"Poteet officer in snoozing case is reinstated"

Perhaps you can get away with speeding in Poteet. You just have to be at the right place at the right time.

From the Express-News:

POTEET — City leaders here agreed that fired Officer Justin Sadler violated policy when he allegedly was caught dozing off in his patrol car, but decided Wednesday to reinstate him to the police force anyway.

The City Council voted unanimously to overturn Police Chief Henry Dominguez's decision to terminate Sadler in October after the chief claimed he spotted Sadler napping while parked in front of the Police Department.

The council didn't give a reason for the decision, and Mayor Lino Donato declined to discuss the issue afterward.

Poteet is a small town south of San Antonio, and it is known for its annual Strawberry Festival.
