EPPD Officer Arrested At Fort Bliss Faces Federal Charges

United States Attorney Robert Pitman announced that a one-count information filed Friday charges El Paso Police Department detective Edric Ray Flores, 34, with one count of driving while intoxicated on Oct. 24 at on Fort Bliss.

Flores faces up to 180 days in federal prison and a maximum $2,000 fine. This case was investigated by the Provosts Marshal’s Office at Fort Bliss. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Hembroff will be prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

Flores was put on administrative leave after Fort Bliss military police detained him on suspicion of drunken driving.

An El Paso police statement said the six-year police force veteran failed to stop for military police while speeding inside Fort Bliss.

The statement says Flores was taken into custody under suspicion of driving while intoxicated, evading arrest and unlawful possession of a weapon on a federal facility and later released.

Police referred Flores’ case to the U.S. attorney’s office for consideration.
