Police arrested an off duty Austin police officer early Saturday morning for allegedly driving drunk on Lake Travis.
Officer Jason Powers Huskins was arrested on a boat near the mouth of Devil’s Cove at Lake Travis. Police also arrested the boat’s passenger, James Ryan Englehardt.
An arrest affadavit say police initially responded to a 911 call reporting a burglary at a home located near Devil’s Cove. Police say Englehardt drove a boat to shore then let Huskins take the driver’s seat to put the boat in neutral.
While Huskins waited, records show Englehardt admitted to stealing a golf cart, driving up to a stranger’s house, then walking inside to make a sandwich.
