The son of the Hidalgo County Sheriff, John Carlos Treviño, walked out of jail after posting a bond stemming from a DWI arrest.
Treviño was charged on Monday for the single-vehicle accident he allegedly caused about three weeks ago in Edinburg on the intersection of Raul Longoria and Trenton roads.
The vehicle destroyed a road sign and crashed into a pole. Treviño was later taken to a hospital for minor injuries. He posted a $3,000 bond.
