Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “A reporter tracked down the cops who stopped Beto O'Rourke for DWI and it could be a problem for the 2020 hopeful”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

It appears 2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke is lying about not fleeing the scene after he was pulled over for DWI in 1998: For the first time, @byjayroot has tracked down the officers at the scene of Beto O’Rourke’s 1998 DWI crash. They stand by their report that he tried to flee the scene, which O’Rourke denies. https://t.co/tjCBniJdS7 — Emily Ramshaw (@eramshaw) April 24, 2019

This would be better if the investigating officer and his supervisor remembered the incident, but nevertheless, they’re standing by the report. From the Texas Tribune: Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate. “I believe we have contradicting stories here,” said Carrera, who arrested the 26-year-old O’Rourke and took him to a police station to undergo a breath test. “I stand by my report.” Carrera, 49, said after reading the police report, in which an unnamed witness claimed O’Rourke tried to flee in his Volvo, he has “no doubt that he tried to leave the scene.”
