    SAN ANTONIO -- A Bexar County Sheriff's Office deputy has been arrested on an assault charge, marking the third deputy arrested this week.

    The part-time, off-duty detention deputy was arrested early Sunday morning on a family assault charge and she will be terminated immediately, according to the sheriff's office. A spokesperson said Salazar personally went to the magistrate's office to terminate Santos.

    The deputy has been identified as 28-year-old Aida Santos. Santos has been a Bexar County Sheriff's Office deputy since January 2017.

    Sheriff Javier Salazar released the following statement:

    “My practice is to handle each case as swiftly and severely as is allowable by law. To maintain the integrity of this organization, we will continue to do so, and additionally, will be announcing more proactive steps on Monday morning.”

    Sunday's arrest marks the third deputy arrest this week. On Wednesday, Tavian Gloeckler, 23, got into a disagreement with a 36-year-old inmate and assaulted him. Gloeckler took his uniform top off and attacked the inmate, beginning a fight. The inmate got the upper-hand and Gloeckler surrendered, Salazar said. Salazar said Gloeckler threatened the inmate and told him he would face new charges if he said anything, but a video captured the fight. Neither man "exhibited outward signs of injury" after the fight.

    On Friday, Corporal Kailin Kruger, 26, was arrested shortly before 3 a.m. by the San Antonio Police Department on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Other details of the incident were not provided. A BCSO statement said Kruger has worked with the agency since 2015 and was currently assigned to the jail as a detention officer. She was also a member of the agency's SERT team. She was put on administrative leave pending further investigation.
