John Carlos Trevio is out on bond but he is no stranger to law enforcement.
The 36-year-old man is one of Hidalgo County Sheriff's Lupe Trevio's three sons.
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.
But public records show that it's not John Carlos Trevio's first brush with the law.
A McAllen police report obtained by Action 4 News show that John Carlos Trevio was previously arrested back on July 26th, 2010.
According to the report, Trevio was drunk and disorderly in McAllen's 17th Street entertainment district.
An officer found him swaying and holding onto a chain link fence behind El Patio just moments after getting kicked out of nearby Lumen.
The bouncer at Lumen told the officer that Trevio got kicked out of the club and threatened to come back and beat him up.
Trevio allegedly resisted arrested but was ultimately charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
The Class C misdemeanors were handled at the McAllen Municipal Court without any further consequences.
State records show that John Carlos Trevio is a licensed peace officer and was a Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office reserve deputy at the time the two incidents.
Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education (TCLEOSE) records show Trevio became a reserve deputy for his father's agency in August 2009.
Trevio spent close to three and a half years as a reserve deputy until ending his service in March 2013.
The Class C misdemeanor arrests in McAllen did not affect his peace officer's license.
Under Texas state law, only convictions of a Class B misdemeanor or higher can result in a peace officer's license being taken away.
Trevio's service as a reserve deputy also overlapped with Trevio's job working as a multimedia coordinator with Hidalgo County.
Records show that Trevio had the county job between April 2007 and August 2012 making $60,949 per year.
An Edinburg police report obtained by Action 4 News show that John Carlos Trevio got into an auto accident while driving a county vehicle.
The accident happened off McColl Road and University Drive back in March 2012.
Trevio was making a left turn onto University Drive when he lost control, jumped a concrete median and hit a car waiting for a red light.
No major injuries were reported but investigators believe speed played a factor in the accident.
Although it's procedure for county employees to undergo a drug test following an accident in a county vehicle, there is no known record to show that Trevio took one.
