Toxicology reports say Moody coach was intoxicated

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Toxicology reports are back regarding a Moody High School baseball coach who was arrested on a DWI charge back in March.

According to the report, 41-year old Cornelius Gallegos' blood-alcohol level tested at .17, which is more than twice the legal limit.

It was at the end of March when police spotted Gallegos driving erratically on Saratoga at Weber. Officers followed him and then pulled him over. Investigators say he failed a field sobriety test.

According to the police report, officers say Gallegos spoke very slowly with a thick tongue, stared blankly with glassy eyes and smelled slightly of alcohol.

When the officer asked where he was coming from, Gallegos said very confusedly, "From somewhere in the city."

The report goes on to say that the baseball coach stumbled out of the car, and the officer had to catch him as he fell backwards during a field sobriety test.

The Corpus Christi Independent School District suspended the coach with pay following his arrest, but he was reinstated the following month.

A spokesperson for CCISD said Monday that Gallegos remains employed by the district.
