McALLEN, Texas -

McALLEN, Texas (AP) - A South Texas sheriff's son has been charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and assaulting a public servant.
An arrest affidavit says 36-year-old John Carlos Trevino asked McAllen police if they knew who he was before his arrest.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino declined comment - saying he could not speak for his son's actions.
Lt. Joel Morales says officers early Saturday were called to a residence on a complaint of a suspicious person. An affidavit says John Carlos Trevino had slurred speech, smelled of alcohol and resisted arrest. He allegedly knocked a jailer to the floor.
His bond was set at $14,150. Jail officials Sunday didn't immediately update his custody status.
Another son of the sheriff, ex-Mission police Officer Jonathan Trevino, awaits sentencing in a drug conspiracy case.
