Williamson County Jail but has since been released on bail.
No other details were immediately available.
Martin also was arrested about 3 p.m. Dec. 16 by Kyle police, city spokesman Jerry Hendrix said.
Hendrix said that officers were dispatched to a Lowe’s parking lot on Dec. 16 after receiving a report that a man was ingesting a substance from an aerosol can. He was charged with illegal possession and use of glue or paint.
Martin currently is assigned to supervise detectives in South-Central Austin. He has been placed on restricted duty.
Police Chief Art Acevedo said he is disappointed by the arrest of Martin and officer Leonardo Quintana, who was arrested and charged with drunken driving early Tuesday in Williamson County.
Acevedo said the department has numerous services available for officers and that “there is really no excuse for that type of behavior.”
