4/18/2019 - Grand jury indicts man for shooting that killed BCSO K9 Chucky

A Bexar County grand jury returned multiple indictments on charges connected to a January 25, 2019, shooting that left Chucky, a Bexar County Sheriff's Office K9, dead from injuries suffered in the incident.

One of indictments alleges that Matthew Mireles committed the offense of interfering with a police service animal by killing him with a firearm. A second indictment alleges that Mireles pointed a firearm at 8 police officers, for which he is charged with 8 counts of aggravated assault of a police officer. Mireles was also indicted for evading arrest with a vehicle (alleged to be a deadly weapon) for the pursuit that preceded the shooting and for being a felon in possession of a firearm (also a deadly weapon).

All charges include a habitual offender enhancement allegation due to Mireles previously being convicted on charges of assault on a public servant and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
