Veronica Salmeron: HPD Cop Breaks Up with HPD Cop, Gets Tased
Get the lawn chairs!!!
Bad Cop Break-Ups, Part II: Earlier today we told you about a bad break-up between Galena Park cops. This one concerns HPD.
It doesn't involve nude pictures, but it does involve a cop getting tased.
KPRC reports that Houston cop Veronica Salmeron, 25, has been charged with criminal mischief after breaking windows at her former boyfriend's home. The ex is also an HPD cop.
Court documents show she took a lawn chair to the guy's car windows, and then did the same to the front windows of the house.
She apparently was upset at the end of the relationship, and figured this was the best way to get him back.
From there the story gets a little murky, and court documents don't do much to clear it up: KPRC says Salmeron got in the house and locked herself in the bathroom -- again, a top-notch relationship-restoring move -- and her ex then tased her. (Through the window? Unclear.)
The ex then called 911. He has not been charged with anything, but Salmeron, a two-year HPD vet, "has been relieved of duty pending the outcome of an internal affairs investigation," the station reports.
