SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — San Antonio City Council will today decide on whether or not to ask one of their colleagues to resign.
District 10 Councilman Clayton Perry is suspected of a hit and run crash that damaged another vehicle near his home last Sunday night.
He’s been charged with failure to stop and provide information resulting in damages to a vehicle over $200.
That’s a Class B misdemeanor with Perry facing 180 days in jail and fines of up to $2,000 if he’s found guilty.
A San Antonio Police Officer who responded to the crash found Perry lying on the ground in his backyard, confused, disheveled, smelling of alcohol and he had an injury to his head.
Perry denied being behind the wheel but a witness was able to follow the Councilman to his home after the crash.
Then Thursday, after Perry turned himself in at the courthouse, SAPD released the responding officer’s body cam video which showed his interaction with Perry.
The next day, SAPD said it will file a DWI charge against Perry.
An agenda sent out by city council for Monday’s meeting showed they plan to not only ask Perry to resign from city council but they will also vote on whether or not to issue a “no confidence” in him.
Council can’t remove Perry from his seat but if he is convicted, he would have to resign voluntarily.
Monday’s meeting is scheduled to begin at 1:30 P.M.
