In the filed paperwork, the reason given for dismissal was marked "other."
You might remember that KHOU reported Trevino was arrested last March. When he returned to the newscast the following week, Trevino said on air the incident happened on his way home from the rodeo.
According to court records, this was the anchor's first DWI offense.
KHOU made clear that it stood behind its anchor.
I asked KHOU 11 and Trevino for comment on the dismissal but did not hear back from the anchor or a representative of the station. Trevino's attorney told me no comment.
