Specific details about the investigation were not available Thursday from police or TABC officials.
However, Martin E. Herrmann, 50, (shown here) was arrested Wednesday and released Thursday said Capt. Michael Baldwin, police spokesman. Baldwin, contacted late Thursday, said he could not access bond information.
Carolyn Beck, TABC spokeswoman, was contacted late Thursday, and she provided this written statement:
"The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) is cooperating with the Fort Worth Police Department (FWPD) in their investigation of former TABC Agent Martin Herrmann. TABC was made aware of the police department's investigation into Herrmann on Nov. 20, 2012. The following day, TABC initiated an internal administrative investigation to determine if Herrmann violated TABC Work and Personal Conduct Policies. Due to the criminal nature of the FWPD investigation, Agent Herrmann was immediately placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of those investigations. Herrmann was terminated from employment with TABC on Nov. 28, 2012, for refusal to cooperate with TABC's investigation.
"Herrmann had no history of disciplinary actions or complaints filed against him since being hired by TABC in October 2005. As with all TABC agents, Herrmann is a TCLEOSE-certified peace officer, and an extensive background check was conducted prior to being hired by TABC. Inquiries about the investigation against Agent Herrmann should be directed to the Fort Worth Police Department."
