An 18 year old man is accused of attacking a VIA officer after refusing to put out a cigarette at a bust stop. Police said the incident Tuesday at the crossroads Park Mall and ride in Balcones Heights began when a security guard told Emillo Jacob Garcia 18 that VIA prohibits smoking beneath covered bus shelters. Garcia then threatened the guard, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
I have to ask myself what Emillo was experiencing that made him assault a via bus driver. With the economy the way it is & the outlook many of our recent high school and college graduates face you can start to understand the situation.
It’s impossible to justify it, but I can understand the pressures young people today are facing. If you or a family member have been arrested or questioned call me immediately. A tough San Antonio criminal lawyer may be able to take jail time off the table. Call me immediately at 210-227-6425
