Uvalde school board fires police chief

1 min read


The embattled now-former chief was a no-show at Wednesday’s meeting, instead submitting a 17-page statement asserting his First Amendment rights were violated.

UVALDE, Texas — Pete Arredondo has been fired as Uvalde CISD’s chief of police. The decision is effective immediately.

The vote by district school board members was unanimous Wednesday evening, in a meeting where the embattled Arredondo – who led the botched law enforcement response at Robb Elementary exactly three months ago – was a no-show.

Instead, his attorney submitted a 17-page statement calling for him to be reinstated with back pay. Arredondo had been on unpaid leave since July 22.
