Son of Texas sheriff who called undocumented immigrants ‘drunks’ arrested for public intoxication

New York Daily News 1 month ago

Last week, a Texas sheriff accused undocumented immigrants of being “drunks.” A day later, his son was arrested for public intoxication.

Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn appeared at a White House event Thursday to oppose a court ruling affecting immigrants charged with driving under the influence and, standing next to the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, argued that repeat offenders are more dangerous.

“If we have to turn them loose or they get released, they’re coming back to your neighborhood and my neighborhood,” he said. “Those drunks will run over your children and they will run over my children.”

Calls for Waybourn’s resignation came quickly, including from the national League of United Latin American Citizens president.

On Friday, a day after Waybourn’s speech, his adopted son, Sergei, was arrested near AT&T Stadium in Arlington and charged with public intoxication and indecent exposure, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“The family and I are deeply saddened by Sergei’s choices," Sheriff Waybourn said in a statement to WFAA Saturday. "It has been many years since he disassociated from our family. We, along with many family members have made efforts over the years to help him - all to no avail. It is always sad when drugs take control of a person’s life. His choices and actions have lead to this situation.”
