Officer accused of Hit-and-Run required to wear alcohol monitoring bracelet

las-vegas-pd-badgeAntonio Munoz Jr., a Las Vegas Police Officer, was arrested for allegedly hitting three vehicles while driving under the influence. The accidents occurred along a stretch of the northbound I-15. Munoz was pulled over by Nevada Highway Patrol for an unrelated traffic infraction when the officer noticed damage to his vehicle. At that time the officer arrested Munoz believing that he had been involved in the three earlier hit-and-run’s that left one person with serious injuries. Munoz’s blood alcohol level was .13% following his arrest. Bail was set at $100,000. A Clark County judge is requiring Munoz to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet and not drive if he is released from jail while awaiting trial. Munoz is a 16-year veteran with the Metropolitan Police Department.
