Goliad deputy arrested on assault charge

Deputy Roger Capistran, of the Goliad County Sheriff's Office, was arrested and charged with assault on Monday.

The incident occurred while he was off duty, said Goliad Sheriff Kirby Brumby.

When Capistran reported for duty wearing his uniform, his superiors addressed the incident, and he was arrested at that time, the sheriff said.

Capistran is being held at the Goliad County Jail, Brumby said, and is on administrative leave pending a grand jury hearing.
