Mike Wiggins: Guadalupe County Judge, Former DPS Officer, Caught with Weed in Hotel
Mike Wiggins, Guadalupe County Judge and a former DPS sergeant, has been arrested for having weed in a College Station hotel room.
Wiggins, a Republican first elected in 2006 to lead the county, which is east of New Braunfels, was attending a convention there when the cops were called because a staffer smelled burning marijuana about 11 p.m. Monday.
Cops found a silver grinder, rolling papers and a plastic bag containing 20.1 grams of dope in Wiggins's duffel bag after he consented to a search.
Wiggins, who also served as Seguin's Department of Public Safety sergeant, said Thursday afternoon that there was nothing he could deny.
"It is what it is," he said.
Party on, Guadalupe.
