A Bexar County Sheriff's Office dispatcher has been terminated following multiple DWI arrests, according to a news release.

Vanessa Flores, 39, was arrested shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday for driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.15, a misdemeanor, BCSO reported. Flores was not on duty at the time.

She was previously arrested in 2011 for driving while intoxicated, leading to a 2013 conviction for obstructing a highway while intoxicated, authorities said.

Flores was placed on administrative leave and served a notice of proposed dismissal by Sheriff Javier Salazar, according to BCSO. She had been employed as a dispatcher since 2006 at the county's Public Safety Communications Center.

In a statement, Salazar said Flores' actions and choices had "brought us to this point."

"Her past history has clearly demonstrated a lack of accountability in the past," Salazar wrote. "As I've stated before, any employee who decides to put the community at risk by driving while intoxicated will not be tolerated and will do all that is within my power to separate them from this agency in order to maintain the integrity of the Sheriff's Office."

The BSCO Internal Affairs Unit will also be conducting an investigation.

So far this year, 19 BSCO employees, all deputies, have been arrested.
