Officers Who Arrested Blotto O'Rourke for Drunk Driving: Despite Blotto's Denials, He Did In Fact Attempt to Flee the Scene of a DUI-Caused Collision

As a tipster says: "Coincidence!"

What he means is that these officers were also available for the media to talk to when Blotto was running against a Republican, Ted Cruz, in 2018.

Strange that the media only gets around to digging up dirt on Democrats when they're running against other Democrats (who themselves have media supporters).

An awful lot of dirt is coming out only now -- only now do Joe Biden's accusers come forward, for example.

The former police officer who arrested Beto O'Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused.

O'Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee.

...

"I believe we have contradicting stories here," said Carrera, who arrested the 26-year-old O'Rourke and took him to a police station to undergo a breath test. "I stand by my report."

Carrera, 49, said after reading the police report, in which an unnamed witness claimed O'Rourke tried to flee in his Volvo, he has "no doubt that he tried to leave the scene."
