Kerr County Jail Records

KERRVILLE — A Kerr County Sheriff Deputy has been charged with Driving While Intoxicated, according to Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer.

It was said in a Thursday morning press release that Deputy Justin Outlaw, 26, who was off duty at the time, went to pick up his assigned patrol unit after having some scheduled maintenance performed.

After leaving the repair shop, he allegedly backed into a stopped vehicle with the patrol unit.

“Per my policy, this incident had to immediately be investigated by an outside agency, that being the Department of Public Safety,” stated Sheriff Hierholzer.

The other vehicle didn’t sustain any damage but the patrol vehicle reportedly suffered less than $400 in damage.

It was also determined after an investigation according to Sheriff Hierholzer, that Deputy Outlaw, who had been off for a couple of days, had been drinking.

Deputy Outlaw was arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated and immediately terminated from the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office.

“All I have to say about this is that I have never, and will never, tolerate bad behavior by someone who has been given the honor to protect and serve as a public servant,” said Sheriff Heirholzer.

Outlaw was with the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office for approximately four years.
