Authorities in Texas say a U.S. Marshal was arrested at a strip club early Saturday morning after security reported that he would not leave the establishment when asked.
According to the San Antonio Express News, local law enforcement arrived at the San Antonio establishment at around 5:30 a.m. and encountered 31-year-old Reynaldo Chavera.
Upon conducting a search, officers reportedly found drugs on him, leading to an expected criminal charge of possessing less than a gram of a ‘penalty group one’ controlled substance.
If convicted of the felony drug charge, he could spend two years behind bars.
After interviewing staff at the XTC Cabaret, police reported that security staff held him at the location after he resisted instructions to leave the premises.
As KSAT reported, the U.S. Marshals Service issued a statement via spokesperson Christopher Bozeman acknowledging the arrest and affirming that it “takes seriously any allegation of misconduct by its employees which do not reflect our core values of justice, integrity and service.”
He went on to say that the agency will provide any “information on the alleged arrest” to “the arresting agency.”
