A Civil Service grievance hearing was held Wednesday inside the San Benito Municipal Building for Police Captain Arnold Garcia, who received a three-day suspension and a demotion for allegedly failing to complete a drug test in June of this year, this while he was assistant chief.
Garcia and his attorney, Roberto Garcia, are trying to overturn a three-day suspension, a punishment they believe to be unfair.
The first person called to testify on Wednesday was the man who administered the drug test in June. He stated that Garcia complained about the drug test being conducted so early in the morning since one of the first things people do when they wake up is urinate.
