A Hidalgo County jury has no billed the son of Sheriff Lupe Trevio for a felony crime while two other misdemeanor charges against him remain pending.

McAllen police arrested John Carlos Trevio for public intoxication, resisting arrest and assault of a public servant back on July 27th.

Officers allegedly found him drunk banging on doors of homes off North 40th Street.

Trevio faced a McAllen Municipal Court judge where he was issued $14,150 dollars in bonds.

McAllen police took Trevio to the Hidalgo County Jail where he spent about 42 minutes before being released on bond.

The arrest took place while Trevio's brother Jonathan Christian Trevio is out on bond and awaiting sentencing for his role in the Panama Unit corruption scandal.

Sheriff Trevio told Action 4 News in a previous interview that his son's actions are not relevant nor are they a reflection of the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office.

Hidalgo County District Attorney Rene Guerra told Action 4 News on Wednesday that a grand jury decided to "no bill" Trevio on the assault of a public servant charge meaning it will be dismissed.

Guerra said a public intoxication charge against Trevio remains pending in McAllen Municipal Court.

The Class B misdemeanor resisting arrest charge remains pending before the Hidalgo County District Attorney's Office where Guerra said a special prosecutor will be appointed for the case.
