It’s been nearly a week since San Antonio District 2 Councilman Alan Warrick woke up on a bench outside city hall with no recollection of how it happened.
Warrick told KTSA News he went to a birthday party last Thursday night at On the Rocks Pub and doesn’t remember what else happened that evening. He said he woke up around 6 a.m., called a cab and then started his day. He did not seek medical care or call the police.
“I had to go the funeral services for fallen firefighter Scott Deem and just wanted to make sure that that commitment was kept, as well as all the other commitments I had for that day,” Warrick said.
He doesn’t believe the ordeal is affecting his chances of being re-elected.
“I’m sure there are people that may feel a little differently about my leadership but I’m assuming that the majority of those were already on the other side,” Warrick said.
The councilman originally sent out a statement saying he believed someone slipped something in one of his drinks, but later took to Facebook to say he’d just had too much to drink.
