FORT WORTH — The medical examiner says an off-duty Fort Worth Police Department officer’s blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit when he was involved in a crash that killed a woman.
Results released Thursday indicate the blood-alcohol level for Jesus Cisneros was .17 at the time of the fatal collision Dec. 11. The legal limit in Texas is .08.
Fort Worth police say they are now trying to determine how fast Cisneros was driving in his unmarked car and will investigate the crash as an intoxication manslaughter case.
The narcotics officer has not been charged but is now on restricted duty.
