A seven-year veteran of the San Antonio Police Department was arrested Thursday night on a theft by public servant charge, a third-degree felony.
Konrad Chatys, 32, was arrested after a New Year's Eve incident in which he is accused of taking several thousand dollars, a rifle and marijuana from a couple after a domestic disturbance call.
Eyewitness News has now learned that Chatys served a 15-day suspension from late December 2013 to January 2014 for improper use of city property, according to suspension paperwork for Chatys.
An Internal Affairs investigation found in July 2013 that Chatys used his patrol vehicle's computer to run background checks on three people for non-police purposes.
At the time, Chatys also had a woman in his patrol vehicle whom he had picked up during a service call in the 7900 block of Pipers Creek, according to the paperwork. Chatys later lied while being questioned by Internal Affairs investigators in October 2013.
