The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for drunken driving in 1998 has no doubt the incident report he filed on the crash is accurate.

O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman who ran for Senate in 2018 and is running for president in 2020, claimed at a debate against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, last year that he did not leave the scene of a crash while he was intoxicated.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I did not try to leave the scene of the accident, though driving drunk, which I did, is a terrible mistake for which there is no excuse or justification or defense, and I will not try to provide one,” he said about the 1998 crash.

Richard Carrera, the officer who arrested the then-26-year-old O’Rourke and is now retired, told the Texas Tribune he remembers the incident differently.

“I believe we have contradicting stories here,” he said. “I stand by my report.”
