During the past three years, 39 Dallas drivers were wrongfully stopped and ticketed for the offense of not speaking English.  Police chief David Kunkle (right) is investigating, and those who paid the $204 fine will be reimbursed.


The citations were issued in several different patrol divisions by at least six different officers. One of those officers was responsible for five of the citations, Kunkle said.

 

The case that led to the discovery of all the others occurred Oct. 2, when Ernestina Mondragon was stopped for making an illegal U-turn in the White Rock area. Rookie Officer Gary Bromley cited Mondragon for three violations: disregarding a traffic control device, failure to present a driver’s license and “non-English speaking driver.”

 

All pending cases will be dropped, thankfully.
