By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

A deputy with the Bandera County Sheriff's Office has resigned after being charged with driving while intoxicated in Kerr County.
According to BCSO Chief Deputy Matt King, Deputy Charles Haffa, 56, who worked in animal control, turned in his resignation to the department Friday, March 6.
After an accident involving his personal vehicle on Feb. 16 in Center Point, he consented to a breathalizer test. At that time, Department of Public Safety Trooper James Behrens arrested Haffa, charging him with DWI.
After the arrest, BCSO initiated an administrative investigation, placing Haffa on unpaid administrative leave. According to King, Haffa never returned to work after being charged with DWI.
Haffa began working for Bandera County as a jailer in April 2011. He became an animal control officer with BCSO in July 2013. He lives in Center Point.
