Arrested on one count of allegedly furnishing alcohol to a minor was Bonnie Horn Guerra, former Poteet ISD School Board President.

Poteet officers were summoned out on Saturday night to complaints of loud music and a disturbance involving two males at the home of Guerra on Fourth Street.

When they arrived, officers witnessed several underage guests in possession of alcohol as well as empty cans scattered about the yard.

Upon entering the home, there were several ice chests full of beer, a game of beer pong (cups filled with beer) set up on a table and liquor and beer on the counters.

Sgt. Luis Farias noted “there were no snacks or food, just a chocolate birthday cake and lots of beer.”

In all, 28 Minor in Possession citations were written, some minors were in their early teens. Several youths did escape the home before police could write them up.

Sgt. Farias offered this bit of fact “We don’t make the laws, we enforce them”.

Guerra, a mother of three, has been involved with the school board and was active in Poteet Little League as well.

Of the 28 youths that were cited, six were athletes at Poteet High School. Poteet Superintendent Andy Castillo commented, “There is a Code of Conduct in place. Consequences for these athletes are what the district calls “10×10”. There are ten days of additional conditioning. Until these ten days are completed, there is no extracurricular participation.”

-These students will, according to the code, miss this week’s Homecoming game against Carrizo Springs and next week’s game against Charlotte.

Poteet police were assisted by the Atascosa County Sheriff’s office.
